Unfortunately, as a country we are faced with another horrific tragedy. As a school community, we have resources and adult support to help students who may have heard about and are talking about the anti-Semitic attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Shielding young children from media and violence is important because of their limited capacity to make sense of violence they see in the media. However, some children may have seen news footage, or overheard others talking about these events. If children are talking about the event it’s important to assure children of their safety and point out the adults who help to keep them safe. Other suggestions include keeping your answers simple if children pose questions and to maintain normal routines and schedules. We have provided a couple of resources below if you’re looking for more information. At the same time, tragedies like this remind us of the importance of standing up to hate and teaching children how to be allies, upstanders, and to embrace differences. As a community, we have seen a rise in graffiti incidents and hateful dialogues and symbols that do not represent our core values of being respectful, responsible, honest, engaged & safe. We have also seen the Reading community come together during a unifying rally, creating a collective voice of peace. We must continue to promote a dialogue that addresses these messages, showing our children that we stand by our core beliefs and becoming caring citizens. Our children need to hear messages of acceptance, love and respect in all avenues of their lives. At Wood End, we seek to teach and share these messages every day and through our Open Circle curriculum. Our all-school meetings are designed to teach students what being an upstanding citizen looks and sounds like in young children. As a community it is important for us to acknowledge the grief, sadness, and anger that many are feeling, and the wonderful acts of courage, bravery and support that came during and after this awful act of hatred. As adults we have a our own unique ways of processing and dealing with this information. Please remember that some children may be aware of what happened in Pittsburgh while others might not know anything has happened. The most important thing we can communicate to our children is that the adults around them keep them safe. We will continue to teach them the power of their actions and words. We all need to take time to care for ourselves and our families while supporting those affected by these events. Please feel free to contact us if you are looking for more support in helping you or your family process the latest events. https://www.adl.org/education/resources/tools-and-strategies/5-tips-for-talking-with-children-about-the-shooting-at-the
