Dear Bosco Community: Please read this important message from Dr. De Larkin, Principal of St. John Bosco High School. Click the "continue reading" link below to read the complete statement. To get involved with the discussion, we invite you to share your thoughts and suggestions through this form.

Dear Bosco Community,

As we reach day fourteen since the murder of George Floyd, let us honor his life and all Black lives that were unjustly taken from us through action. Black Lives Matter. St. John Bosco High Sschool stands against racism, condemns violence, and will continue to build a school community that fosters belonging for Black students. The murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery are the most recent and tragic reminders that the United States' economic, healthcare, educational, and criminal justice systems continue to produce disproportionate outcomes for Black people. George Floyd's death adds strength to the rip current of racism pulling America away from justice. Pope Francis recently noted that "we cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism.  It's no longer enough to just be 'not racist' – we must elevate ourselves to be actively anti-racist."

Although, we currently facilitate student learning experiences about racial injustice, we can do more. We can do more to teach that racial diversity is a foundation for excellence.  We can do more to review and update our school curricula to dialogue about and understand systemic racism and its effects across all metrics (e.g., financial, education, health, home ownership, criminal justice, infant mortality rate). We can do more to teach our young men to utilize the tools in our democracy to continue to change its systems to reflect liberty and justice for all. 

We commit to working with our faculty, staff, parents, students, and alumni to fulfill our mission to educate and accompany young people, especially those who are marginalized members of society. The following actions outline realistic steps that we will take as we continue to fulfill our mission and be leaders in creating change:

·  Meet with staff, parent, and student groups to facilitate dialogue and create actionable items to implement in our programming and curriculum this school year

·  Develop a framework for having conversations about racial and social justice with our students to all staff.

·  Host student forums to reflect on our experiences, raise awareness, and dialogue about change.

We also are open to your thoughts, suggestions, or feedback on how St. John Bosco High School can be a better and more inclusive school community for Black and marginalized community members. Please use this form to add to the conversation.

- Dr. Christian De Larkin, Principal
