Affinity Groups at Winn Brook

We are thrilled to share that we are forming affinity groups at each of our elementary schools. Affinity groups are designated “safe spaces,” intended to support and amplify the voices of individuals with a particular identity who have historically been marginalized. The groups we are piloting this year will be for students who identify as Black or Brown. Students will have the opportunity to share their experiences, connect with fellow peers who may have similar experiences in school, and build a trusting relationship among each other. These groups will meet for thirty minutes every two weeks during the school day  Beginning on November 12th, and will be facilitated by Amanda Lamoretti. Amanda is the art teacher at Winn Brook, and she has also been specifically trained to lead affinity groups in Belmont.  

Please fill out this form by this Monday, November 8th, to give your child(ren) permission to participate.
