“The tree and symbols that represent diversity at Monroe Elementary School begin at the base of the tree. This foundation includes parents, their family heritage and values, PTA, staff and community.
The roots of the tree are how change begins. The roots represent loving self and others; opening minds and hearts; thinking about our own thoughts and actions; making the right choices; and a willingness to speak out for what is right.
The trunk is how we nurture change. Here is where acts of kindness are shared.
The tree top (branches and leaves) holds the beauty of diversity.”
