What does it mean to be an American? Part II

We had such a successful forum in December that we want to continue the discussion! We talked about "What it Means to be American" in our last forum and plan to continue the conversation in this next one by discussing what this question means in the context of the Winsor community. You don't need to have attended the December forum to come to this one.

We hope to explore these prompts and more:

  • Who gets to decide who is an American?
  • Who gets left out? Why?
  • How do we, ourselves, define being American?
  • What does the media tell us about who Americans are?
  • What does this question mean at Winsor? Why is it important?
  • What are privileges that come with being American and how can we use our privileges to help others?

We hope to walk away with practical tips for talking with one another and our daughters about some of these questions and more.

Parking: Winsor, unfortunately, cannot guarantee parking. Please go to the front parking lot at 103 Pilgrim Road to see if any of the guest parking spaces are available. If the lot is full, parents will need to seek alternative parking in either the MASCO garage or one of several nearby garages. We also encourage you to take public transportation. Please plan accordingly.
