Dear Roxbury Prep Families, 

March is Women’s History Month. Every day at our schools, we honor the women that have blazed a path for all of our students, but we are excited to have an opportunity to acknowledge the tremendous contributions that women leaders have made to our nation and our schools. We celebrate inspirational figures like Isabel Allende, who has constructed magical worlds and paid homage to women in all of her novels, and Rebecca Lee Crumpler, who was the first black woman in the U.S. to earn a medical degree. And we salute our community of women who support our schools, our families, and our students every day – our leaders, teachers, social workers and ops team members are the backbone of Uncommon. These everyday heroes and historical figures remind us that our work, our accomplishments, and our success cannot be achieved without the women who have and continue to shape and change history.

As a reminder, this newsletter is now monthly. We look forward to sharing more updates with you all in April.

Resources

March is Spiritual Wellness Month at Uncommon!

Spiritual wellness is when individuals feel a sense of meaning and choose to live by their own personal beliefs. It is a personal matter that allows us to know what we want, need and believe, while also empowering us to learn more about others! Spiritual wellness empowers us to search for meaning and purpose in our daily lives. It also allows us to learn how to balance our needs with the needs of others. Exercising the soul helps keep us balance, motivated, and excited about learning and about life. Below are a few resources to help you practice your spiritual wellness!
