Educating the whole child and honoring the diversity of each individual from
Pre-elementary (age 3) through Grade 8.

DEIB Logo & Words: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging

We believe in the worth and dignity of all people.

We learn, reflect, grow, and effect change through dialogue, education, and action.

We foster a community that acts with compassion, embraces discomfort, thinks critically, questions norms, and welcomes the world’s multiple perspectives.

We use our voices, challenge ourselves and others, and stand up for ourselves and others against injustice.

We champion, cultivate, and celebrate all members of our community so that we all participate as our full authentic selves, and thereby become stronger in our shared diversity. 




November DEIB Update
Laurren Chase

Eton School is dedicated to fostering an inclusive and equitable environment where all members of our school community feel valued, respected, and empowered. We work to address and dismantle systemic barriers, promote diversity, celebrate differences, and ensure that every individual feels a strong sense of belonging. 

Highlights from November Include:

Americans of Chinese Descent History Month Event Planning
Earlier this year Washington enacted a bill designating January as Americans of Chinese Descent History Month. To celebrate the inaugural month this January the Community Subcommittee of the DEIB Committee, in partnership with an Eton parent of Chinese descent, began planning an educational event for January.

Main Building Clubhouse Multicultural Corner
Books and activities that correspond with different heritage months are being featured in the book nook in the Activity Room where students in grades 1-8 have Clubhouse. Clubhouse Supervisor Ms. Chloe planned some great activities for Native American Heritage Month!

Faculty Professional Development
November was full of learning! On 2 November, faculty members participated in an hour-long virtual learning session with A Queer Endeavor that focused on centering identity and community in the classroom. Then, on 9 November, there were two neurodiversity workshops that ran simultaneously on campus. Pre- and Lower Elementary teachers attended Connection before Correction: Neuroscience, Post-COVID Trauma, & Regulation in Educational Settings with play therapist Dr. Cary Hamilton, while Upper Elementary and Middle School teachers worked with Ben Wahl from Ryther on adolescent executive functioning.
