Roots Class (K-2nd grade) w/Marie:

Following the CYRE team meeting, the children were very (very, very) excited to hear that the grownups are thinking about a way for us to have an in person gathering that could be safe for everyone. I explained that this is still just in the thinking about a plan stage, so we can decide if there’s a way to do this. Here are our ideas:

-take lots of carpets or blankets or chairs to show where each person can be
-wear a mask. We know all about how to wear a mask 
-we could play a game
-most important: snacks. We suggest cupcakes with rainbow icing and pumpkin pie 

Seedlings (3rd – 5th) & Wildflower Youth Group (Middle & High School) w/Piaf & Solveij:

This week we came back to the topic of the 8th UU Principle: We must work together for diversity and against racism and oppression. Last time we discussed this topic, the consensus was that this Principle is needed and should be adopted by UUs even though some of the other 7 Principles speak to this idea. This time, we thought about the timeline of this process. The kids/youth felt that this matter is urgent and came up with several reasons why they want it to be adopted right away. Next time we meet, we’ll check in with where we are in this process at Wildflower and how kids and youth can be part of the process.

We also each thought of a time when we had put one of the 8 principles into practice in our lives. Finally, we ended with a collaborative storytelling game! Stay tuned for exciting plans for outdoor meetups this spring and summer 🙂
