Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

What is the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Committee?

Rampello PTSA represents ALL parents, teachers, caregivers and students within the Rampello K-8 community, which enables us to best achieve our mission to make every child's potential a reality. Our collective backgrounds, perspectives and ideas allow us to create the strongest future and direction for Rampello PTSA. Our DEI Committee works to bring awareness to the importance of diversity, equity & inclusion efforts within the Rampello K-8 community at every level. Our volunteers provide resources for educational and awareness opportunities that promote diverse perspectives for both staff and families, as well as coordinate opportunities to expose students to a variety of diverse cultural experiences.

What are some of the efforts DEI supports? 

Past events the DEI Committee provided include a Hip Hop after school club for students, activities during Mega Night to celebrate diverse cultures, monthly diverse book giveaways at our PTSA general meetings, sharing educational resources for families and staff on topics relating to diversity, equity and inclusion, our anti-racism book club and more. 

Who can be part of the DEI Committee? 

We are always looking for volunteers to help coordinate activities and events or to help research resources and educational opportunities to provide to our Rampello community. If you are interested in getting involved, reach out to DEI@rampelloptsa.org
