January 22, 2020: Chapin Conversations: Community & Belonging (for applicant families)

From 6:00-8:00pm. For Middle and Upper School applicants only. Registration required.

On January 22, the Chapin community will host prospective parents for a special affinity group event, “Chapin Conversations: Community and Belonging.” An essential element in building community is fostering a sense of belonging through the acknowledgment that one is not alone in their experiences of life. One effective community-building practice is participation in affinity groups, where participants have a specific shared experience. For example, Chapin is an affinity group centered on the shared experience of gender. Similarly, a kindergarten class is an affinity group with the shared experience of age and/or ability.

For people whose race, religion, and/or socioeconomic status has been historically underrepresented in a community, affinity groups provide opportunities to engage in supportive conversations grounded in that shared aspect of identity.

During the evening, there will be remarks from both Head of School, Dr. Patricia Hayot, and Director of Community Life and Diversity, Erica Corbin. We are pleased to invite prospective parents who would like to engage in these intimate discussions with current parents and learn more about being a member of Chapin’s community to join us.

Once you have applied to the school, you will receive an invitation to register (parents and guardians only) and choose the appropriate affinity group(s) for your family. To learn more about affinity groups, please visit the following links:
