On Thursday morning Tiffany Park Elementary School students were welcomed with encouragement and fist-bumps from Renton community members.

The school held a “Dap Line” event where school and district staff were joined by parents and community members of color in a line of high-fives, fist-bumps, and daps through the school to help students start their day with energy, music, and inspiration.

The event also included a career fair featuring people of color in a variety of careers for students to learn about what their future can hold.

The event was planned by the school’s I-CARE (Inviting Conversations About Race and Equity) parent committee, which was created to purposely provide students with positive examples of people of color.
