Zoom Meeting

SAVE THE DATE – SWW Zoom meeting- Thursday. 3/9 – 7:00-8:30

Special Guest Speaker will be Steve Rosenblum

D211 School Board Member

the Challenges facing our local High Schools

This Thursday 3/9 at 7pm- SWW is welcoming Steve Rosenblum to speak to us as he runs for re-election for D211 School Board. I have heard Steve speak and he is such a wealth of information in all aspects of just what is happening in our D211 High Schools. His passion for bettering our high schools in all ways possible is so evident . Steve’s spirit and compassion fill the room. Michelle and I cannot wait for you to hear him.

I have been to a few school board meetings to support our School leaders and the students as the district is being seriously challenged by different groups, like Moms For Liberty who are wanting books banned, comprehensive sex education not taught, diversity in our schools not recognized, and our comprehensive U.S. history not presented for fear we will look weak as a nation.

March is

Women’s History Month

We want to celebrate it at the meeting. Michelle and I ask that you search your soul and briefly share with us the woman in history ( and it can be a more recent history)whom you most admire; and in what way has she challenged or affirmed you in your beliefs and your actions.

I have been so challenged in this SWW leadership role – Eleanor Roosevelt has been my go to for strength and courage. I will briefly share on her leadership style and how she has touched me. . Who is YOURS?

Let’s explore topics and policies that pertain to Women’s emotional, physical and sustainable growth.

And finally – please let us know what is on your mind and in your heart in 2023. Last year a lot of SWW focus was on the election-our candidates did so well! YES!! Now this year let’s explore topics and policies that pertain to Women’s emotional, physical and sustainable growth.
