Kaleidoscope

For Lifelong Learners

Over forty years ago, Alumnae Secretary Peggy Webb Patterson, 1947, was charged by Headmistress Anne Healy to create outreach programs for alumnae, their friends, and the Baltimore community. The RPCS Evening School was established during the 1972-1973 academic year and with Peggy’s guidance, RPCS began to develop and offer courses. One of the goals was to support the School’s mission to foster a lifelong love of learning. Kaleidoscope is rebuilding after COVID, and is developing new programming for 2021-2022. We will be offering literary courses, language courses, diversity and inclusion learning opportunities, and more!

 

 

 

YOU'RE INVITED TO THE 
RPCS DEI BOOK SERIES

We invite you to join members of the RPCS community for our first Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Book Series sponsored by the Alumnae Board DEI Committee, the RPCS DEI Office, the Parent Diversity Committee of the Parents' Association and the Board of Trustees DEI Committee.   

This Book Series is for anyone, near or far, 18 or older, who wants to further their knowledge regarding anti-racism and is interested in engaging more fully in the RPCS community.

For the first book in our series, we will be reading How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. Consider purchasing this book at a local bookshop or via Bookshop, Amazon or Barnes & Noble, in hardback, paperback or as an e-book or audiobook. Our group will meet in two sessions over the summer to discuss the key themes and messages of the book. Please join us on:

  • Wednesday, July 21, from 5 - 6:30 p.m. to discuss the introduction and chapters 1 – 9 (pages 1 - 121).
  • Wednesday, August 18, from 5- 6:30 p.m. to discuss chapters 10 - 18 for the second session (pages 122 - 238).

Meeting Location: Roland Park Country School, Trustee Seminar Room (as you walk into the lobby of the RPCS Athletic Complex, it is the first door on your left across from the café).

Zoom links will be sent out in reminder emails a week before each event for those who are not local.

We hope you will join us for one or both of these conversations. If you are interested in participating, please RSVP here by July 14.

This will be the first of several book series that we hope to launch over the upcoming year. If you are interested in participating, but are concerned about costs associated with the book, please contact our DEI Office (owenst@rpcs.org) for assistance by this Friday, June 25. We look forward to your involvement!

Thank you,
