Common Threads

Guiding Mission Statement for Common Threads Student Spaces

The mission of Common Threads is to provide students an affirming space within Holton to explore and celebrate the dimensions of their identities in order to uplift and empower towards action and positive change in the world. The L.O.V.E. curriculum is at the center of this program designed to help students from minoritized communities examine oppressive systems of power and privilege, and claim their connection with anti-racist resistors throughout history.

The L.O.V.E. Based Curriculum

The following principles are the framework on which the Common Threads Program is built:

  • Looking Inside Oneself - Develop self awareness; investigate my identity, worth, and purpose; empower and nurture myself; conduct a social emotional check-in and decide when I need to nurture, recharge, or empower myself
  • Others and How I Intersect - Investigate the intersections of my identities and my relationships with the identities of others
  • Valuing Our Experiences - Build community, grow together, and hold each other accountable
  • Executing Positive Actions - Learn how to navigate and positively change the climate of the community inside and outside of the school
