Change must begin at home with families having meaningful conversations about race, racism and social inequalities. Having these courageous conversations with your child leads to the important work needed to break the chain of systemic racism in this country, putting an end to racial injustices.
As parents and members of Eastside, we will continue to educate ourselves, intentionally engage and serve the needs of our diverse community, carefully curate books that feature diverse characters, teach messages of empathy and share stories that may differ from our own.
We stand together and support our Black community.
PopUp StoryWalk is a local program promoting literacy, health, and art appreciation using deconstructed children’s storybooks installed in outdoor community spaces. Begin a children’s story at the start of a trail, read posted pages along the way, and end the trial as you end the book.
PopUp offers an opportunity that takes learning outside of the 4-walled classroom. However, we have put a hold on all new installs while social distancing is a priority to flatten the curve.
We will update this page as quickly as possible with changes to our popup location. Also follow our facebook and instagram for up to date information.

We did this on Saturday and it was magical! We were alone on the trail, sun shining, fall leaves were quietly falling.
A moment I will cherish in my memories. – Sherry Nadeau
