Demonstration School Tours

Students at a Renton School District elementary school talk with visitors about their school.

Join us at a BELONG Partners Demonstration School where you will participate in class meeting observations and talk with a panel of students and educators! RSVP to

Our next event is:

Monday, June 3, 2024, 8:45 – 10:15am

Several times a year, we have the opportunity to host community members at one of our partner schools to observe class meetings and hear from a panel of students and school staff about the impact of the BELONG Partners approach in their school community.

We typically meet in the school office first for a short overview presentation, and then separate into groups to observe a few different class meetings in different grade classrooms. After that we come back together as a whole group and are able to hear from a panel of students about their school experience.

We’d love for you to join us! Please contact us or email if you would like to learn about the dates of future school tours, or would like additonal information. Note that we are limited to 15 guests at each event and spaces do fill quickly.

Renton School District Principal Holly Megan Thompson, BELONG Partners Facilitator Roshae Lowe and Director of Program Stacy Lappin, and Assistant Principal Deeann Wells.

Feedback from recent school tour attendees

“I am totally blown away and inspired by what I saw today. I would love to see this approach expand further into the community and beyond. After experiencing the tour, I believe this model should be the standard all across the board, for every school.” Renton parent

“Thank you for fitting our four staff members into the school tour of Lakeridge Elementary today. WOW, did they come back fired up! I see hope all over them. Thank you again. We are so excited to work with BELONG Partners and have the support and guidance we need to create a safe, positive learning environment for ALL of our students.”Program Specialist, local school district
