About Mosaic

Mosaic is the K-12 PTA organization serving the entire Hunter College Campus Schools community.

We are a parent committee promoting diversity, inclusivity, equity, fluidity, affinity, allyship and intersectionality. Our goal is to have the important conversations surrounding these issues to increase mutual understanding and deepen the community engagement within our school and in the greater society.

Mosaic Circles

We have re-organized our structure in hopes of expanding our work from multiple nodes of engagement. We’ve established six “circles.” Click below to learn about each one. Parents can join just one, or two or three, or all of them, depending on your bandwidth. These circles are inchoate in shape and scope, so feedback is most assuredly welcome!

This is the ab-ex circle, where we can discuss ideas for breaking binaries, integrating concepts and perspectives, bringing different resources into the conversation for synergistic solutions.

This is the grassroots and communications networking channel. This circle focuses on person-to-person connection, recruitment, and outreach inside and outside the HCCS community, as well as public-facing communications from platforms like the website, the newsletter, the Google Group, and the WhatsApp.

Mosaic events—meetings, evening programs, schoolwide programs—are developed and carried out in this circle.

This is the formal DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusivity) circle for HCHS. All high school initiatives involving curriculum, representative student body, representative faculty body, and cultural climate will connect here.

This is the formal DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusivity) circle for HCES. All elementary school initiatives involving curriculum, representative student body, representative faculty body, and cultural climate will connect here.

This is the nerve center of Mosaic. Representatives from each circle above will meet periodically in this circle to keep us in alignment. Meeting facilitators and budget-savvy experts are encouraged to join this group as well.
