CommunityEd Speaker Series

CommunityEd gives Head-Royce students, families, faculty, and staff the chance to learn together. From book clubs to guest lectures, these events enrich our (currently virtual) lives. Each speaker offers a unique perspective on our school year's theme of resilience, well-being, and community connections. Join us!
