What is Sankofa?
Newcomb Sankofa Village (NSV) is a community of care and support for Parents and Caregivers of Black children at Newcomb Academy. LBUSD and Newcomb Academy are committed to centering the unique needs of our community members and engaging in a way that affirms their cultural identities. We recognize that our Village members play an essential role in helping students attain success in school, and as partners, we endeavor to work together to make certain that all Black children achieve excellence on purpose.
We strive to provide our Newcomb Village with the information, tools, and skills that will empower them to elevate academic achievement and center social-emotional wellbeing in their home, school, and community.
We would like to get to know our Newcomb Village and bring additional resources, tools, and opportunities to build community.
