Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month
This month we recognize the historical and cultural contributions of individuals of Asian and Pacific Islander heritage descent to the United States. The fields of science, medicine, arts, activism, and many more are all stronger due to the significant contributions from those of AAPI heritage. Today Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are the fastest growing racial group in the United States. The 5th and 6th grade students researched well-known members of AAPI descent and presented their work.
The 5th-8th grade students recently tackled the ever present issue of climate change by writing fictional stories about what the world could turn into if the issue is not addressed. Each story allows the students to express their worries, dreams, and hopes. Stop by and check out the bulletin board if you want to read the creativity shown by our amazing students.
Let’s face it. This school year has been weird. But we’re getting through it, in part thanks to our nation’s amazing educators. Take a moment to #ThankATeacher during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 2-6.
Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day—and in a year where instruction could be virtual, in-person or a mix of both, their immense work and impact have provided a much-needed sense of community and connection. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, educators across America are working hard to ensure every student has the tools they need to reach their full potential.
