May is Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month – a celebration of the contributions that generations of AAPIs have made to American history, society, and culture. While our students will be celebrating AAPI Heritage Month by exploring AAPI history, accomplishments, and culture in our very own Media Center, we invite you to celebrate and learn about AAPI month with your child(ren) beyond the classroom. Below are helpful parent resources for celebrating:
