Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

From the APS website:

This May, we celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, a time to honor the rich history and contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) in the United States. AAPI communities have played a pivotal role in shaping the fabric of our society.At APS, we are committed to fostering an environment that embraces diversity and empowers every member of our community. AAPI Month provides a wonderful opportunity for us to explore and appreciate the vast cultural richness and historical depth of these communities.Throughout the month, students can engage in a series of events and activities designed to enrich their understanding of the diverse cultures, traditions and histories of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. We encourage all students, staff and families to participate in these activities in their schools, which are aimed at strengthening our community through increased knowledge and mutual respect.Engaging with the narratives and achievements of the AAPI community not only educates us but also reinforces the importance of inclusion and cultural awareness within our schools and beyond. This month, let us recognize and celebrate the enduring contributions and resilience of Asian-Pacific Americans.For additional resources and to learn more about the significance of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, please visit:
