Heritage months, from Hispanic Heritage Month to Women’s History Month, have grown out of a need to celebrate contributions from groups that have historically been overlooked. We strive to have a multicultural and anti-bias approach to education. We want our students to be able to consider identity, diversity, justice, and action. We also want our students to be able to see their own experiences reflected in our studies. Through these lenses, we can look at the “big picture,” think critically, cultivate compassion, and consider various perspectives. Celebrations can change from year to year, but here are some examples –

                September – October    Hispanic Heritage Month
