BCCS celebrates Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month

Monday, May 3, 2021

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month. This month is a time to celebrate the unique histories, traditions, cultures, contributions and futures of Asian people and Pacific Islanders who have enriched the United States. It is important to acknowledge the wide array of backgrounds and ethnicities that the terms “Asian” and “Pacific Islander” refer to, honoring each and standing against the hate and violence that we see continuing to grow today.

This month, we want to invite our Asian and Pacific Islander students, staff, and families to share more about themselves and their backgrounds. To our AAPI community, what does this month mean to you? What would you like people to know about your heritage? How will you celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month? How would you like to be celebrated by others? Let us know on social media or by emailing communications@bccs286.org and we will share with our BC community.
