May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, a tribute to and celebration of the cultures, histories, contributions, and achievements of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders across the country. This is a time, as it is always the time, to spread awareness and gain knowledge about the stories of these communities nation-wide and continue to learn about, value, and appreciate our own diverse Northshore community. In our house, we celebrate the differences between and among us and respect every individual who is a part of it. You can take a moment to review the following resources:
- Teacher lessons
- Classroom resources
- https://www.wingluke.org/ (resources and virtual events for families)

Various Northshore district-community members will assemble a panel to be in conversation about their experiences, what it means to care for and be in solidarity with our AAPI community, and strategies for taking ongoing action toward a just education system. Watch the community panel below.
