National Hispanic Heritage Month is observed from September 15 - October 15. During this month the culture and history of people with ancestry from Spain, Mexico and the Spanish-speaking countries in the Americas is celebrated.
On Wednesday, August 8th and 9th, Ms. Polk and her ASB students facilitated this year's 7th grade orientation. Our in-coming students got an opportunity to participate in team-building activities led by the ASB kids. Students were also given a tour of the school to ensure they know where to go on the first day of school. It was a great opportunity to build our student's leadership skills and create a level of comfort for our 7th graders.

Women's History Month
March is National Women’s History Month. We celebrate the achievements of women, and womanhood. We honor the many women who have shaped our history, and also celebrate those who make progress in our time. We honor the historic achievements of courageous women who pioneered professional and social change through their fearless work. We remember the sacrifices our mothers, sisters, and daughters made to make us succeed. American women have led movements for social and economic justice, made groundbreaking scientific discoveries, enriched our culture with stunning works of art and literature, and charted bold directions in our foreign policy. They have served our country with valor in the battlefields. In this month of March, and every day, let us pause and salute our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, daughters, aunts and every woman everywhere.
Black History Month
February is Black History Month, and Black History is a huge part of the American History and Cultural Experience. We pause now and through the year to recognize and honor the achievements and contributions of Black Americans and Black American culture to American History and Culture. We celebrate various achievements made in the areas of Agriculture, Education, Civil Rights, Politics and Government, Military and National Security, Science and Technology, Aerospace Engineering, Sports, Music and Entertainment, Architecture, Medicine, and other aspects of life. The Black American Journey has been long and rough. Progress has been made over the years, but there is still more work to be done.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day
We celebrate the life and achievements of a great American and Civil Rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He had a dream of social change and full civil rights for all Americans. He led a nonviolent civil rights movement and successfully protested against racial discrimination in federal and state laws. He exhibited values of courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility and service. We honor his selfless acts that created a legacy of hope and healing in America.
