arab-american history month
Since I've been back to work, my colleague Chellsee and I have been committed to highlighting the unique cultures of our students during our Team & Family celebrations (think all school assemblies) each month. This morning, and for the first time as a school community, we celebrated Arab American History Month (insane because we have such a sizable Yemenis population). Students were so excited to showcase their beautiful cultures, reminding us that though grounded in common faith, their cultures are very diverse. Just a reminder that representation matters SO much and that if we're ever to aim for the collective, we have to understand the importance of acknowledging the individual as well.
