Elysian Heights Community, 

We are wishing you a joyful May and a hopeful Spring. As we step into this new phase we would also like to recognize Asian-American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month! The AAPI Community has a long and rich history and has made innumerable contributions that help create the fabric of our world. Let’s take this time to celebrate that. 

While we are aware that every day is a chance to honor the contributions of this community, we would still like to take this opportunity for celebration. Of course, this is only a beginning. As our school grows together we look forward to a time when these explorations are woven throughout the entirety of the school year.

In a time when AAPI people have been under attack it is especially important that we show support. We all have a responsibility and opportunity to model empathy and change. 

We will send out multiple installments. For now, please take the time to explore the offering below.

Comunidad de Elysian Heights,

Les deseamos un feliz mayo y una primavera esperanzadora. ¡Al entrar en esta nueva fase, también nos gustaría reconocer el Mes de la Herencia Asiático-Americana y de las Islas del Pacífico! La Comunidad AAPI tiene una larga y rica historia y ha realizado innumerables contribuciones que ayudan a crear el tejido de nuestro mundo. Aprovechemos este momento para celebrarlo.

Si bien somos conscientes de que cada día es una oportunidad para honrar las contribuciones de esta comunidad, aún nos gustaría aprovechar esta oportunidad para celebrar. Por supuesto, esto es solo el comienzo. A medida que nuestra escuela crece unida, esperamos un momento en el que estas exploraciones se entrelacen durante todo el año escolar.

En un momento en el que la gente de AAPI ha sido atacada, es especialmente importante que mostremos nuestro apoyo. Todos tenemos la responsabilidad y la oportunidad de modelar la empatía y el cambio.

Enviaremos varias cuotas. Por ahora, tómese el tiempo para explorar la oferta a continuación.
