East Central community,
It is important to honor and recognize all backgrounds and cultures. Every citizen must do their part for a thriving and inclusive environment. As part of the District's equity task force and steering committees, we will continue to proudly recognize nationally and even internationally designated commemorative months with education geared towards our District's unity while celebrating culture and heritage.
According to the Library of Congress, the following months will be recognized during the academic year: Constitution Day & Citizenship Day (Sept. 17), Italian American History (Oct.), American Indian Heritage (Nov.), International Day of Persons with Disabilities (Dec. 3), Human Rights Day (Dec. 10), Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Jan. 18), African American History (Feb.), Women's History and Irish-American Heritage (March), Deaf History (March 13-April 15), Jewish American Heritage and Asian Pacific Heritage Month (May), and Pride Month (June).

Thank you for helping us celebrate diversity and inclusion. Together, we can show compassion and appreciation for all cultures as we prepare our students for a global economy.
