In honor and celebration of Native American Heritage Month, students across our school are engaging in reading and learning about the culture and ancestry of Indigenous peoples. Through the use of rich picture books, primary sources, and interdisciplinary approaches, we are focused on highlighting the remarkable contributions and traditions of Native Americans through a historical and culturally responsive lens.
