WE CARE WEDNESDAY

This school year, we are excited that We Care Wednesdays will highlight more themes... and this month we are celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month (9/15-10/15)!
Big picture

Sonia Maria Sotomayor

Last week was the final Hispanic Heritage Month 2020 celebration and we honored an amazing woman, Sonia Sotomayor.


Sonia Maria Sotomayor is an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. She was nominated by President Barack Obama and has served since 2009. Sotomayor is the first Hispanic and Latina member of the Court. She grew up in the Bronx neighborhood of New York City to parents of Puerto Rican descent. She attended a local high school and then went on to study at Princeton University and Yale Law School. Sonia worked hard to achieve her goals and is doing important work that impacts our lives on a daily basis. She also recently published a children's book called, Just Ask! Be Different, Be Brave, Be You. In that story she talks about her experience with being diagnosed with diabetes as a child and she encourages us all to connect with and support each other no matter our differences.


Sonia Sotomayor quote:

“It is important for all of us to appreciate where we come from and how that history has really shaped us in ways that we might not understand.”


Thank you for celebrating Hispanic Heritage with us this month... we look forward to more celebrations in months to come - stay tuned!
