I'd like to say a huge thank you to all the families who came out to support our Stampede runners today! It was wonderful to have families on campus cheering our kids on. Thank you to our Stampede Committee for their time and dedication: Marcine Jansen, Katie Diec, Christy Kuo, Priscilla Shaw, Sagarika Rao, Maria Contente, and Ashwin Agrawal. There were also several other parents who supported the set up, clean-up, first aide, water stations, and taking photos.
Staff Appreciation Week
Asian Pacific American Heritage Month
The observance originated in 1978 when a joint congressional resolution established Asian/Pacific American Heritage Week. The first 10 days of May were chosen to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843, and the contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad completed on May 10, 1869.
Mental Health Awareness Month
Tickets are still available for Annie. Several current and past Meadow Heights students are performing in this production!
