Message from the Principal, Mrs. Blevins

On May 17, 2023, the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) collaborated with Woodrow Wilson Middle School to celebrate Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) month. The morning was filled with exciting performances that represented a multitude of cultures across the globe by professional performers (who generously volunteered their time) from India, Bangladesh, Korea, China, Pakistan, Hawaii, and more!

A special thank you to all of the performers: Gurneet Singh, Minakshi Stalhamer, Sakshi Bhardwaj's Bollywood Dance Team, Rio Kikuchi, Luana Haraguchi, Utako Hariya, Neil Desai, Shahid Saleem Khan. We also want to thank Ms. Cara Stine, Mr. Sal Fossa, and Mr. Mirchandani for helping coordinate the student performances.

Throughout the program, more than 60 students participated in the performances and 1,100 students were able to attend the AAPI assembly. We would like to express our utmost gratitude to Edison resident, Akhila Chetan, Assistant Vice President of NJPAC Community Engagement, Eyesha Marable, and Hitisha Patel, the Officer of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion for helping make the event such a great success at Woodrow Wilson Middle School!
