Students Love the Health Walk
Students raised nearly $4,900 for Sprague's Health Moves Minds Walk, which included a walk as part of the fundraiser.
The fundraiser benefits Health and Physical Education programs focusing on wellness and mental health. A portion of the proceeds was also given to “K-9 Reading Buddies of the North Shore”. This is a program where dogs are used to help students with literacy in the classroom.
Students who raised $200 or more are Vivian Benks, Juliet Leahy, Dominic Hannum, Julian Lande, Shriya Vonguru, and Eli Wang. Katie Jenkins' second-grade class raised the most out of the classes that participated. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the event!

Asian Pacific American Heritage
The roots of Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month can be traced back to 1976, when Jeanie Jew, president of the Organization of Chinese American Women, contacted government officials in response to the lack of Asian Pacific representation in the U.S. bicentennial celebrations that same year. The observance began in 1979 as Asian Heritage Week, established by congressional proclamation. In May 1990, the holiday was expanded further when President George Bush signed a proclamation making it month-long for that year. On October 23, 1992, President Bush signed legislation designating May of every year Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. The month of May was chosen to commemorate two significant events in history: the immigration of the first Japanese immigrants to the United States on May 7, 1843, and the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869 (Golden Spike Day). The diversity and common experiences of the many ethnic groups are celebrated during Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with numerous community festivals as well as government-sponsored activities. Schools celebrate with school entrance and library display and classroom lessons.
