May is Asian American & Pacific Islander Month-- Mark your Calendar!

Please join us at 4:00 PM on Monday, May 3 for our PAT AAPI Month Virtual Kick-Off and Curriculum Exchange. Please register here. You will be able to find all the resources for PAT AAPI Month on our website.

Your PAT AAPI Month planning committee has been hard at work. We are excited to share lessons, resources, and events for AAPI Month. There will be a variety of ways to get involved-- from visiting a local AAPI-owned business in the community, to teaching a lesson we created for you, to checking out a new podcast that centers AAPI folx. Once members complete "three in a row" on this Choice Board, you can enter a raffle to win a rad prize such as a $25 gift certificate to a local AAPI owned juicery or restaurant.

We broke up the month of May into 4 different themes. Here's a peek at each week's theme:

  • Week 1: Week of Action 
  • Week 2: Asian American History
  • Week 3: Centering Pacific Islanders
  • Week 4: AAPI Joy 

Please note: this is NOT the month to teach about Asian history, culture, or traditions. Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have a long and rich history in the United States. We need to teach about those histories and experiences to expand ideas of who is an American.
