Celebrating National Hispanic American Heritage Month


The West Shore School District Board of School Directors, administration, and staff embrace a shared commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion, which supports our District pledge to provide students with inspiring and relevant experiences so they may live meaningful, purposeful, and impactful lives.
 
In addition to discussions which will naturally occur during social studies, history, and world language classes, the West Shore School District will be celebrating National Hispanic American Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15.  We encourage our school community to join us in recognizing Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society.

Shared Stories: District Inclusive Literature Initiative (K-5) - District Elementary schools will receive grade-level specific books to be read to students during the month. Books were chosen not only based on their literary value, but the way in which they each highlight cultural and physical diversity in an age-appropriate way. Special thanks to the West Shore Foundation and CARES Act for funding the purchase of these award-winning titles for students. Click here to learn more.
