REMINDER: 

Although we celebrate Black History 365 days a year, February, the official month dedicated to the honoring of the contributions of Black and African Americans, is quickly approaching. The AAPACAdvisory Team urges you to work with your school sites to ensure that celebrations are being planned and evidence of these celebrations are visible and well executed. Additionally, we encourage you to continue exposing your children and family members to our rich history and those who contribute to it both past and present.
