|Hello wonderful Ardmore Families,
In May we celebrated the contributions of our Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. We highlighted the rich culture of various communities that represent AAPI in the classroom and school wide. A special activity we embarked on was read alouds by our 5th grade students. In May, 5th graders spent time learning about the contributions of our AAPI community and researched a book they could read about AAPI cultures and traditions to our younger grades. Many students participated in the read alouds by visiting younger grade classrooms and reading their story selected. The 5th graders did a fantastic job and even came up with reflection questions to engage the young learners in the stories.
We have an amazing group of staff that represent our AAPI community. We learn so much from each and everyone every day. It is a privilege to be part of such a racially and ethnically diverse place. Every days students learn the values of acceptance, community, care and respect. We are grateful for our staff and it’s such a pleasure getting to work and know them. Here is a list of our staff and some pictures:
Mrs. Hana Roberts, 2nd Grade Teacher
Ms. Yifan Fu, Special Education Teacher and Ms. Eve Chan, Special Education and MLL Facilitator
General School Assistants: Mr.Daniel Kwan, Mrs. Jenny Keong, Ms. Elaine Lam, Ms. Kathy Lee, Mrs. Jesse Lay, Ms. Sandy Tang
Mr. Khai Vo, school custodian
