Announcements:

 Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

This month, we recognize the contributions and influence of Asian Americans and Pacific Islander Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States.  Today we celebrate Kodomo no hi (Children’s Day). On this Japanese national holiday, children are respected and honored for their individual strengths and happiness is wished upon them.  Kodomo no hi is particularly well known for the unique traditions and decorations including Koinobori, which are cloth carp streamers flown on poles outside of public buildings and private houses to bring luck and good fortune to the children inside. Koi fish, or Carp, are believed to be strong, spirited fish and are revered for their determination in fighting as they swim upstream and through powerful waterfalls. Koinobori symbolize the desire for children to become brave and strong individuals.
