Celebrating Our Community

 

Please refer to our District’s cultural calendar (linked HERE) for each month. We want to recognize and elevate the many celebrations, holidays, and heritages that make our world, community, and neighborhood so beautiful. If you’re interested in sharing your rich culture with us, please reach out as we’re always looking for ways to enrich our students’ experiences and for students to see themselves in our hallways and in our classrooms.

In September, we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, which begins September 15th – October 15th. We want to create create schoolwide displays that honor and recognize the Hispanic/Latinx culture and welcome any of your stories, pictures and artifacts that we can share with our students and staff. Please email me if you are interested in helping.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
