In the last year PPS schools have had the opportunity to celebrate the cultural diversity within our community with a wide variety of events and celebrations, ranging from Hispanic/LatinX Heritage Month to Black History Month to Asian American Heritage Month.

To expand upon these celebrations, we would like to provide a platform for diverse members of our community to share their voices and perspectives for future calendar spotlights. This is an opportunity for increased awareness of cultural diversity within our community. 

We invite PPS students and families to share suggestions for cultural events and celebrations not immediately addressed within our messaging about curriculum. 

Here is a short list of some of the cultural spotlights. This list is in no way intended to be comprehensive. It is an invitation to explore as a stakeholder of the community options for monthly themes (as opposed to individual holidays or observances). We invite you to email with suggestions.
