On May 19 at 6:45pm, JVF will host a virtual Family Read-Aloud Night with guest author Janet Wong!
During the month of May, JVF is excited about our learning focused on Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage. Through the help of our Equity Team, resources have been shared with teachers for their use in the classroom related to this area of study. Additionally, during this month, all classes will, through children's literature, learn and discuss various areas of Asian and Pacific Islander culture with Mrs. Coleman's support in their Library Media time.
