Heritage Months/ Group Recognition Resources

Community and Educator Resources
 
The Castro Valley Board of Education has proclaimed Heritage Months/Group Recognitions throughout each school year. This page is dedicated to sharing resources with our community and district educators to recognize the group highlighted for the month. Each month listed is the month that CVUSD officially acknowledges that heritage/group; however, we understand and agree that celebrating each group throughout the year is one of the ways that we create a sense of belonging for all of our students.
 

pride balloonsPride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. The Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.

Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15 - October 15th. September 15th is an important starting date for this month because it is the independence anniversary for Latin American countries El Salvador, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Honduras. The independence days of Mexico and Chile fall on September 16 and September 18, respectively. Dia de la Raza also falls within this month, on October 12. Hispanic Americans have been integral to the prosperity of the U.S. and their contributions to our nation are immeasurable.

Native American Heritage Month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. It is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.
