Our Longwood Elementary Counseling Enriched Classroom in Hayward celebrated Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage month with the Hayward Mayor!
On Friday May 12th, Mayor Mark Salinas came for a surprise visit to our 6th grade classroom to read the book The Ocean Calls: A Haenyeo Mermaid Story by Tina Cho, a Korean-American author. Mayor Salinas then took the time to speak to our students about diversity, inclusion, and acceptance and AAPI Heritage month. He also encouraged students to ask questions about what it is like begin the mayor, took pictures, gave autographs, and provided motivation to our youth about their futures in education. It was an exciting and unexpected surprise that our Longwood staff and students will be talking about for a long time! Thanks for visiting us Mayor Salinas.
