This year’s AAPI Heritage Month theme designated by the Federal Asian Pacific American Council (FAPAC) is “Advancing Leaders Through Collaboration.” Burke’s celebrates Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month in the classroom and on campus in a variety of ways.
The second graders began exploring women that have made a difference such as Jane Goodall, Katherine Johnson, and Mae Jemison. Last week, they focused on women in space and ended the week with a special visitor–Greta Studier from NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Burke's mission is to educate, encourage and empower girls. Our school combines academic excellence with an appreciation for childhood so that students thrive as learners, develop a strong sense of self, contribute to community, and fulfill their potential, now and throughout life.
