Celebrating Asian Heritage Month!

Whew! I don’t know about you, but for me, April just FLEW by. I can’t believe it’s already May. (Btw, did you celebrate Star Wars Day yesterday? I sure did! Pew pew pew!)

Maybe April went by so fast because of all the writing I did for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. If you followed my posts, I hope you learned some neat things about Canada. If you missed out, you can scroll through the archives, starting with the letter A here. (And I’m sure, as we get closer to Canada’s 150th birthday celebration, I’ll be linking to those posts throughout the summer.)

The Blogging from A to Z Challenge may be over, but that doesn’t mean we should stop learning about Canada, right? Since January, I’ve written about all kinds of Canadiana—from Chinese New Year’s celebrations to Black History Month, a number of special days and events, and everything in-between. It’s helping me to learn about all of the different cultures that make up our very diverse country—and I believe that is important. 

Did you know that May is Asian Heritage Month? This annual tribute is a time to acknowledge the long and rich history of Asian Canadians and their contributions to our great country. Mrs. Kratky, my Language Arts teacher. says we’ll be doing some writing projects throughout the month to celebrate, but I’m also excited to hear real stories from some of my fellow Asian students and their families.

Check the events calendar in your area—what activities or events are planned? I already missed a Playwriting Workshop by author Marty Chan (darn!), but I’ll be looking for other great opportunities for sure. You should too!

Gotta jet. Have a great weekend—and see you next Friday!
