Mark your calendars Cougars, because Spirit Days are coming!!! Next week we kick off Unified Week, hosted by our very own Unified Club.

Monday, May 23 is Camo Day. Wear camouflage as a reminder that not all disabilities can be seen.

Tuesday, May 24 is Awareness Day. Wear colors that represent a cause that is important to you. For example, wear blue for autism awareness, green for mental health, pink for breast cancer, ...you get the idea. Also, if you want to raise awareness about your cause, reach out to Mrs. Holmes or Mrs. Ohlde to ask about hosting a booth during our awareness fair.

May 25 is We Are One Wednesday. Let's unite by wearing our CJH blue and white.

And on Thursday, May 26 wear Tie Dye to represent diversity and inclusion.

We wrap Unified Week with our annual Unified Kickball Game. We hope you will join us.

In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, CJH will be hosting Culture Day on May 31. We invite everyone to wear clothing that represents your culture. Also on this day we invite you to join us in the PAC for a special cultural performance hosted by our AAPI students. It's an event you don't want to miss!

Speaking of AAPI Heritage Month, did you know that prior to 1942, roughly 30% of students in the Fife School District were Japanese Americans? In fact, of the 66 students in the Fife High School graduating class of 1942, 21 students were of Japanese descent. During that time Fife had a rich cross-cultural history of the Puyallup, Scandinavian, Swiss, German, Polish, and Japanese Americans. However, all that changed in 1942 after Pearl Harbor when just weeks away from graduation, Japanese families in the area were rounded up and sent to internment camps. Before they departed, Fife High School held an impromptu graduation ceremony for Japanese American students in the class of 1942 - minus their actual diplomas. 60 years later, those same students would be invited to attend a REAL graduation ceremony alongside Fife High School's graduating class of 2002. You can learn more about Fife's rich Japanese history by visiting the Fife History museum or watching the video documentary called With Honors Denied by Mimi Gan.
