Northwest Academy and D.I.C.E. strive to celebrate all the many heritages that make up our community. 

Heritage Months is a time within the year that are designated to celebrate and acknowledge various ethnic and marginalized (equity seeking) groups. Although they are meant to bring attention to the many contributions willingly and unwillingly given to the world we know today, they are also a time for others who may not identify to learn from another perspective/experience that may change how they see the world and themselves. Heritage Months aren’t just for continuing conversations in the classroom; it is for thinking about our worth larger than ourselves, a goal for the benefit of us and others. Supporting other's goals and doing something beyond ourselves is where we learn about different perspectives, what normal is to others, and a stronger ambition and tangible results for change come from.
