    National Grandparents Day (September 13, 2020)
    On the Sunday following Labor Day, National Grandparents Day honors the love only grandparents can provide. 
    Constitution Day (September 17, 2020)
    Constitution Day (also referred to as Citizenship Day) is a United States federal observance that commemorates the signing of the U.S. Constitution and honors those who have become U.S. citizens by coming of age or naturalization.. 
    Responsible Dog Ownership Day
    On the third Saturday in September, Responsible Dog Ownership Day reminds pet owners to make a promise to your furever friend. 
    National Punctuation Day
    National Punctuation Day commemorates all punctuation on September 24th. A period, a comma, a semicolon, a question mark and an exclamation point are examples of some of the punctuation used in writing. They separate sentences and their elements to clarify meaning.  Without them, meaning would be lost or up for interpretation.
    Math Storytelling Day
    On September 25th, Math Storytelling Day encourages everyone to tell stories through math. This is a day to appreciate all the ways math enhances our daily lives.
    National Johnny Appleseed Day
    On National Johnny Appleseed Day, we honor the man who made apple (and pear) trees grow heavy with the bounty of their fruit across most of this country.  On September 26, we commemorate the day of his birth and celebrate his legendary wit, wisdom and enduring story.  
     Hispanic Heritage Month
    National Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates and recognizes the contributions Hispanic Americans have made to American society and culture and honors five of our Central American neighbors who celebrate their independence in September. 
    National Sewing Month
    Sewing is an invaluable skill that everyone should learn. Whether it's just learning to sew a button on your jacket or making a new outfit, sewing is a skill worth learning and it involves a lot of math. We also saw how invaluable sewing skills were during the pandemic. Give it a try! You may find that you really like it.
