Hispanic Heritage Month was from September 15-October 15. During this time, students and teachers did some great activities and projects to celebrate and appreciate Hispanic cultures and peoples. Below are some examples we wanted to share!

Art: K-3 Made Picasso-inspired faces in Spain, Amate bark paintings, and Huichol yarn paintings in Mexico.  Fourth – sixth made Boruca mask inspired by the Boruca people from Costa Rica

Music students in Kindergarten learned a new song to sing in Spanish!

1st Grade students did a pinata craft/writing project to go along with class celebration

Fourth Grade Students researched influential people who have made an impact around the world, especially in Hispanic Communities

Fifth Grade Social Studies students learned about the Day of the Dead

6th-8th Grade Media Students researched different Hispanic countries and made travel brochures on Canva or Adobe Express. Brochures emphasized on places to visit, culture, food, and traditions
