Hispanic Heritage Month

We want to welcome you and your student(s) to our 2nd Annual Hispanic Heritage Festival on September 21st from 4-6 pm which will take place outside of the Elementary and Middle school. We will be having food, music, dance and arts/crafts. This is designed for all school aged children (elementary/middle and high school). This is put on entirely by the Spanish III and IV class students. Please show your support for their hard work! We look forward to celebrating the rich and unique heritage that makes up our wonderful country. There will be some restaurant gift card door prizes for those who check in and get a raffle ticket (you have to be present to win). ¡VAMOS A CELEBRAR!


We still need your help! If you are willing and able to support our event, we would greatly appreciate it! We currently still need several foods, and we have included a sign up below. We are looking at about 100 people to feed, but there will also be a food truck available. Any and all donations welcome!
