We kickoff our Latino Heritage Month Celebration on Friday, September 15 and continue through Friday, October 13, when our Latino Heritage Performances for families will take place.
We take the validation and affirmation of the collective Latino identities that contribute to the Hillcrest cultural mosaic very seriously. This month’s celebrations will evidence this. We have planned visits from mariachis who will serenade our scholars at lunchtime and folklorico dancers performing as part of our activities. We will host a fun and informative classroom door decorating contest to provide a meaningful and in-depth way for our scholars to learn about a Latino hero and/or heroine. And that's not all!
Stay tuned as Hillcrest celebrates Latino Heritage Month!
