Hispanic Heritage Month at WSS

Each year in the United States, we observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America.


At West Street School students and teachers celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month by doing different activities: in library, younger students listened to stories written by the Pura Belpre Award winners. 3rd through 5th grade students did the Famous Hispanic American biography match using library resources to perform the research. In music students learned songs in Spanish and in art class, students created a display featuring the Puerto Rican frog, "The Coqui".


On October 12, a group of parent volunteers helped Ms. Ortiz displayed artifacts from different Hispanic countries as well as flags, clothing, books, and food. Students enjoyed playing some of the musical instruments. Here is a sampling of photos from the day.
