In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 through Oct. 15), Spanish classes recognized and celebrated the heritage, culture, and legacy of Hispanic Americans and their invaluable contributions to our nation.
- Students in Mrs. Canisalez's Spanish 1 researched influential Hispanics that have made positive contributions to our culture. They created posters with positive quotes by influential Hispanics and presented multi-media PowerPoint presentations to their classmates.
- Students in Mrs. Canisalez's Spanish 2 researched Spanish-speaking countries and created windsock decorations representing each country's flag.
- Students in Mrs. Wessels and Mrs. Canisalez's classes danced salsa, mambo, and zumba on block days in the Café. They also created colorful Dia de los Muertos calavera posters and decorations.
- On Friday lunches during Hispanic Heritage Month, all students listened to popular Spanish music such as Enrique Iglesias, Gloria Estefan, Santana, Shakira, Juanes etc.
- Mrs. Jones had book displays in the library for Hispanic Heritage Month. They also made calaveras de azucar (sugar skulls) out of perler beads in honor of HH Month and Dia de los Muertos.
- Dr. Graner and the Liturgy Choir sang Spanish songs at our last all- school Mass. Senior Jacob Fries sang the verses to Digo “Sí", Señor (I Say “Yes,” My Lord) in Spanish. They also sang an Argentinian Santo for the Sanctus. Dr. Graner said she hoped to add a little Latin percussion for the songs in the future.
