Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month!
Lexi Zimmerman, Redwood Room Assistant Teacher at 45th Street
Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated annually in the United States from September 15th through October 15th. This time period is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for many Latin American countries, as well as for Mexico and Chile. During Hispanic Heritage Month, Elementary and Middle School students at Aaron School recognize, learn about, and honor the rich culture and important contributions of people from Latin American and Spanish descent.
Elementary and Middle School students recently participated in a fun project that involved researching one of the countries celebrating their Independence Day during Hispanic Heritage Month. They worked individually or in small groups to create informational brochures about the country of their choosing. These brochures highlight the beautiful and unique aspects of each country while paying tribute to generations of Hispanic Americans that have positively enriched our nation.
We love celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with our students and faculty members, and look forward to learning more about a variety of people and cultures throughout the school year.
