Hispanic Heritage Month

Learning about other cultures

Hispanic Heritage

National Hispanic Heritage Month is the period from September 15 to October 15 in the United States, when people recognize the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the group’s heritage and culture. At MSPCS we celebrate throughout the month by learning about different countries and their cultures. Each class learned about a specific country and performed songs and dances for the school. Students worked on various projects and gave many presentations. In addition to classroom work, Miss Jenny works with grades PK3 through 5th grade all month in Spanish class. Some projects and material from this year include:



PK3 & PK4:  Colombia
They learned a few facts about Colombia and learned the song ¨La Vaca Lola¨ as a class.
