Latino Heritage 2015


Latino Heritage Month was celebrated this week at G3.  A full house of family came to support our students in this very musical performance.  After the performances, the audience was invited to the art gallery outside of the theater.  Students created art inspired by the colorful Latino culture. Our second and third graders did such an amazing job at honoring the Latino heritage and culture. We would like to thank everyone that participated in this outstanding event.

 


 
In addition, our Pandaland and Mainland students celebrated the Latino culture in the form of dance. From classics to modern hits, the music was an exceptional selection that represented the diverse Latino heritage. The celebration culminated with the 5th grade class performing the traditional Mexican dance.
 


 

Did you know…

September 15 was chosen as the starting point for the celebration because it is the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. All declared independence in 1821.
