Hispanic Heritage Month (September) - Did you know that Hispanic Heritage Month actually begins on September 15 and began as the anniversary of independence for five Latin American countries—Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua? In addition, Mexico declared its independence on September 16, and Chile on September 18. Stopping to recognize and celebrate students and families in our community with Hispanic backgrounds as well as the contributions of this important group of people, is important.Part of my background is El Salvadorian and I can still vividly recall my El Salvadorian great grandmother, Tina Harrison, who crossed the border from El Salvador during a very difficult period of time. Heroic stories like hers are not uncommon where we live. We need just ask.
Buddy Classes - Each year we pair teachers together and students are provided buddies. Your children may have already shared this but if not, ask them to share who their buddy is and what class he/she is from. They attend assemblies together and sit next to one another, work on projects and play together. Our goal is specific and clear: Support one of our overarching visions, building a social network within our learning community to support student connectivity. We believe strongly that this will lead to an increase in student happiness, which in turn leads to academic and social success.
