Celebrating Hispanic Heritage

National Hispanic Heritage Month, observed annually from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, honors the culture, heritage, and contributions of Hispanic Americans each year.

To recognize this heritage, Daniel Wright Spanish Teachers Erinn Vincent and Katie Snowden recently celebrated the holiday, Day of the Dead, by encouraging students to create Calaveras (skulls) out of cookies and balloons. The multi-day holiday is in honor and celebration of ancestors. Families use calaveras as one way to invite their loved ones who have passed on back into their homes for the Day of the Dead. Please visit the school's Google Doc folder to see more pictures of the celebration.
