Dear Families,


Today is the first day of Hispanic Heritage Month.  Hispanic Heritage Month takes place between September 15 and October 15 as a time to recognize and celebrate the many contributions and diverse cultures, and extensive histories of the Latin American Community.  Next Thursday evening between 5:30-7:30 p.m. our school will be celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with a Dances of Mexico Family Night. We are excited to enjoy a pizza dinner and the wonderful culture of Mexico with you!
