Kudos to all of our room parents who officially kicked off with their initial planning meeting last Monday.

Hispanic Heritage Month
This month we've been celebrating Hispanic Heritage. Students have learned about the winners of the Pura Belpre award during Spanish/Library class, made self-portraits in the style of Frida Kahlo during art class, have learned about Latino authors in the US, and many other lessons that acknowledge the contribution of Hispanic Americans and Latinos during this month of learning.
