Immaculata middle school students have been working on a research project covering different areas of the Hispanic culture, and the younger grades have been learning facts and information about the Hispanic world since September 15 in preparation for the Catholic School’s Hispanic Heritage Week, which began Monday. They’ve learned songs, played games and made crafts that will all culminate in a large, interactive exhibit tomorrow in their fellowship hall.
The students will have the opportunities to taste quesadillas and tropical drinks at the food booths, dress in traditional outfits, practice typical Latin American dances, take virtual tours of different Spanish-speaking countries, explore general artifacts, play bingo and more.
“With nearly 40 percent of its school population members of minorities, Immaculata Catholic School experiences every day the richness that results from embracing a diverse community,” Immaculata’s Lari Hatley said in an email. “Their Hispanic Heritage Month celebration is an example of that.”
