IHM School Celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month

Spanish Instructors Sonia Morales-Matos and Ingrid Menendez-Sabla organized a celebration for National Hispanic Heritage Month at our parish school.  This month the school recognizes the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and also celebrates Hispanic culture. The celebration was held in the school gymnasium.

Sra. Morales-Matos arranged for the Son del Caribe band, of which she is a member, to play salsa and merengue for students.  Fourth and fifth graders held a parade with flags while simultaneously announcing fun facts about the Hispanic countries they chose. With students acting out the parts, stories were told in Spanish.  Kindergarten students performed dances with Sra. Morales-Paris for the celebration and she chose student volunteers from various grades to learn a new dance for the entertainment of everyone.
