DHHS Recognizes Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month
Spanish Club students, along with their advisor Ms. Gauley, created a special display throughout the halls of Hand in honor of Hispanic/Latinx Heritage month which runs from Sept. 15 – Oct. 15. Students each selected an object representing Hispanic/Latinx culture and wrote a brief explanation of its importance along with a drawing to display on the bulletin boards. Students then filled a display case full of cultural objects representing a variety of Latin American countries including Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Guatemala, and Argentina. On another bulletin board, students posted two photos for students and staff to guess where in the Spanish-speaking world you can find both the landmark and landscape. Prizes are being awarded to the top respondents for correct answers!
In front of the LMC, Spanish Club students, along with Mrs. Simos, decorated a creative display of Frida Kahlo, a famous Mexican artist, across various bulletin boards. The display continues inside the library where students and staff can discover various books all relating to Hispanic/Latinx culture. In your free time, please check out all the displays in celebration of Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month.
