There are over 30 million Hispanics who call the United States home. Surely, Hispanics have done many things to improve our country, and to acknowledge their contributions, the U.S dedicated a whole month to celebrate Hispanics starting on September 15th and ending on October 15th . Palm Springs celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month last Friday, and let me tell you this: It was a lot of fun!
Students brought food that reflected their culture, for example: arroz con frijoles, tacos, empanadas, pie, et cetera, so it was very diverse. I bet many students learned something about other cultures by the end of the day. Hispanic music was played in the classes; students enjoyed Prince Royce, Enrique Iglesias, Shakira, and many others. Even some of the teachers, danced! After the day was over, I heard some of my classmates still talking about how fun the day was, and I have to agree!
Hispanic Heritage may be over for this year in Palm Springs Middle, but the spirit and pride of Hispanic culture will never fade.
