As a dual language immersion school, we strive to educate our students about world cultures. The month of September is a dedicated time to celebrate Hispanic and Latino Americans heritage and culture. Paseo Pointe School, along with the PTA, hosted a number of activities and events during this month.

A bulletin board contest was held to highlight the many Spanish-speaking countries in the world. Classrooms decorated the hallway bulletin boards with information on the selected countries. Families then had an opportunity to judge the boards at the PTA’s Family Night. Winners were:

  • 1st Place — Nicaragua (Ashley Perez’s preschool class)
  • 2nd Place — Chile (Christine Iwinski’s 3rd Grade class)
  • 3rd Place —Dominican Republic (Lindsay Delgado’s 4th grade class).

A Hispanic Heritage Parade was also held with students representing their assigned country.
