Northside Celebrates Hispanic Heritage
Northside Elementary teachers and students enjoyed experiencing Hispanic Heritage through a variety of activities.  First grade students performed in a program that featured songs sung in Spanish.  The program also highlighted famous Hispanic Americans, like Cesar Chavez and Sonia Sotomayor.  The library offered a hands-on display of books, ponchos and sombreros.  Students enjoyed activities in several of the classrooms that had crafts, games and treats from Hispanic cultures.  Getting to swing at a piñata was one of the students’ favorite activities.  Northside was especially thankful that many parents participated by bringing in delicious authentic dishes and dressed in authentic clothing that represented their Hispanic Heritage.
