A Note From Our Principal
Thank you all for helping our school celebrate Earth Day. Together, students at our school released over 5000 ladybugs! Celebrating Earth Day provided our teachers with many opportunities to relate science, math and literacy concepts to everyday life. As we move into May, we are getting our classrooms ready for a summer of additional enrichment. We can’t wait to spend summer with you and your children!

May 5th—Cinco De Mayo and Mexican Culture
We celebrate Cinco De Mayo in celebration of Mexican heritage. It commemorates the date of the Mexican army’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. It is also known as Battle of Puebla Day (Source: https://www.hfcc.edu/news/2020/what-cinco-de-mayo-means).
Today, students will explore the child-friendly works of Mexican folk-art by Frida Kahlo such as “Viva La Vida Watermelons” , “Magnolias”, and “Self-Portrait”.
Also, the meaning of the colors on the Mexican flag, Mariachi music, the Jarabe dance, several Spanish greetings/ vocabulary words along with our Spanish curriculum, and the actual meaning of Cinco De Mayo.
