Happy Cinco de Mayo!
Cinco de Mayo celebrates a victory by the Mexican Army over the French Army in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Today, Mexicans all over the world celebrate this victory. At PS4, Mexican students shared their culture and pride with their classmates. Omar N. (class 101) showed his pride by carrying a Mexican flag. Michelle H. and Alex G. (521) couldn't wait to go home to begin the celebration. "My family goes to my aunts house", explains Michelle, "and we'll dance and eat tamales and rice and beans".
