Mexican Heritage Celebration

Our Mexican Heritage Celebration was a huge success!  With more than fifty parents attending a dance performance form the Calpulli Mexican Dance Company and a luncheon sponsored by the PTA, our school community was proud to celebrate the beautiful culture of Mexico.  "My students have heard me talk about how important it is to celebrate traditions from all over the world," said 4th grade teacher Ms. Marmolejos.  "This is a perfect connection to what we are all doing in our classrooms."

A very special thank you goes to the dancers of The Calpulli Mexican Dance Company who performed for more than five hundred students, teachers and guests. "I've worked for the Department of Education for more than 25 years and this is, by far, the best performance I've every seen," said Ms. Martin (Assistant Principal).  See the slide show below for photographs from our Mexican Heritage Celebration.  For more information about The Calpulli Mexican Dance Company, click here!
