Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15th through October 15th. Here at Pine Village, Hispanic heritage is celebrated all year, but during this month, every Pine Village school will highlight the food, customs, and unique characteristics that are the foundation of our teachers lives. It is an opportunity to celebrate each of our teachers and directors, while they are able to share their background and heritage with each other, their students, and our entire Pine Village family.
Pine Village is proud to recognize and celebrate the many contributions, diverse cultures, and extensive histories of the Hispanic and Latino community. As a Spanish Immersion School, the Spanish language is the center of our program. We believe that learning another language is much more than just words. It gives us an opportunity to expose our children to all of the very rich cultures of the communities that speak the language we immerse ourselves in every day.
Here’s a few ways our classrooms are celebrating this month:
