Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.

As part of their celebration for Hispanic Heritage Month, our Timothy House students have created a variety of cultural projects in honor of this month. At the Timothy House Assembly last week, first graders creatively joined in the celebration by dancing to Bachata and learning how to say "Quiero se tu amigo," which means "I want to be your friend." Our second graders also interacted by dancing to the "America's Anthem" and marching with the flags of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, and Chile.

What a great example of cultural integration, Timothy House!

The article also speaks to the fact that Dwight is consistently proactive in immersing students in global connections, and enhancing our multicultural life in our community through engaging practices on a daily basis.
