Hispanic Heritage Cultural Tour
The 1st annual Hispanic Heritage Cultural Tour was a SUCCESS! Students enjoyed Antoni Gaudi-inspired art project led by the Washburn University Art Lab, Bilingual Storytime led by TPS’s own Dr. Pilar Mejía (Director of Cultural Innovation), Lalo Muñoz (Board of Education President), and Melanie Stuart-Campbell (Board of Education Member and author of the children’s book: Alba). We were also lucky enough to have a celebrity in our midst! Roger Ortega, Spotify-verified recording artist shared his inspiring story and performed for the students. Here is a link to his latest single for your listening pleasure! We are so grateful for those who came together to make this day happen for our students!
