Lunches or Lack Thereof

We have had an influx of students coming to the front desk and either not having a lunch at all or having very little. Our emergency lunch supplies (personally purchased by a parent) are nearly depleted.

Did You Know?

With a population of over 121 million people who speak Spanish, Mexico is geographically the largest Spanish-speaking country. With nearly 53 million people, the United States is home to the globe's second-largest Spanish-speaking population, followed by Colombia, Spain and Argentina. Each country is home to an array of Spanish dialects – the dialect spoken in Buenos Aires, Argentina, for example, is vastly different from the local dialect of certain Patagonian villages.
