Hispanic Heritage Month

Let’s test your knowledge on this topic through trivia.

The trivia question for this week is “Why does Hispanic Heritage month start on the 15th of September?”

Go to the Spartan Mail in your email and access the form to answer the question.

HHM Trivia Form (9/28-9/29)

If you get the answer right, you can get a bracelet delivered to you during your first block next Thursday.

Besides trivia, we also have a scavenger hunt! There are Hispanic flags hidden throughout the school. If you find one, turn it into the Spanish Honor Society table near the vending machines TODAY or during any lunch shift on Fridays. You’ll receive a bracelet and a piece of candy in return!
