From Ms. Vazquez - Spanish

The time has come to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month!


We want to invite you all to be part of the amazing activities we have planned for this year!

1) Hispanic Heritage Spirit Week: September 19th- 23rd


2) Door Decoration Contest: We invite you to add some color to "our house" by participating with your 1st-period class in decorating your doors! The theme is “Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation.". The theme encourages us to ensure that all voices are represented and welcomed to help build stronger communities and a stronger nation. There will be prizes for First, Second and Third Place. If you have an office, you are more than welcome to decorate your doors, too! There will be prizes for you, too! They will be judged on Friday, September 30th.


3) The ABCs of HHM Exhibition: In this exhibition, Latinos in Action students will share important facts about a Hispanic for each letter of the alphabet.


4) Wax Museum: Hispanic Heritage Exhibition: Thursday, October 6th from 9:00 am to 9:20 am in the courtyard. Yes! Wax Museum is back for the third year in a row, and I would love you to be part of it!


5) Spanish Spelling Bee: Friday, October 14th from 9:25 am to 12:30 pm. Please, help me spread the word!


Thank you in advance for all your support!!!!

Kindest Regards,

Maritza Vázquez Reboyras

From Ms. Erickson and Ms. Delgado

Here are a couple of pictures of an activity we did in seventh-grade math in Ms. Delgado's class.


It is a Kagan strategy called "Quiz Quiz Trade," and the students were reviewing changing decimals to percentages.

From Ms. Rawlings - Latinos In Action

In Latinos in Action, communication is key. We are learning how to communicate using the game, Headbands.
