    celebrating hispanic heritage month

    Beginning on September 15, and continuing through to October 15, we recognize National Hispanic Heritage Month. During the four weeks, celebrations honor the heritage and contributions made by members of the Hispanic community. President Lyndon Johnson first declared Hispanic Heritage Week in September of 1968. Years later, in 1988, U.S. Rep. Esteban Torres (D-California) introduced legislation to expand Hispanic Heritage Week into a full month. Festivities begin on September 15, marking the anniversary of independence for the Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. With great fanfare, celebrations sweep across Latin America, Central American, and on into Mexico commemorating each country’s independence from week to week!

    Even if you don't consider yourself Hispanic, Latino, or Latinx, you can still seize the opportunity to learn more about the cultures of the 21 Spanish-speaking countries and territories honored during these four weeks. And with plenty of activities to choose from, you can have lots of fun while doing so. While much of the communal revelry was limited to virtual events in 2020 amid the pandemic, more communities will likely throw a proper fiesta in 2021. Whether you're gearing up to celebrate with friends and family or you prefer to keep it low-key this year, here are 12 festive Hispanic Heritage Month activities to try.

    Tuesday is Early dismissal @ 1:35 pm

    Parents, this is just a reminder that students are dismissed at 1:35 pm EVERY Tuesday of the school year.  Today is the FIRST Tuesday, so please plan accordingly.

    Thank you.

    volunteer program 2021-22

    The volunteer program in place prior to the start of the pandemic will resume in the new school year and will follow the District's COVID-19 safety protocols. This means approved volunteers will return to campus or can continue as virtual volunteers. We greatly missed volunteers and look forward to supporting their return.

    Please see the resources below for detailed information.  As always, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the main office.
