On Oct. 2, Northwest held its annual Hispanic Heritage Celebration. The well-attended event featured a brief history of the influence of Hispanic-Americans, traditional Mexican dancing from Ballet Folklorico, and a wide array of delicious dishes spanning several Latin American countries.

The event was made possible by staff members of the Hispanic Heritage Committee of Northwest, the helpful members of Ballet Folklorico (including Susanne Pena, coordinator of ESL, bilingual and world languages), the members of central office and the Board of Education, all of whom attended the evening. All engaged students and families in attendance made the experience memorable as well.
