Hispanic Heritage Celebration

Kindergarten students at Northeast School celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month with a musical performance for family and friends on Oct. 15.

In the weeks leading up to the celebration, teachers worked with students to research and create a poster about a famous Hispanic celebrity. In an effort to promote family participation, students and parents were asked to create a poster that represents their family heritage. These posters were put on display in the gymnasium for the performance and hung throughout the school building.

During the performance, kindergartners sang “Mi Cuerpo Hace Música” and “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” in Spanish and English. While showcasing their colorful poster, teachers and students from each class shared information about the Hispanic celebrity the class researched. To conclude the event, students performed a choreographed dance to the song “Danza Kuduro” by Don Omar.
