Join Us In Celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month September 15 – October 15Created on September 15th, 2022
Join us in celebrating our Hispanic and Latinx students, families, staff, and community members during National Hispanic Heritage Month!
Every year, the United States honors the history and legacy of Hispanic and Latinx people by observing National Hispanic Heritage Month. From September 15 to October 15, we celebrate the cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. National Hispanic Heritage Week was first recognized by President Lyndon Johnson in 1968 and expanded to 30 days by President Ronald Reagan in 1988. Ultimately, it was enacted into law on August 17, 1988.
There are many great resources to learn more about National Hispanic Heritage Month including this collection of documentaries and programs on PBS. We’d like to take time to recognize and honor our students and staff of Latinx descent. We’d also like to empower and educate our non Latinx students and staff surrounding the contributions and impact Latinx people made and continue to make in our community, state, nation, and world. We are #strongerwithU!
