Great Job for Hispanic Heritage Month!

Bienvenidos a mi pagina para espanol.

Welcome to my post (page) for Spanish.

5th to 8th grades did a great job in dressing as famous Hispanic figures.

Frida Kahlo, Dali, Queen Isabella, Roberto Clemente, SCJ Sonia Sotomayor and so many more came to class that day and others did it remotely.

For the next 5 classes we’re doing a reading selection

and facts about the celebrations surrounding El Dia de Los Santos y El Dia de Los Muertos.

Stay safe, saludable, y siempre alegre,

Senora Rita Mourino Brennan

As grade increases, so should the rigor.  This project will count as a test. You will be quizzed also in your knowledge.

Please don’t download the facts. There have been scientific studies that show writing helps the learning process.
