#CelebrateWithDE – Hispanic Heritage Month

It’s Hispanic Heritage Month! We celebrate Hispanic heritage each year between September 15 – October 15, but do you know why this timeframe was selected? Make sure your students know some of the reasons we celebrate the histories, cultures, and contributions of Hispanic Americans: A number of independence days in Latin American countries, Mexico, and Chile, along with Día de la Raza all fall within these 30 days. Enjoy your celebrations throughout this month…and beyond!
