Celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month

National Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to celebrate the histories, cultures and contributions of people from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.  Many Latin American countries celebrate their independence on September 15th including Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.  Mexican Independence day is celebrated on September 16th and Chile celebrates their independence on September 18th.   

EL students at Park Junior High are reading The Dreamer, a biography of the Chilean Nobel prize winning poet Pablo Neruda. 


“He who does not travel, who does not read, who does not listen to music, who does not find grace in himself, she who does not find grace in herself, dies slowly.”
-Pablo Neruda
