We're at the end of our Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration!

We sold almost $1200 of pulseras to help communities in Nicaragua and Guatemala this year!  Thanks to the dozen students who showed up on September Saturdays to help!

We had 15 students help at the Beulah Hispanic Festival!

We are still teaching with the After School Progra at Holly Springs Elementary School and will continue through December 8.  There are 7-15 students active in this program!

Thanks to those who have helped all month with each activity.  Be sure you have all global service hours recorded and approved.

The LAST days of the celebration will be our FOOD DAYS this week on Thursday and Friday, Oct 13-14.  Remember to bring the recipe (la receta) and be able to give a general description of how the food was prepared.  Bring enough so each student in your class may sample a small portion of the dish.  You will be graded on effort, not on how 'delicioso' the dish turns out.
