Inside the Classroom

 

 

Last Thursday, September 13th, our 8th graders had a guest speaker in Spanish class. Maestra Emma came to talk about Mexico’s Independence Day and how important that day is for all Mexicans! Students discovered how “Cinco de Mayo” is not so important because it was a day of battle for territory between France and Mexico 50 years after Mexico's independence. Maestra Emma is from the North part of Mexico and gave students a wonderful lesson about this special celebration. Maestra Maria invites 8th grade parents to ask students what new things they learned from their first cultural lesson. What does ¡Viva Mexico! mean and when is it said?
