National Hispanic Heritage Month
By Jennifer Fogarty, communications content manager
Paying tribute to the contributions and influence of Hispanic and Latino Americans.
September 15 to October 15 is National Hispanic Heritage Month, which honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans. Generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched society are recognized for their efforts and accomplishments.
Hispanic refers to a person who is from, or a descendant of someone who is from, a Spanish-speaking country. Latino/a or Latinx refers to a person who is from, or a descendant of someone who is from, a country in Latin America.
Upper School AP Government students paid tribute to generations of influential Hispanics and Latinx Americans by researching and creating posters to display on campus. They also created a study guide for Lower School educators as a resource to create an age-appropriate curriculum. Each Lower School classroom received a unique Hispanic Heritage Month poster.
