Hispanic heritage month

Hispanic Heritage Month
National Hispanic Heritage Month is a national recognition of the culture, contributions, and heritage of Hispanic Americans. The annual observance is now a 31-day period beginning Sept. 15 and ending Oct. 15. The September-October period covers a wide range of Independence Days for Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua celebrate their independence Sept. 15; Mexico celebrates its independence Sept. 16 and Chile Sept. 18. El Día de la Raza (Columbus Day) is observed Oct. 12, by all countries and people of Hispanic background.

Throughout the month, Sun Blaze students will be working on projects and learning about influential Hispanic leaders from Florida. We are excited to celebrate this month as a school and community!
