Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated this year from September 15- October 15. Today, LMS students in Ms. Posner's Home Language Arts class took part in celebrating El Día De La Raza by walking the track with this purpose in mind. On October 12th many Spanish-speaking countries celebrate El Día De La Raza. This observance celebrates the birth of a new identify, which is the fusion of two cultures: that of the indigenous people from the Americas and that of the Spanish conquerors. It is a day to celebrate and commemorate Hispanic race and heritage.
