Celebrating Hispanic Heritage At New Horizons Elementary

New Horizons Elementary School is a hub for immersive experiences into the Hispanic and Latino culture. As the first elementary International Spanish Academy and a successful dual language program for the past 15 years, New Horizons dual language students are taught to be bilingual, biliterate and bicultural. In honor and celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, students participated in various activities throughout the school, including creating projects and displays for countries of Hispanic and Latino origin. Additionally, students wore ethnic traditional clothes to school and learned about each other’s cultures and customs. New Horizons offers students the ability to experience one another’s customs in an effort to increase understanding, acceptance and appreciation.
