Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month
The Board of Education has proclaimed September 15 to October 15 as Hispanic Heritage Month. Throughout the month, MCPS schools will be celebrating the unique culture and traditions of students, teachers, staff and community members who trace their roots to Spain and other Spanish-speaking countries in North America, Central America, South America and the Caribbean.
Hispanics and Latinos are the fastest growing ethnic group in MCPS, with 32 percent of the student population, representing 21 Spanish-speaking countries.
We want all MCPS students, parents and staff to celebrate with us! Share a picture that represents your Hispanic/Latinx heritage and MCPS may feature it in a virtual gallery. Email pictures here, send them to The Bulletin, or share them on social media using #OrgulloHispano. Check out the Flickr gallery. Watch this video for more information.
