Lisha Kill students spent some time last week learning about notable members of the Hispanic/Latino/Latinx communities in recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month which runs from September 15 to October 15 annually. Students read simple biographies in Spanish on display boards learning facts about each person including their profession, where they were from, and more. Students received a BINGO card with descriptions in English that match the biographies on the displays. Students read and looked for matches on their BINGO cards. Three winners for each grade were selected. Winners received a restaurant gift card donated by Lisha Kill PTA.
“Our South Colonie community is strong and dynamic because of the contributions of every person,” said Lisha Kill Principal Lindsay Tresansky. “I am proud that our staff has found a fun and meaningful way to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month allowing our students to learn more about the legacy of many notable people who have inspired others to achieve success.”
