hispanic heritage month

LITTLE ROCK, Ark -- Joe T. Robinson High School and Lawson Elementary School celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month with help from the Pulaski County Special School District community. 

Hispanic Heritage Month honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries.

Students participated in themed lessons and presentations and viewed videos that were recorded by bilingual community partners discussing their experiences.

Joe T. Robinson High students learned about Hispanic and Latino culture, Hispanic American civil rights leaders, and Hispanic contributions to American culture during their Senator Study Advisory period.

Lawson Elementary students learned about Hispanic culture from local community members and the lessons featured videos created specifically for elementary students by Nickelodeon and Disney. The lessons in both mainstream and specialty classes focused on Hispanic culture, music, art, and language.
