What is Hispanic Heritage Month?
Hispanic Heritage Month is recognized from September 15-October 15 and celebrates the history, culture, and contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans in the United States.
Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month allows children to be informed and proud of their culture! It’s important for Latino and Hispanic children to see themselves reflected in the history of our country allowing them to create a connection between past and present. This also gets Latino and Hispanic children thinking about how they can make a difference themselves!
