Hispanic Heritage Month Begins September 15
This annual celebration of the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America, and South America begins on September 15. We're excited to celebrate the Hispanic heritage of hundreds of Avon students and staff!
Did you know that 675 Avon students speak Spanish as their primary language? That's:
- 32% of the students in Avon who receive English Language supports/monitoring and
- 6.6% of Avon's total population of 10,176 students.
School administrators and educators are planning some exciting celebrations and learning opportunities for our Hispanic students and their classmates in the coming month.
It's going to be 'una fiesta grandisima'!
