Students at Westhampton Beach Elementary School have been celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month through a wide variety of engaging activities that were organized by the school’s equity committee.

Each day during the month, students are sharing Spanish phrases and biographies of famous Latinos and Latinas over the school’s public address system and taking part in daily activities and challenges on a shared interactive digital calendar that can be accessed in their classrooms. Students have also been reading books and watching videos on the importance of Hispanic Heritage Month and the different cultures and traditions within Spanish-speaking countries. Additionally, classes are working together to research and create traditional Hispanic recipes that will be compiled into a schoolwide cookbook.
