Gulliver Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

By Stephanie Sanchez, Communications Specialist, PreK3-12

Festive hues of red, yellow and blue adorned the Academy courtyard as Gulliver celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month with a Hispanic Heritage Festival in October.

Boys and girls engaged with one another making various arts and crafts projects, going on a treasure hunt, making maracas out of water bottles and more. The Academy community learned about a variety of Spanish-speaking nations thanks to student-coded robots called Ozobots and used a chroma key to see the landscape of the different countries.

Students also put on their dancing shoes to move to the beat of Hispanic rhythms thanks to a live band, Gulliver's dance team and even their own teachers, some of whom dressed proudly to represent their Hispanic heritage. A delicious Argentinian parrillada (consisting of chorizo served on a soft baguette) was served, inspiring students to line up for a second helping.
