The Hispanic Youth Leadership Council honored the cultures and traditions of Dia de los Muertos by planning and hosting an event November 2. It was a collaboration between ELA, Spanish, and AVID classes. Students made sugar skulls, learned about the significance of the ofrenda, and went on a scavenger hunt. At the end, students enjoyed pan de muerto and Mexican hot chocolate. Our HYLC students, colleagues, and families donated resources and many hours to make this event a success. It was awesome to see students have the opportunity to collaborate, lead, and develop an appreciation for different cultures. I’m proud of the creativity, curiosity, and compassion of our young people. They give me hope.
Literacy Push I would like to share a positive student experience that occurred today in a push towards improving student literacy. Today, Jamey Olney, Yulissa Tafolla, and 20 Glick students walked to the Empire Library, where they received a guided tour of the library and were issued library cards. When arriving at the Library, many students did not even know the library was there or existed. After the guided tour, students were able to walk around and check out books. The students were visibly excited to have access to checking out books. The students also received a book bag and had the choice to receive a book for free. I like to applaud the efforts of Mrs. Onley for doing her best to support the growth of her students in literacy as well as offering them the opportunity to learn more about their community and what it has to offer.
