National Hispanic Heritage Month

Date: 
Wednesday, September 15, 2021 to Friday, October 15, 2021

National Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of Americans of Spanish, Mexican, Caribbean, Central and South American descent. It also marks the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Mexico and Chile who celebrate their independence on 9/16 and 9/18. Schools throughout our district will be holding special activities and programs in honor of this month.

Celebrate with us on social media! We'd love to see your photo or video telling us: 

  1. why you are proud of your Hispanic heritage, and/or
  2. why it's important to celebrate diversity

Don't forget to use the hashtags #GISDCelebratesDiversity and #BetterTogether for a chance to be featured on @gisdnews, @gisdnoticias and @ChooseGarlandISD.
