Hispanic Heritage Month

Hight School Clubs and Organizations

Every year from September 15-October 15, we honor our ancestors from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America during Hispanic Heritage Month.

September 15 was chosen as the first day of Hispanic Heritage Month because it marks the anniversary of the independence of Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Mexico and Chile also celebrate their independence during this time period on September 16 and September 18.

To help honor this amazing culture, we are including some resources that you may want to investigate:

PBS Learning Media

Scholastic: Celebrate Hispanic Heritage

Hispanic Heritage Book Ideas

NEA: Hispanic Heritage Month

Teaching Central America

Teaching Tolerance: Latino Civil Rights Timeline
