North Branch Celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month

From September 15 to October 15, NBS students and Spanish teacher Oscar Cardenas celebrated National Hispanic Heritage month.  In class, students worked on greetings, personal information, and family vocabulary. Students also learned the song “El Tambor de la Alegria,” a song from Panama, and performed it at Assembly.

The culmination of the month’s work was a fiesta held on October 16, at which students danced salsa, bachata, and son cubano.  They also played “Pongale la cola al burro” (Pin the Tail on the Donkey), using decorations, pinatas, and pictures created by students.  Thanks very much to the NBS parents who helped with food and beverages for the fiesta.
