On October 2, the FNE Dual Language held its first 2018 Dual Language Family Night celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month! Throughout the month, students learned about Hispanic men and women who have made great contributions to society and about the 21 Spanish speaking countries and cultural characteristics of each. Student-created art, biographies and informational writing filled the room for parents to enjoy. The Dual Language staff displayed traditional garments, toys and articles from Mexico, Puerto Rico and Panama. Ms. Irma Guerra, Director of Elementary Teaching and Learning, welcomed parents to the Dual Language family and explained more about the two-way immersion program FISD uses to enhance student learning. Parents had fun participating in teamwork activities and cultural riddles to the rhythm of amazing Hispanic music. The activities sparked great conversations between parents and teachers! It was a fun-filled night, kicking off an exciting year of learning!
