Hispanic Heritage Month
  • National Hispanic Heritage Month traditionally honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries. During this month and throughout the year, Detroit Public Schools Community District recognizes and celebrates our students,  staff, and community members who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Spanish-speaking nations of the Caribbean. Let's share history, heritage, and accomplishments of Hispanic and Latino Americans of past and present. 

    This month let's share history, heritage, and accomplishments of Hispanic and Latino Americans of past and present. We are proud to honor their heritage through the District-wide Hispanic Heritage Month Project.  This year’s theme is “The Fabrics that Weave us Together.” Students will conduct research to learn about traditional dress and current fashion designers.  Through this research study, students will create a picture or other artistic project (No Videos) to highlight traditional Hispanic garments or Hispanic designersPlease submit all projects by October 13, 2021 to Audry Hawkins audry.hawkins@detroitk12.org or Lucille Shaw lucille.shaw@detroitk12.org
