Fiesta Latina

Our annual Fiesta Latina brought our families, students, staff and friends together to uplift and celebrate the contributions, talents, cultures, and achievements of community members who are from or whose ancestors are from Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America. This year's theme was Latinos: driving Prosperity, Power & Progress in America. The night featured performances, food, table displays, and so much more.

A huge thank you to our student, family and staff volunteers who dedicated their time and talents to this annual tradition.
