National Hispanic Heritage Month
Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402. The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Día de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period.

Your child will need a binder to keep throughout the school year. Please ensure once your child learns how to set up their binder that they take good care of it and keep it in good condition as it will need to last all year long. The purpose of the binder is to help with organization, which is a skill that will begin to prepare our students for college and careers. It is also a form of communication between parents and teachers.
There will be a binder checklist (rubric) from the teacher. The binder will have important information from school or the classroom, homework, graded projects, planners (provided by the school), etc. It will also need a zipper pocket where you can also include notes, lunch money, etc. This binder must go home each night and return to school each morning. Please discuss the importance of of your child being responsible to take care of the binder and taking it to and from school.
Binder Supply List (requirement)
3 inch binder with pocket inserts (any color)
7 tab subject dividers (teachers will decide what goes behind each divider)
Zipper pouch (preferably with holes)
Notebook paper (wide rule)
Planners (the school will only provide one planner per student)
Only 1 binder is needed and will be used for all 7 classes.
Please ensure that you purchase the supplies for the binder, check in with your scholar daily, and establish an open line of communication with your student's teachers.
