The Mendoza Elementary B.R.I.C.K. Academy

HH 2013

The BRICKsters worked hard to memorize and perform a series of events for Hispanic Heritage Month. First, they learned about the life and work of Cesar ┬áChavez and how he was able to organize the Migrant Farm Workers to gain rights and better living and working conditions. Next, they learned “El Jarabe Tapatio,” which is a traditional Mexican Dance. After that, Roberto Clemente came center stage as his incredible life story was told. “La Llorona” followed as the BRICKsters told the story in English and Spanish! The presentation concluded with an interpretation of the the Battle of the Alamo and an encore of “El Jarabe Tapatio.” The night ended with a fantastic evening of wonderful food prepared by the parents of the BRICKsters. All the hard work and dedication to excellence was showcased on this night.
