PAST EVENTS FROM 2018

2018 Hispanic Heritage Month Kick-off Fiesta!

Help us celebrate our diversity while enjoying delicious food and traditional Mexican folk dancing.

On Thursday, September 13 at 11:55 am, the PTA will host Hispanic Heritage Month Kick-off Fiesta. This event is being held instead of the annual Cinco de Mayo Celebration that was previously held in May.

We have found that May has so many other Bubb events (Gold Rush, Williams Bubb, Teacher Appreciation Week) and field trips that celebrating Cinco de Mayo often conflicted with these activities. We hope Hispanic Heritage Month Fiesta will start each school year in a fun, festive way without conflicting with other Bubb activities.

This year's fiesta will include:

The event takes place at Bubb from 11:55 am to 2:00 pm on the Bubb blacktop.

We need lots of volunteers before during and after the event to ensure it is a success. Please sign-up on Konstella now.

What is 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.

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.

nuevo para 2018:

!Fiesta inaugural del Mes de la Herencia Hispana!

Ayúdanos a celebrar nuestra diversidad mientras disfrutamos de comida deliciosa y baile folkloriko tradicional de México.

Este jueves, 13 de septiembre a las 11:55 am, el PTA estará llevando a cabo la fiesta inauguración del mes de la hispanidad. Este evento será en vez de nuestra celebración anual del 5 de mayo que se llevo a cabo este pasado mes de mayo.

Nos dimos cuenta de que había muchos eventos en Bubb (Gold Rush, Williams Bubb, semana de apreciación de los maestros) y paseos que hacían que seguido hubiese conflicto con la celebración del 5 de mayo. Esperamos que al comenzar nuestra fiesta de inauguración del mes de la hispanidad sea divertida, y una manera festiva para comenzar el año escolar sin conflictos de otras actividades en Bubb.

Esta fiesta incluirá:

  • Tacos Quiero Mas estarán sirviendo quesadillas frescas y tacos
  • Tamales hechos en casa para disfrutar en Bubb o llevar a casa para compartir con la familia.
  • Ballet folklorico mexicano, el Grupo Folklorico Los Laureles
  • Un mariachi tradicional, Mariachi Tapatío

Este evento se llevará a cabo en Bubb de 11:55 am a 2:00 pm.

Necesitamos muchas manos voluntarias antes y durante el evento para asegurarnos que todo sea un éxito. Por favor registrese en Konstella.

¿Qué es el mes de la hispanidad?

Cada año, los americanos reconocen el mes de la hispanidad nacional del 15 de septiembre al 15 de octubre, al celebrar sus historias, culturas y contribuciones de ciudadanos americanos que sus ancestros vinieron de España, México, el Caribe, y Centro y Sudamérica. Esta celebración comenzó en 1968 cuando se reconocía la Herencia Hispana por una semana bajo el presidente Lyndon Johnson y después fue expandido a una celebración de 30 días por el presidente Ronald Reagan en 1988.

El día 15 de septiembre es significativo porque es el aniversario de la independencia de países de Latino América: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras y Nicaragua. En adición, México y Chile celebran su independencia el día 16 de septiembre y 18 de septiembre, respectivamente. También el día de Cristóbal Colon o el día de la Raza, es celebrado el día 12 de octubre, que hace este periodo sea de 30 días.
