Hispanic Heritage Month flies in at Rocky Mountain
Students in English Language Development at Rocky Mountain Elementary have been learning about the Language of Explain through exploring arts and culture of prominent Hispanic figures. A few people they studied are Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, whose art provides a window into Hispanic culture. Honoring Frida Kahlo's famous quote "Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly", multilingual students designed and created a piece of a wing to represent what Hispanic Culture means to them. The ELD team at Rocky Mountain collaborated to create the beautiful mural in front of the library for all to see as they enter the building, and to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. Thank you Melissa Jennings, Janell Martinez, Elba Brosious, and Alma Aguirre for all you do for our Multilingual Learners at RME!
