Gove Elementary celebrates Hispanic heritage

BELLE GLADE — The Palm Beach County School Board has proclaimed Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 as Hispanic Heritage Month. Throughout the month, the district’s schools and departments will celebrate the unique diversity and contributions of Hispanic and Latino culture.
At Gove Elementary, Mrs. Rand’s and Mrs. Castilla’s classes are working collaboratively on a Hispanic heritage poster. The poster portrays notable Hispanic Americans. Constructed by 34 students, the mural is made up of 45 individual pieces.

Special to the Lake Okeechobee News/Courtesy photo Mrs. Castilla and Mrs. Rand’s second-grade classes exhibit the first part of their Hispanic Heritage project.

Mrs. Castilla and Mrs. Rand will host their first annual Hispanic Heritage Celebration on Oct. 29. The students will be performing a Living Wax Museum. Each student is assigned a famous Hispanic person and will be performing a speech in English and Spanish. The celebration will also include music and cultural food donated by the parents. Kudos to Mrs. Rand and Mrs. Castilla for planning such an extraordinary activity for their students.
