Reinhard students celebrated Mexican culture during the festive holiday of Cinco de Mayo. Foreign language teacher Lisa Goldberg organized the annual event and explained that the school’s Cinco de Mayo celebration was an opportune occasion to strengthen the students’ knowledge of the Spanish language.

During the day, students constructed and painted serapas, a Latin American shawl, out of paper bags. Rotating through four stations, the students honed their Spanish language skills through song and Latin dance, while playing Bingo, creating Mexican flags and reading about a Mexican boy’s day in school. The celebration commenced with a snack of chips and salsa.
