Reinhard students immersed themselves in Mexican culture during the festive holiday of Cinco de Mayo. Foreign language teacher Lisa Goldberg explained that this festive celebration was an opportune time for students to strengthen their knowledge of the Spanish language and culture.

During the festivities, the students painted and constructed serapes, a Latin American shawl, out of paper bags. Rotating through stations, the students sang Spanish songs, played Bingo in Spanish, created Mexican flags and read about a boy’s typical day in a Mexican school. The celebration commenced with a snack of chips and salsa.
