¡VIVE LA VIDA! Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

Celebrate this month with us when we remember the Independence Days of several Latin American countries. In California, we have a rich history that began even before the Spanish settlers, but that has continued to enrich our lives through the art, language, music, food, culture, and a faternal sense of community in our Spanish-Speaking communities. We have several ideas and activities that we will share on a weekly basis that will make this month a special one so, ¡Vive la vida!

9/15/21
Share what you love most about your family traditions with your teachers and classmates.

Things to watch:

In the Heights (Red Box)
is a musical with music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and a book by Quiara Alegría Hudes. The story is set over the course of three days, involving characters in the largely Dominican neighborhood of Washington Heights in Upper Manhattan, New York City.

The Beauty and the Baker (Netflix)

Daniel Garcia is working in the family bakery and doing everything that his loving Cuban parents and siblings expect him to do, until his life changes unexpectedly on a wild Miami night with a chance encounter with Noa Hollander at a fancy restaurant. Noa is an international superstar, the daughter of a real estate magnate and a successful model, just out of a high-profile Hollywood relationship. Sparks fly between the two and the unlikely couple must decide whether to upend their lives to be together, pulling their families into an inevitable culture clash.

Fools Rush In (Prime video) PG-13
Two unlikely people end up falling in love inadvertently. As their relationship develops, the two realize how much their upbringing in language, religion, culture, and family clash! Tons of laughs as they poke fun at each other's differences.

Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway!

Karli Gordon and Jaine Lindsay of the Pomona Valley National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) reached out recently to Mr. TeDese Ross to offer turkeys and meals to families of our students at Canyon Oaks High School. Mr. David Duisberg, Mr. Randy Medina and Mr. Calvin McKendrick set out with Mr. Ross on Tuesday, November 24 to distribute the generous donations from NCNW. NCNW is a historic civil rights organization committed to advancing opportunities and improving the quality of life for African American women. NCNW’s mission is to lead, develop, and advocate for women of African descent as they support their families and communities. However, they spread their mission and purpose far beyond those directly associated with their charter. On behalf of the entire Mountain Lion Pride , we would like to thank Mrs. Gordon and Mrs. Lindsay!
