The Walker High School Spanish classes celebrated Cinco de Mayo today during the regular class periods. The students celebrated by playing traditional Spanish music, playing traditional Spanish games and tasting a variety of Spanish dishes. This annual celebration is one the students look forward to each year and Mrs. Whitaker and Mrs. Goetz work hard to make this learning activity especially fun for the students.
Cinco de Mayo is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War. Many people think May 5 is Mexico’s Independence Day but it is actually September 16! Today’s festivities included balloon games, hitting a piñata, and of course, lots of delicious Mexican food!
The Spanish Club party will be held today, right after school at Perico’s.
Free food for all Spanish Club members!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
