Dear Parents,
 
Today, Maestra Kogan (our Spanish teacher) led us in a wonderful celebration of Mexico’s Independence Day. She received additional support from Jackie Rossero. The experience for our entire community included food, music and dance. Maestra Kogan, a native of Mexico City, brings wonderful cultural experiences from her own tradition to our school.
 
On a related note… As you know, our week of festivities with our Northern Cheyenne community begins on September 26th. Here are a few key dates that include experiences for you to participate:

The first ever City of Akron North American Frist People’s Day Walk on October 1st at 1:00 will begin at Portage Path CLC in Highland Square. This new day of recognition in Akron is the result of our students’ and tribal members’ testimonies at Akron City Council last year. It will be a historic moment for the city of Akron and our school.
 
Shabbat Shalom.
Have a great weekend,
Sam
