At Kennedy High School, the World Languages department is recognizing Cinco de Mayo in a variety of ways.

Melissa Schickler’s Spanish classes collected nonrecyclable wrappers from tortillas, chips and other food products typically consumed for Cinco de Mayo; this coincides with a unit on the environment in her level 3 classes.

In John Reilly’s ninth-grade level 2 honors class, students have been working on cultural comparison projects about various celebrations in Spanish-speaking countries. Additionally, a presentation by Lindsey Moser and Sydney Schwinger focused on Cinco de Mayo.
“They included information about how Cinco de Mayo is celebrated in Mexico and made cultural comparisons to our Fourth of July holiday celebration,” explained Renée Fallon, World Languages chairperson.
