Polk Street School third graders are currently learning about Mexico in their social studies lessons. To share what they’ve learned so far, families were invited to the small gym for a fiesta celebration on May 19.

Students shared facts about Mexico that correlated with the alphabet, such as “G” for geography facts and “N” for New Spain, which Mexico was once called. Some of the presentations were done in both English and Spanish. They then performed the Mexican folk dance, La Raspa. Following the students’ performance, families were invited to join in the dance together.

The third graders prepared for the event for approximately three weeks, reading “Mexico from A to Z” and creating artwork to decorate the small gym. This celebration is held annually.
