Students at the Little Falls Middle/High School got a chance to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15th through October 15th.

Alex Puznowski and Angely Ortega came up with the idea because they realized that there were a lot of Hispanic students in the school, and they had never celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month in the past.

“We chose one day that we could all be together and celebrate and have all of them feel proud of our heritage and culture, the language and food,” stated Puznowski.

Her College One Now students wanted to represent their culture as well, so they chose a topic that has influenced Americans.

Sports and some of the players from Latin America, music, pinatas, clothing, exotic animal replicas, and jewelry were displayed.

La Calavera Catrina made an appearance in person to paint faces.

“I want to do this every year. I want the students to be proud of where they come from,” she said.
