Guest Speaker at the Middle School details Mexican Holidays
On Monday, December 19th, 2016, the SAS Middle School hosted a wonderful guest speaker as a part of our program of culturally infused lessons. Mr. Paco Valle spoke about the Mexican culture and celebrations surrounding the holidays of the year. He detailed the many important holidays of the Mexican culture. Mr. Valle detailed the background of Las Fiestas Del Mexico (The Mexican Celebrations), Mexican Independence Day (September 16th), Dia de los Muertos (November 2nd), Los Dia De Las Reyes (The Day of the Kings or The Epiphany), as well as Christmas and New Years from his cultural perspective. Students finished the session with each pulling a strong on a piñata for a wonderful treat! One of the powerful aspects of our population here at the Syracuse Academy of Science is our diverse population. This program and the amazing guests that we host is our way of celebrating that diversity! Thank you Mr. Valle for bringing your amazing experiences to our school!
