Third Grade Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

Rainwater third graders performed “A Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration!” Thursday, October 19, in the afternoon and evening. The performance focused on music that highlights Hispanic culture through dance, games, playing instruments and singing. The songs selected for singing were originally written or performed by Americans of Hispanic descent, including Richie Valens, Selena Quintanilla Perez, and Germaine Franco. Music teacher Cathy Lopez said, “I wanted to focus on the people of Hispanic heritage who have made a big impact in the music world, as well as celebrate the Hispanic culture.”
