Mrs. Williams’ Spanish 1 and 2 classes will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo on May 5. “Cinco de Mayo” in English is translated as the “fifth of May”. This holiday is a day of celebrating a time when Mexican forces fought valiantly against the French, who invaded Veracruz–eventually marching toward Mexico City. The celebration marks the date of May 5, when poorly armed Mexican troops were able to defeat the French invaders. Cinco de Mayo is celebrated all throughout Mexico and is celebrated in many parts of the United States, especially schools! Here, at Chisholm High School, Mrs. Williams has headed the celebration in her classroom, focusing on the celebration of Mexican Americans. Her students will be encouraged to dress-up; she also asks other students to celebrate as well! The class will have a taco bar, très leches cake, and games as well: (bags, relay races, and egg races). 

Students in these classes have been working hard lately decorating many things from pinatas (using papel picado–or paper mache) to posting information and celebratory decoration on bulletin boards. 

Thank you students for working hard to show the school your artistic endeavors celebrating Cinco de Mayo! Also, ¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
