  • Feliz día de la independencia On Friday, we celebrated the Mexican Day of Independence! It was a fabulous day! Students wore the colors of the Mexican flag or traditional Mexican garb. We had a parade around the school that culminated in a poem read by one of our 8th graders, the Grito de Dolores by our Alderman Cardenas, and the Mexican and American national anthems! We had a lot of fun!Special thanks to our parents who helped organize and participate and to Spry's Mexican Culture Committee!We created a photo album. If you attended, please upload your best photos so we can all remember this day.
