Fort Worth ISD celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month
Dolores Huerta Elementary School will host a Hispanic Heritage Museum at the school, open Sept. 28 through Oct. 16.
The Board of Education will proclaim Hispanic Heritage Month in the Fort Worth ISD at the regularly scheduled board meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 22. The proclamation applauds the contributions that those of Hispanic heritage have provided Fort Worth ISD, the local community, the state of Texas, and the United States of America.
In addition to the formal proclamation, Fort Worth ISD is creating a montage of distinguished graduates who are community leaders for posting in the Video on Demand portion of the district website.
Dolores Huerta Elementary School is continuing a 20-year tradition with a school-wide museum for students, parents, and the community. The purpose of the museum is to display and showcase work created by our students in the areas of reading, writing, geography, history, and art in connection to National Hispanic Heritage Month.
The Hispanic Heritage Museum at Dolores Huerta Elementary School will be open during school hours from Sept. 28 through Oct. 16. All visitors will receive a complimentary brochure of all the classroom exhibits.
