Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15th through October 15th. We celebrate the history, culture and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. The day of September 15th is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period.
We at the North Bergen School District are very proud of the accomplishments of our students who are of Hispanic heritage. Additionally, we celebrate the many staff members and their contributions to educating our children. Our children can aspire to be an entrepreneur (, athlete (Roberto Clemente), journalist (Ruben Salazar), explorer (Ellen Ochoa, Astronaut), entertainer (Gloria Estefan) or Supreme Court Justice (Sonia Sotomayor).
OUR SCHOOLS WORK BEST WHEN WE WORK TOGETHER WITH PARENTS, TEACHERS, AND CHILDREN.
