Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence days during this period and Columbus Day (Día de la Raza) is October 12. The term Hispanic or Latino, refers to Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race.

Spectacular Work Voyagers! You all did a phenomenal job on our Back to School Night Event yesterday, Everyone worked hard and came together as a team to make the building glow with community warmth.

Ms. Hernandez, Sumac's very own full time school counselor, delivers informative and engaging lessons to students in every grade. Last week and this coming week, Ms. Hernandez reviews with students who she is, her role, and how she can help. She also reviews when students may need help from the counselor and how to ask a teacher to plan a visit. Parents can seek help from the counselor as well. Remember Ms. Hernandez is here to help! We are grateful to have such a talented and enthusiastic educator on our support team.
