Coppell ISD is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of Americans of Spanish, Mexican, Caribbean, Central and South American descent. It also marks the anniversary of independence of seven Latin American countries — Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico and Chile. Schools in CISD are celebrating this month via special lessons, exhibits, social studies lessons and more.
Coppell High School’s “First Chapter Friday” Sept. 18 was dedicated to “Poet X” by Elizabeth Acevedo in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. Many schools, including New Tech High @ Coppell, CMS West and Lakeside, Cottonwood Creek, Denton Creek, Town Center and Wilson Elementaries had library displays and encouraged students to read books by Hispanic authors during Hispanic Heritage Month.
CISD school librarians have provided lessons, resources and links to ebooks and audiobooks celebrating hispanic heritage, figures, characters and authors via Mackinvia on learner’s iPads.
