John Neely Bryan Elementary’s Language Proficiency Assessment Committee organized a daylong event on May 4 to celebrate Cinco De Mayo with faculty, students and staff dressing in traditional Mexican attire.
Audiences were treated to morning and afternoon performances where the history of Cinco de Mayo was explained. Various grade levels performed typical Mexican folk dances. “La Raspa” was performed by pre-K students, “El Caballito de Palo” by Kindergarten students, and “El Cerro de la Silla” performed by first-grade students.
The grand finale of the program featured the fifth-grade students singing to “Mexico, Mexico” by Timbiriche.
The day’s festivities concluded with a schoolwide parade and a classroom nacho party.
