As part of Hispanic Heritage Month, students at Phillips Avenue Elementary School participated in a schoolwide celebration on Oct. 27. 

As part of the event, students learned more about Spanish-speaking countries by taking a “walking tour” of Columbia, Costa Rica, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Spain and Venezuela.  

The tour featured hallway displays of each country created by several classes, as well as pre-recorded performances. Students were also each given a “passport” that they used to write notes about what they learned during the tour.
