Tallahassee School of Math and Science Hosts Annual Hispanic Heritage Night
Students and staff at the Tallahassee School of Math and Science (TSMS) – a public charter school serving grades K-8 – gathered to celebrate Hispanic culture during the school’s Hispanic Heritage Night on Nov. 1.
The event kicked off with flute and guitar duo Syncopando giving the audience a musical performance. It was followed by a potluck meal of Hispanic food including salsa chicken, rice and beans, and several desserts, including two different types of homemade flan.
During the meal, attendees were treated to a student performance sung in Spanish, as well as a student-performed puppet show and a traditional Mexican dance. There also were musical instruments, artifacts and art on display.
TSMS prides itself on being a diverse and multicultural school, with students from many different nationalities represented in the student population. The school regularly holds social events such as Hispanic Heritage Night, allowing students to showcase their unique cultures with pride and connect with each other outside of school.
