National Hispanic Heritage Month was celebrated from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. The commemorate focused on the histories, cultures, and contributions of Hispanics communities. Cypress Creek High School acknowledged Hispanic Heritage Month by having posters set up on the walls of our building, having students speak about a Hispanic country each day, and setting small posters in the cafeteria to illustrate the background information about each country. 

“Honestly, it was really nice seeing all of the different Hispanic cultures being represented,” said senior Yebdiel Hernandez Estrada. “I loved how the school did the announcements to teach others about Hispanic countries and traditions,” added Hernandez Estrada. During Hispanic Heritage Month we recognize the achievements of Hispanic American champions who have inspired others to achieve success. Hispanic Heritage Month holds an enduring place in the hearts of many individuals around the world.  

“I think it’s very nice that they do an activity to represent Hispanics and to expand our culture and share it with other people, since it is very diverse,” said senior Lorena Villalona. United States culture has been enriched by the rhythms, art, literature and creativity of Hispanic people. Our deepest values have been knowledgeable by the love of family and faith that is at the core of so many Hispanic communities. Hispanics provide plethora of significance to the United States and anywhere they are. 

“I am from Colombia, specifically, I am from Cali, Colombia is in South America and in that country, there is a lot of diversity, flora, fauna, typical dishes, unbelievably delicious food and particularly good music, especially Salsa, Vallenato, and Cumbia,” said senior Nicoll Penagos. It is amazing the diverse cultures and customs each nation participates in, so outstanding how we Hispanics can be the same but so different at the same time. This honoring is especially important as Hispanics are a big part of the world. Education provides a valuable source of freedom that allows people to learn and find new ways to set goals, have a growth mindset, learn from experiences and practice new cultures. Hispanics provide many astonishing ideas for music, dances, entertainment, food recipes and sports.  

Senior Hernandez Estrada said, “I mean the foods, traditions, cultures, music, etc… there is much to love about being a Latino.” 

El Mes Nacional de la Herencia Hispana se celebró del 15 de septiembre al 15 de octubre. La conmemoración se centró en las historias, culturas y contribuciones de las comunidades hispanas. La Escuela Secundaria Cypress Creek reconoció el Mes de la Herencia Hispana colocando carteles en las paredes de nuestro edificio, haciendo que los estudiantes hablaran sobre un país hispano todos los días y colocando pequeños carteles en la cafetería para ilustrar la información general sobre cada país. 

“Honestamente, fue realmente agradable ver representadas todas las diferentes culturas hispanas”, dijo el estudiante de último año Yebdiel Hernández Estrada. “Me encantó cómo la escuela hizo los anuncios para enseñar a otros sobre los países y las tradiciones hispanas”, agregó Hernández Estrada. En el mes de la Herencia Hispana reconocemos los logros de los campeones hispanoamericanos que han inspirado a otros a alcanzar el éxito. El Mes de la Herencia Hispana ocupa un lugar perdurable en los corazones de muchas personas en todo el mundo. 

“Creo que es muy lindo que hagan una actividad para representar a los hispanos y expandir nuestra cultura y compartirla con otras personas, ya que es muy diversa”, dijo Lorena Villalona, ​​estudiante de último año. La cultura estadounidense se ha enriquecido con los ritmos, el arte, la literatura y la creatividad de los hispanos. Nuestros valores más profundos han sido reconocidos por el amor a la familia y la fe que es el centro de tantas comunidades hispanas. Los hispanos aportan una gran importancia a los Estados Unidos y a cualquier lugar donde se encuentren. 

“Soy de Colombia, específicamente, soy de Cali. Colombia está en Sudamérica y en ese país hay mucha diversidad, flora, fauna, platos típicos, comida increíblemente deliciosa y sobre todo buena música, especialmente Salsa, Vallenato y Cumbia”, dijo la estudiante de último año Nicoll Penagos. Es sorprendente la diversidad de culturas y costumbres en las que participa cada nación, es sorprendente cómo los hispanos podemos ser iguales pero tan diferentes al mismo tiempo. Este honor es especialmente importante ya que los hispanos son una gran parte del mundo. La educación proporciona una valiosa fuente de libertad que permite a las personas aprender y encontrar nuevas formas de establecer metas, tener una mentalidad de crecimiento, aprender de las experiencias y practicar nuevas culturas. Los hispanos aportan muchas ideas sorprendentes en materia de música, bailes, entretenimiento, recetas de comida y deportes. 

Yebdiel Hernández Estrada, estudiante de último año, dijo: “Me refiero a las comidas, tradiciones, culturas, música, etc… hay mucho que amar de ser latino”.
