Barbara Bush Middle School Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month


Barbara Bush Middle School kicked off Hispanic Heritage Month with an open mic event.  Sra. G. Flores, our Teacher of the Month, is an amazing addition to our campus this year, She and her very artistic and talented husband created all of the beautiful props for our photo booth, and they also personally donated all of the delicious food, beautiful tablecloth, music and more!  The children were invited to read from a text found in our Mavon Wall Texas History Collection:  the history of the life of Miguel Hildago and the Mexican War of Independence (marking the beginning of Hispanic American Heritage Month)! It really was a smash!
