The last decade, Burton Hill Elementary has held a Spanish Immersion Showcase for the families of students in its Spanish Immersion Program. This year, the school is expanding this program to a community-wide Hispanic cultural celebration.
On December 20, 2018, from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Burton Hill ES will hold its first Hispanic Winter Festival. It will have authentic music and dances from various Spanish-speaking countries for community members to enjoy. Students will provide varying showcases on different Hispanic entertainers, art exhibits, and information about many Hispanic countries. The campus is anticipating more than 600 individuals to attend based on prior school events. The goal is to provide the school and community an authentic Hispanic cultural experience.
Catering will be provided by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
