More than 400 Mason High School students took part in the school’s annual Hispanic Heritage Festival this month.
The festival, hosted by the Spanish National Honor Society and advisors with help from Mason’s ESL students and their families, celebrated Hispanic culture with ethnic food, dancing and songs.
Noteorius, the school’s a capella group, and Viva Colombia, a Colombian dance troupe, provided live entertainment whie teacher Betsy Carras led students in a Latin Zumba class.
The event not only celebrates Hispanic culture, but also rewards students who have worked to learn the language, said Spanish teacher Amanda Chmiel.
“It gave them an opportunity to be a part of different activities in our community where they actually put their language skills to use and gain a better knowledge of the Hispanic Spanish culture,” she said.
