Viva LatinX Heritage! and Al-Mawlid Al-Nabawi

We're celebrating diverse holidays this month at LFSF, embracing all identities in our school community! 

Viva LatinX Heritage! 

September 15 to October 15 is Hispanic Heritage Month in the United States. Read more about its history here.

LFSF Celebrates those in our community who identify as Latino, Latine or Hispanic. Who is who? Terms to Know:

Hispanic – having Spanish origin or ancestry, preferred by community activists during the Reagan and Ford administrations

Latino – having ethnic and cultural identities rooted in countries colonized by the Spain, or the Iberian peninsula (Spain and Portugal)

Latinx or Latine (pronounced La-Tee-Nex) or Latiné (La-Tee-Nay) – used as a gender-neutral alternative to Latina or Latino.

You can read more about these terms here.
** All of these terms are both celebrated and debated!

¡Viva la bahia!  

Here are ways to recognize, learn and celebrate our local Latino community.
