National Hispanic Heritage Month Events

HWIS’s mission is to help disseminate opportunities for our students and the broader public to celebrate the heritage of so many of our staff and parent community, and to educate our children.

To that end, we present here some fun events for National Hispanic Heritage Month. . .
