WHY: The International High School of New Orleans (IHSNO) takes pride in its cultural diversity and will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month to acknowledge the contributions of Latinos in the United States and promote multicultural understanding and awareness of the efforts of the growing Hispanic population in the New Orleans metropolitan area.
IHSNO holds a series of cultural celebrations every year for the students, representing the languages that are taught at the school: Hispanic Heritage Celebration, Vietnamese and Chinese New Year (TET), French Week, Indian Day, Arabic National Day, and Black History Month.
The purpose of the Hispanic Heritage Month celebration is to carry on the beautiful Latino traditions that diffuse through the music, dance, arts and food. This celebration integrates all Hispanic descend students with the community as a way to empower, recognize and commemorate the cultural contributions of Latinos in America.
