Atlanta Public Schools celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month September 15-October 15 to celebrate Hispanic culture and recognize the contributions Hispanic Americans have made to the United States.

The students of Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School kicked off National Hispanic Heritage Month this month with a visit from Patricia Arevalo, a representative from the Latin American Association. Speaking to Hispanic students, Ms. Arevalo encouraged the students to continue to pursue their education and dreams after high school, and even shared her struggles as a student.

Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School students painted a mural and created a display for National Hispanic Heritage Month.

Also, check out the beautiful mural and board created by King Middle School students!  The mural was painted by seventh-grade students Milisan Castro and Brittany Perez. Milisan and Brittany along with their fellow seventh-grade students Jessica Escandon, Brighit Chavez, Jacqueline Mencias, Jasmine Reyas and eighth-grader Artura Guzman designed the board to compliment the mural.

A big thank you to our partners Communities in Schools for hosting and sharing the visit via Facebook.
