Hispanic Heritage Month
Hispanic Heritage Month launched in Central Islip Schools on Sept. 15 as students, faculty and staff at Central Islip High School wore special t-shirts that illustrate the pride and contributions individuals of Hispanic heritage have made and continue to make to society. The t-shirt initiative is being sponsored by students in the Central Islip High School's Multi Cultural Club. Ms. Dafny Irizzary, advisor of the Multi-Cultural Club, said a series of activities are being planned to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.

Throughout the month, Hispanic Heritage Month activities will be highlighted on this webpage:

* The bulletin board in the main corridor of Central Islip High School features seasonal displays by reading teacher Ms. Lori Goldberg and her very creative students. This month's display features Hispanic Heritage Month with a special dedication to 9/11 and those who lost their lives during the tragic events of that day, all with a focus on kindness and diversity.

* Members of the Central Islip Student Action Committee at the high school are proudly showcasing one of the many bulletin boards they’ve created. Most recently, they created one that is a nod to Hispanic Heritage Month, illustrating the significance of Hispanic heritage.

* As part of the district’s Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations, Mulvey Elementary School students were treated to a presentation by musician, Walter Rojas. Mr. Rojas took students on an imaginary musical journey through the Andes as he shared his talents by performing bamboo pan flutes. The performance was interactive and included a question-and-answer session. Students enjoyed the unique lesson in Hispanic history!
