Spring ISD is located in one of the most diverse areas in the country. Every day, we celebrate the fact that our students, families, and staff come from all walks of life, with a truly diverse community that varies in thought, experience, and worldview.
That is why we are excited to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, which is celebrated annually from Sept. 15 through Oct. 15. This month — which was started by an official proclamation by President Johnson in 1968 — is set aside to celebrate and recognize the achievements and contributions of Hispanic American who have inspired others to achieve success.
From our emergent bilingual programs to our traditional Hispanic performing arts to Spanish-immersive curriculum, Spring ISD aims to highlight, preserve, and celebrate the district’s Hispanic heritage every single day.
“In Spring ISD, there are more than 74 languages spoken among our students, staff, and families – with Spanish topping the list. Diversity is one of our core values, and celebrating that diversity is such an important part of making sure our district is inclusive and open to all,” Superintendent Dr. Lupita Hinojosa said. “Hispanic Heritage Month is just one step towards that goal.”
