Hispanic Heritage Month banner2

FUESD Parents and Guardians,

September 15th through October 15th is Hispanic Heritage Month. We are excited to celebrate the valuable contributions the Hispanic community has made to push culture forward and enrich society. We honor the progress, ingenuity, strength, and resilience of the Hispanic community as we discover and value Hispanic history, Hispanic heritage, and Hispanic progress.

We are excited to share a few historical figures of Fallbrook along with some of today’s leaders to honor the significant accomplishments of the Latino community and understand how you can be a leader for diversity and equality.
