Hispanic Heritage Month banner2

September 15, 2023

Dear Fallbrook Union Elementary School District Community,

I hope this message finds you healthy and well. As we usher in the vibrant and culturally significant month of September, I am thrilled to share the news that we are once again gearing up to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15th to October 15th. This month-long celebration holds immense significance for our community as we come together to honor the rich tapestry of Hispanic cultures, traditions, and contributions that have enriched our lives and our district.

Fallbrook Union Elementary School District takes immense pride in the diverse backgrounds and experiences that our students and families bring to our community. With a significant percentage of our students and families identifying as Hispanic, we are reminded of the powerful impact that these cultures have on our collective identity. This month, we take the opportunity to express our heartfelt appreciation and recognition for the invaluable contributions that our Hispanic students, families, and staff make to our school district.

Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, we have planned a series of engaging and educational activities that will not only celebrate the heritage of our Hispanic community but also foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of the cultural diversity that enriches our lives.

Our celebration of diversity and unity extends beyond this designated month. We are committed to creating an inclusive environment that honors and respects the myriad of cultures that make up our community. Our goal is to ensure that every student feels valued and empowered to embrace their heritage, share their stories, and contribute positively to the world around them.

I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to our Hispanic families, students, and staff for the integral role they play in shaping the identity of our district. Your unique perspectives, traditions, and talents enrich us in ways that words cannot fully capture. We are grateful for your continued support and partnership as we work together to provide an exceptional educational experience for all.

Let us use this opportunity to learn from one another, celebrate our differences, and foster an environment of unity, respect, and love. As we embark on this journey of cultural celebration, let us remember that our diversity is our strength, and together, we can build a more inclusive and compassionate community.

Please stay tuned for more information about the exciting events and activities that we have planned for Hispanic Heritage Month. We look forward to celebrating alongside our entire community, and we encourage everyone to join us in this wonderful celebration of heritage and identity.

All my best,
