Providence COVID Update
No new updates to report. The school appreciates your help in our efforts to remain open. As we enjoy this extended weekend please continue to practice safety precautions of social distancing and washing hands. Students need to remain diligent in refraining from gathering in large groups. Flu shots are also recommended due to decreased immune systems from prolonged quarantining.
Hispanic Heritage Month
Buenos días! September 15 – October 15 is Hispanic Heritage Month and the Spanish Honor Society and the upper level Spanish classes have completed creative projects to highlight awareness and celebrate the diversity of culture in America. In the foyer by the gym is a display of Hispanic influence and influencers, and upstairs outside the band room, are recreations of art by famous Hispanic painters and artists like Diego Rivera, Pablo Picasso, and Salvador Dali. Students will also be playing a Kahoot game during lunch as a fun activity to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.
