Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month, also known as Latinx Heritage Month, is observed from September 15 through October 15 and recognizes the culture, history, struggle, contributions, and achievements of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.

The San Diego Unified School District officially recognizes and celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month each year, and encourages teachers, other staff members, students, and the community to use this opportunity to honor the contributions of the Latinx population through student led activities and inclusive curriculum.
