Hispanic Heritage Month 2022

Hispanic Heritage Month honors the history and contributions of Latinx People around the world.

With this year's theme as Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation, hear from Latinx PSD Students and Staff from on why all voices that are represented build stronger communities.

"All different voices need to be represented in our community because they all matter. Even though we come from different backgrounds, it's important that we respect each other. Whether you're at school, in a park, or any setting, no one should ever feel ignored. 

This is why all voices should feel represented in our community."

"Personally, when you include all voices of the community, it brings different perspectives to the topic at hand. As a bilingual individual, my first language was Spanish, and I later learned English in grade school.

My Spanish background has given me the opportunity to bridge the gap and interpret within our community."

-Abby Wise, Data Processor at Glacier View Junior High

"All voices should be heard. Each one has a meaning. I hope that one day for each person and race, it does not matter who you are because everyone is important."
