Hispanic Heritage Month Across the District
Posted on 10/23/2023

From September 15 - October 15, Topeka Public Schools students, families, and staff celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month!

This week, the city of Topeka and the district's PreK-12 Dual Language Program, the only program of its kind in Kansas, were highlighted by the international media outlet, Telemundo.

Students at Highland Park High School took part in a Multicultural Tasting Fair featuring food from Central and South America, as well as a Hispanic Heritage Spirit Week.

Robinson Middle School also hosted activities featuring a performance from Ballet Folklorico de Topeka, information from community leaders, and Feliz Dia De Los Abuelos, also known as Grandparent's Day.

To end this year's celebration, students, families, and members of the community attended the Scott Dual Language Magnet annual Fall Fiesta on October 13, which featured a student talent show, games, local food trucks, a raffle, and entertainment.
