Cinco de Mayo celebrated

The English Language Learners held a Cinco de Mayo celebration in the Chase County Schools (CCS) auditorium May 2. Mariona Medrano Trevizo and Daphne Balderrama Vazquez were emcees throughout the night. One announced the upcoming acts in English while the other translated into Spanish. A video presentation explained that Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s independence day but rather a celebration of Mexico’s victory in the battle of Puebla and informed the crowd that 81 million pounds of avocados are consumed by Americans on Cinco de Mayo. The kindergarten class, above, sang Mi Amigo and performed a dance. The fourth and sixth grade classes, below, performed a festive dance for all to enjoy. Winners of the piñata competition were announced followed by refreshments and treats in the commons area. (Johnson Publications photo)
