Cinco de Mayo celebration draws crowd
N.Y. (May 8, 2017) -- Delaware
Community School sure knows how to throw a party.
The school held its annual Cinco de Mayo celebration
on Friday, with some 400 people flocking to the school to dance, hear
music and eat lots of great food.
Delaware Community School’s Cinco de Mayo event
celebrated general Hispanic culture and was open to all students in the
school, their families and community members. About a third of Delaware
students take part in the Dual Language Program, where students learn in
both English and Spanish and leave the school writing and speaking in
de Mayo, Spanish for fifth of May, commemorates the Mexican army's
unlikely victory over the French forces of Napoleon III on May 5, 1862,
at the Battle of Puebla.
