On Thursday, February 23rd we celebrated our traditional Dominican Night, in which we celebrate our music and culture through various presentations. It is an activity through which our parents, students, and members of our community share a magical night.
The 1st Grade students danced to the rhythm of meringue, sung by our guests of honor. Also, six students made a tribute to the group 440, singing live several of their songs. We cannot forget to mention the Limé Dolls, formed by our teachers and staff, who also danced to the music of 440. The farewell dance of the 12th Grade students was something to behold, with its “Carnival” in which they personified the different characters of our colorful Dominican carnival.
Part of our Dominican night, is to honor those artists who have put our culture on high. On this occasion, we honored 3 great Dominican singers whose beginnings in music were with group 440: Maridalia Hernandez, Adalgisa Pantaleón, and Mariela Mercado were all honored for their musical careers.
To top it all off, we all enjoyed the taste of the wonderful food from our community.
