Honoring Hispanic Contributions and Histories

Hispanic Heritage Month is observed September 15-October 15 each year to increase awareness of the Hispanic community's contributions to science, fine arts, technology and more. This year's theme is Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation.

Beaumont ISD campuses are hosting performances, activities and encouraging staff and students to wear Hispanic cultural attire and colors on select days. Blanchette and Curtis are also hosting coloring contests, Dishman is doing a craft contest and Vincent is promoting a door decorating contest.
