Independence Leadership Academy is celebrating all cultures this year with a Cultural Awareness activity each nine weeks, said Assistant Principal Melanie Johnston.

Mrs. Jamie Madron’s first grade students recently celebrated Hispanic Heritage by creating tissue paper flowers, snacking on nachos with salsa and listening to Latino music.

They also read the book “Chicks and Salsa” by Aaron Reynolds.
