Escuela SMART Academy celebrating, educating during Hispanic Heritage Month

Toledo’s Escuela SMART Academy in the Old South End wants to expose its community to the Latino culture. Wednesday, September 15 marks the start of Hispanic Heritage Month and the bilingual school is teaching the true meaning by hosting a colorful Fiesta Con Escuela SMART Academy.

Sept. 15 is significant because it marks the independence of many Latin American countries.

For the kids, it’s a chance to open their eyes and expand their knowledge. For parents, embracing other cultures is what they want to see their children doing.
