The National Council of Hispanic Employment Program Managers (NCHEPM), announced the 2018 Hispanic Heritage Month theme: “Hispanics: One Endless Voice to Enhance our Traditions.” The theme invites us to reflect on Hispanic American’s tradition, history and culture.
The Hispanic Heritage observance began in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402.
Each year, Evergreen Charter School observes Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
Evergreen Charter School is one of the five charter schools, all Board of Regents-authorized, across New York State to be awarded federal Title IV funding by NYSED to support increased student achievement through the effective use of technology.
Evergreen Charter School takes a whole-child approach to elementary education. Teachers, administrators, counselors, and dedicated support staff work together to meet the intellectual, social, behavioral, and emotional needs of each and every child we serve.
I pledge to protect the Earth, respect the web of life upon it, and to honor the dignity of every member of our global family. One planet, one people, one world, in harmony, with peace, freedom and justice for all.
