WES Activities

CULTURAL FAIR:

Weed Elementary School is celebrating the last of our four month multicultural celebrations, ending this month with the celebration of our Mexican/American cultures.  This week we were fortunate and excite to watch eight of our students perform for the entire school. They performed traditional dances from the state of Jalisco, Mexico.  The men wore Mexican charro outfits which were black shirt and pants, a rebozo/sarape hanging on the side, a big charro bow and a large sombrero. The ladies wore a colorful dress with ribbons and beautiful lace.  Our amazing students performed five different dances. The students performing were: Brian Garcia, Abigail Escobedo, Nayeli Flores, Julio Garcia, Gabi Tapia, Tommy Pineda, Gissell Murillo, Daniel Garcia, Isabella Garcia and Alex Sanchez.  Thank you so much to our students for sharing their culture with us and to Chela Tapia for putting together this amazing assembly.
