On Tuesday May 7, the Darien 4th and 5th graders had a Cinco de Mayo celebration.
They first learned about what Cinco de Mayo is and why it is celebrated.
Then, kids brought in items to share that show their Mexican heritage.
After that, there was a feast. A few of the Darien Elementary School families brought in traditional Mexican dishes to share with the students and staff.
Finally, we talked about the Mexican flag and the kids colored a Mexican flag to take home with them.
