Stonegate Elementary students, parents and staff celebrate Latin American culture

Each year around this time, Stonegate Elementary School spotlights a different part of the world for a two-week cultural lesson and celebration. This year, the focus is on Latin America.

We dropped by the campus on Friday and discovered that students, parents and staff had transformed the media center into a virtual museum packed with art, crafts, historical texts and food. Meanwhile, the school also staged a pair of morning assemblies featuring music and dancing.

We talked to Principal Stan Machesky and others about the event and captured some of the festivities in this brief video.
