Jackson Elementary Celebrates Cinco de Mayo

Jackson Elementary staff, students, their families and the community gathered for a Cinco de Mayo celebration on May 4. In addition to delicious authentic Mexican food, students enjoyed watching their teachers compete to make the roundest tortilla, dancing and playing games that included pass the sombrero, pin the tail on the donkey, bean bag/ring toss, and a chance to burst open a piñata full of candy and goodies. Cinco de Mayo is celebrated in the United States to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War, and in Mexico to celebrate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla.
