DDCS hosted the Hispanic Heritage Festival at the Upper School in October. This festival was not limited to the two schools, but to all who wanted to join in on the festivities, such as local residents and businesses of the Downtown Doral community. 

Students paid a small entrance fee and were able to enjoy the array of activities. This year’s festival had traditional activities like previous years along with some new additions. Participating in the festival were local vendors of jewelry and ethnic foods, DDCS parent volunteers at booths which represented Hispanic countries, and games for children to play. These booths were decorated in bright colors, country flags and candies that represented their country’s heritage. Children bounced in the jump houses, performed Latin dances onstage, and enjoyed time with their families. 

Teachers were also in appearance at the festival as they walked around and volunteered in games. Students were able to take selfies with them throughout the event and share them with their classes. One of the main attractions of the day was the Dunk-A-Teacher area with special guests Mr. Stone and Ms. Garrido.
