Columbus Day, October 12, 2015

Today, in Sra. Guastaferro’s morning Kindergarten class, students learned about Columbus Day.

Columbus Day commemorates Christopher Columbus’ arrival in the Americas, which happened on October 12, 1492. The landing is celebrated as Columbus Day in the United States, as Día de la Raza (“Day of the Race”) in many countries in Latin America, as Día de las Américas (Day of the Americas) in Belize and Uruguay, as Día del Respeto a la Diversidad Cultural (Day of Respect for Cultural Diversity) in Argentina, and as Día de la Hispanidad and Fiesta Nacional in Spain.
