Latinx Heritage Month
On October 15th, students held a talent show for Latinx Heritage Month. A dynamic celebration which consisted of students’ gifts and stories of their heritage and memories growing up. We had the honor to hear from panelists, including some of our own staff, speak about their traditions, families, and realize all the similarities found throughout different cultures.
Our Spanish department teamed up with students to decorate the stage beautifully. There were performances by singers, guitarists, poets, and even our very own ukulele player. This evening of performances concluded Latinx Heritage Month with loads of pride and joy as we entered into the holiday season!
Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice
Cristo Rey New York sent a 17-student delegation to Washington D.C. to take part in the annual Ignatian Family Teach-In For Justice. The Teach-In is a 3 day social justice conference that's one of the largest gatherings of Catholic Jesuit schools in the country, as well as a chance to make a difference with real advocacy. This was the first time this event returned in-person in the time of Covid, and our little East Harlem school stood out for our students' signature passion, empathy, and engagement.
Our delegation got a chance to be in the (zoom) room where it happens, speaking with Legislative Aides at the Offices of Senator Schumer about immigration and climate change.
