CELEBRATING HISPANIC AMERICAN CULTURE

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Culture

  • Pflugerville ISD joins the nation in celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month in September and throughout our school year. We celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) to recognize the achievements and contributions of Hispanic American champions who have inspired others to achieve success. The observation began in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988.

    You can see the influence these cultures have had on our area and our everyday lives as these members of our community carry a little of their heritage with them through the generations.

    This is a special time to recognize and honor some of the members of the Hispanic community who have helped shape our country and provide inspiration for our Hispanic students, who make up more than 48% of our student body. Representation matters and seeing someone like you succeed in chasing their dreams of making a difference can be just the spark a young mind needs to put themselves on a path toward achieving their dreams. 

    Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, PfISD will be highlighting some of the achievements of Hispanic Americans who have made an impact in their community and our country.
