Cinco De Mayo words wearing a sombrero

Dear GES Families:

I hope everyone had a wonderful day. Happy Cinco De Mayo day. I hope you are all practicing your Spanish!  I am in the mood for tacos! Thank you learners for sending in your picture messages for our staff. They loved seeing your smiling faces and reading your heartfelt notes.
