Cinco de Mayo Fiesta

The SEF would like to thank all the parents, staff, teachers from all three school locations as well as our interns that attended this year’s 13th annual Cinco de Mayo Fiesta. This was a special year as we celebrated the first Spanish Immersion class graduating from grade 12, and we look forward to the next twelve years of continued success.

Our sincere thanks also goes out to our incredible emcee, Ian Leonard from Fox9 News, as well as our Principal, Sr. Moncada and Assistant Principal, Sr. Heglund. Their combined enthusiasm truly makes this celebration so special!

It was an amazing evening of food, dancing, games, photo booth, as well as learning a great deal about each of our interns through their personalized poster boards. The presentations were wonderful, and the Intern speech and video were incredibly heartwarming.

Through the LIVE Auction, SILENT Auction, Cork Pull, Beer Pong Tournament and ticket purchases, we raised $16,000.  Much of the success was the result of the many Kindergarten and NEW incoming Kindergarten parents attending this event for the first time. Thank you SO much for coming to learn what this Immersion community is all about and to support its continued success.

Mark your calendar for next year… Friday, May 3rd, 2019 at the Minnesota Valley Country Club.  Look for incentives for first time attendees…details to come in the next school year!
