Cinco de Mayo Fiesta will take place on FRIDAY, May 6 from 6 pm – 11pm at Minnesota Valley Country Club in Bloomington!

The Cinco de Mayo Fiesta is the SEF end-of-the-year adults-only celebration with parents, teachers, staff and interns.  There will be great food, music, a wine cork pull, auction, Magic-Comedy Show and more! 

As you know, the SEF International Teaching Intern Program is a unique educational resource that we are fortunate to provide for our children, teachers and community. Due to the impacts of COVID, the SEF sponsored 5 interns this 2021-22 school year.  Next year, we look to invite 16 interns to our schools! Our interns come from various Spanish-speaking countries to help in our children’s classrooms each year. Interns model Spanish conversation with the teachers, share their cultures with our students, and provide an additional adult in the classroom to assist the teacher. This is important for EHSI because, unlike other elementary schools in the district, parents are not able to help in the classroom unless they are fluent in Spanish.

Remember, the intern program is funded 100% by immersion parents through our primary fundraiser, the Annual Contribution Campaign, and our Cinco de Mayo Fiesta. Eagle Heights, CMS, EPHS and the SEF receive no financial support from the school district for the intern program. Your donations to the Cinco de Mayo Fiesta and the Annual Contribution Campaign directly fund interns for your child next school year.

Thank you again for your continued support of the International Intern Program!
