Cinco de Mayo Celebration
As a tradition, Castleberry Elementary puts on another phenomenal performance to commemorate the Mexican Army's unlikely victory over the French on May 5, 1862 in the "Battle of Puebla." Orchestrated by Mrs. Araceli Ortiz, PE Assistant Coach, Castleberry Elementary remembers this battle with live singing, music, dancing, Mexican artifacts, and meals. It is a honor to be able to host such a school-wide event in which many students feel their customs, culture, and language validated. Students and staff, alike, are proud of the Cinco de Mayo festivities.
