CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Yesterday, the students of Meadowbrook Elementary School wrapped up their month of celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month on a high note.
The school asked a group of mariachis to go from class to class to play for the students. One of these group members, Leonardo Juarez, decided to show his talents in his own way.
“I only sing sometimes, but when I know it’s someone’s birthday, and we’re in a restaurant and there’s a party, I’ll sing for them,” Juarez said.
Dr Patricia Johnson, principal of Meadowbrook, said the group was invited yesterday to help share all aspects of Hispanic culture with students.
“The students were so excited to see the mariachi,” Johnson said. “They were impatient and they certainly heard the music once they got to campus and the kids were just thrilled, getting up from their seats and clapping.“
