Mexican Independence at OMS

The folklorico dancers, Espiritu Bailadores (spirit dancers), performed for students as part of the celebration. The group is directed by Margaret Estrada, and most of its members attend OMS. The dances they performed were from the state of Jalisco, Mexico, which is described as embodying all the spirit, culture and love of life. In addition to the performance, teachers reviewed the history of Sept. 16, and the students learned what the colors and the eagle sitting on the cactus on the Mexican flag represented. Students also enjoyed Mexican bread.
