On October 10 we had a visit from Puerto Rico. Mrs. García is from Puerto Rico and she share with 5th grade her heritage.  She brougth her family from Puerto Rico and the students experienced a little bit of their culture.  Also the pop opera signer Ruthmarie visited us.  She talked to our 5th grade class and sang to them.  It was an cultural and great experience that the students are never going to forget.
