Blandford student celebrate Latino Family Night in Rowland Heights

Blandford Elementary celebrated its Hispanic heritage at its Latino Night on Oct. 18.

Families and friends from Rowland Heights celebrated the grand fiesta. The event was organized by the PTA and a team of Latino teachers.

“I think it’s great. It teaches the children tolerance and understanding for other cultures,” said Christina Meacham, whose 10-year-old daughter Mykel is a fourth-grader at Blandford.

Meacham manned the taco stand, where families could purchase combination plates with tacos, tamales, rice and beans.
