Juneteenth, also known as “Emancipation Day” or the “Day of Freedom,” is both the somber and celebratory day to commemorate the Thirteenth Amendment abolishing slavery. On June 19, 1865, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation, Union soldiers went to Galveston, Texas to enforce the freeing of all remaining slaves. Juneteenth is recognized annually on June 19th, commemorating the freedom of all enslaved people in the United States of America.
Las Cruces Public Schools would like to wish a very Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful father's on their special day. Thank you for all you do!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! The fifth day in May, known as Cinco de Mayo, is a day that celebrates the Mexican army’s victory over France during the Battle of Puebla in 1862. A year before the Battle of Puebla, Mexican President Benito Juarez suspended payment of all foreign debts. In retaliation, France invaded Mexico. Although a better-equipped French army outnumbered Mexican troops, Mexican soldiers in the town of Puebla prevailed victorious. It is important to remember that Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day, a popular misconception, but a day that commemorates a single battle fought during the Franco-Mexican War. The Battle of Puebla on May 5, represented a great symbolic victory for the Mexican government and reinforced the resistance movement. Over time, the day evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage celebrated particularly in Mexico and the United States. In celebration of this national holiday, traditions include military parades, recreations of the Battle of Puebla, parties, mariachi music, Mexican folk dancing, and other festive events.
