In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month coming to a close, Sra. Isabel Falcoa – mother of two Bolles Bulldogs – spoke to both Bolles Lower School Whitehurst Campus Grade 2 classes about her home country, Brazil, and her hometown, Rio de Jainero.

Students learn about many cultures, countries and languages during the school year at the lower school level, and time after time, visiting family members prove to be wonderful teachers. In recent months, two mothers born in North and South Vietnam shared their experiences with students in Grade 5 while Bolles Lower School Ponte Vedra Beach Campus friends learned about the Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah from a parent-teacher.  Falcoa’s visit was no exception, as she shared personal experiences and beautiful photos of the flora and fauna in Brazil. She also discussed the importance of rainforests in the country.

One of the visit’s highlights was the dispersal of Brazilian treats, Pão de Queijo-cheese bread and cookies, for students’ culinary enjoyment.
