Would you like to Sit and Talk?
By Connie Mejia, Principal
A tribute to my native tongue, my language is beautiful! Well placed words with at taste of cinnamon and sweet lemon emerge from my lips to refresh your heart in some way! Amazing the amount of beautiful words!
They fill themselves with life and color. Similar to the butterflies navigating the most wondrous rainbow. A language sweet as cream of coconut and dulce de leche, sugar cones, and tamarind juice...
How beautiful! My language fills my life with energy.
Jump, swing and dance like the waves of the Caribbean Ocean!
It has curves and it flows with salsa and merengue.
Would you like to sit and talk?
I'll fill your soul with happiness, make your senses smile. You will feel the warmth of family and I'll refuse to let you forget that I am an important ingredient to this universe that definitely adds flavor!
Do you realize how beautiful my language can be? Use it!

Quieres Platicar Conmigo?
Por Connie Mejia, Directora
Tan bello mi idioma! Palabras con sabor a canela y limon surgen de mis labios como cascadas para refescar tu corazon! Cuantas palabras bonitas!
Tienen vida y color como mariposas navegando el arco iris. Un idioma dulce como crema de coco y dulce de leche, cana y jugo de tamarindo...
Que bello! Mi idioma me llena de energias.
Brinca, salta y baila como las olas del mar Caribe!
Tiene curvas y se mueve como salsa y merengue.
Quieres praticar conmigo?
Te llenare de felicidad, hare sonreir tu alma, sentiras el calor de familia y recorderas que soy
un ingrediente del universo que anade sabor.
Te fijas que mi idioma es prescioso? Usalo!
