Addison Trail celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month and Italian-American Heritage Month

District 88 has about 40 languages and more than 30 countries represented among its families, and almost half of the about 4,000 pupils at District 88 speak a language other than English at home.

The district continuously provides opportunities for pupils to experience other cultures to help them develop a global mindset and learn life lessons. As part of that focus, Addison Trail recently celebrated National Hispanic Heritage Month and Italian-American Heritage Month.
