El 16 de septiembre, el día de la independencia de México fue cuando se independizó de España. México se convirtió en un pueblo independiente y desde ese día quedó recordado por  los mexicanos por lo cual desde hace siglos se hace una celebración recordando a los participantes que le dieron libertad a nuestro país. Nosotros como mexicanos celebramos en familia con una pequeña convivencia recordando el 16 de septiembre, al igual, todo el pueblo se une en ese gran día mostrando pequeños desfiles y quermeses por las escuelas del pueblo. Una costumbre muy popular que se hace durante la fiesta es el “Grito de Dolores.”  Todos los mexicanos lo conocen ese canto famoso:

      ¡Mexicanos!

¡Vivan los héroes que nos dieron patria y libertad!

¡Víva Hidalgo!

¡Viva Morelos!

¡Viva Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez!

¡Viva Allende!

¡Vivan Aldama y Matamoros!

¡Viva la independencia nacional!

¡Viva México! ¡Viva México! ¡Viva México!

Nosotros,  como estudiantes de Weiss HS,  somos muy unidos y tenemos mucho orgullo por nuestras  raíces.

English Translation:

On September 16, Mexican Independence Day

On September 16, Mexico’s independence day was when it became independent from Spain. Mexico became an independent town and since that day it was remembered by Mexicans for which a celebration has been held for centuries reminding the participants that they gave our country freedom. We as Mexicans celebrate in family with a small coexistence remembering the September 16, like the whole town joins in that great day showing small parades and cherubs by the schools of the town. A very popular custom that is made during the party is the “Grito de Dolores.” All Mexicans know that famous song:
Mexicans!
Long live the heroes who gave us homeland and freedom!
Víva Hidalgo!
Long live Morelos!
Viva Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez!
Long live Allende!
Long live Aldama and Matamoros!
Long live the national independence!
Viva Mexico! Viva Mexico! Viva Mexico!

We, as students of Weiss HS, are very close and proud of our roots.
