HPS at the 2022 Hartford Puerto Rican Day Parade!

On Sunday, August 21, 2022, Hartford Public Schools joined the CIDC and many other Hartford organizations and families for the 2022 Hartford Puerto Rican Day Parade!

Our new teachers from Puerto Rico, hired via the Paso a Paso Program joined our World Languages team, its Director Daisy Torres, Academics Chief Dr. Madeline Negron and Superintendent Dr. Leslie Torres-Rodriguez joined them, dancing and singing on their parade float.

“I loved seeing former and current students, families, teachers and staff at the Hartford Puerto Rican Parade on Sunday. The Hartford Public Schools parade float featured our new Paso a Paso teachers from Puerto Rico. It’s always fun to be with our colleagues and friends from Mega Education, Dresser Law, and Capital Community College,” stated Dr. Torres-Rodriguez about the fun day.
