In 2007, 80 students performed for a packed audience in Stanton's
Multipurpose room. They performed dances from the northern states of
Mexico. The Mother's Day Title I performance has become a tradition
here at Stanton Elementary.
Under the direction of Mrs. Islas, this group has gone on to perform
at various sites in El Paso. Lazos Folkloricos meets after school on
Fridays in the Multipurpose Room. Mrs. Islas volunteers her time and
there is no fee charged for participation.
Parent involvement is a plus with this group. They transport
students to and from performances and assist with chaperoning events.
Starting their 6th year in 2014-2015, Lazos Folkloricos looks forward
to continue spreading the Mexican culture through music and dance!
