Las Aguilas de Oro Performance




    On December 16, 2022, Las Aguilas de Oro fulfilled their promise of bringing holiday cheer to the Toy Giveaway which was organized by the office of Mayor Sylvester Turner and the Houston Police Department, North Division. The activity took place in front of the HPD facilities at 9455 West Montgomery in Houston, TX.

    The folkloric troupe arrived right after school, at 4:30 pm, and danced two sessions. They took a twenty minute rest between sessions. Each of them was composed of the following musical numbers:

    El Cascabel, Sal y Limón, Jesusita de Chihuahua, Carretero se Va, Canción de Mariachi, and La Negra

    Las Aguilas de Oro were accompanied by their director, Dr. Mary Velasquez, our Magnet Coordinator Mrs. Amanda Vasquez, and the Magnet Secretary Mrs. Lucero Rodarte. Once there, they met Mrs. Maria Gonzalez, who used to work with us at Burbank MS, and who is now working with the Multilingual Department at the Hattie Mae White Building. She used to be a member of Las Aguilas de Oro when she was a student at Burbank and was there to watch her daughter perform. She was gracious enough to take pictures for us. Thank you very much! Once an Eagle, Always an Eagle!
