The Irving Police Department welcomes the years of celebrating CINCO DE MAYO in Irving. This wonderful community celebration is a tribute to the great historical event of our country which consists of many people from many nations sharing cultures. Latinos form an important part of our culture and are the fastest growing population in the United States and are an important part of our history and our society. As an example, many Latinos are serving our country today just as their ancestors fought for freedom in Mexico. This observance of the CINCO DE MAYO is an excellent opportunity to celebrate Hispanic culture, and to commit ourselves to a bright future.

Irving ISD salutes DCET and is proud to support the Cinco de Mayo celebration. In Irving ISD, we fully embrace DCET’s motto of “Believe in Yourself.” As educators, we know that our students will thrive when they have confidence and a strong support system of people who believe in them as well. We also know that when our students thrive, our entire community will flourish. The diverse talents and diverse heritage represented in Irving make our public schools an ideal place to learn and grow. With more than 35,000 students representing nearly 100 nations— including several Latino countries—Irving ISD is honored to partner with DCET.

DCET is very proud to present four scholarships for these outstanding students who are investing in their education. We know that education is the key to success because it opens doors for people of all backgrounds, and it expands the human mind with knowledge. The vast amount of knowledge gained through education prepares individuals to solve problems, teach others, function at a higher level and implement transformational ideas. Without education, one’s chances for securing a good job and ascending to a higher economic and social status are often limited.


Why do we celebrate CINCO DE MAYO in the United States?


A Mexican army of teenagers defeated a powerful French army at Puebla, Mexico on May 5, 1862, and in doing so, helped preserve the Union (United States) during the American Civil War. How could this be if the battle took place in México and the American Civil War was in the Zaragoza Unites States?

Mr. Lincoln’s navy, however blockaded the South in the Gulf of Mexico. To reach the war zone in the United States, Napoleon III had to find another passage so Mexico became the alternate route. Napoleon III refused to honor Mexico’s request for more time and used the money issue as an excuse to invade it with military power and to eventually proceed to the United States. Here is where the Mexican Army helped preserve the Union. On its way to Mexico City, on may 5, 1862, a French Army was met at Puebla by a Mexican Army which soundly defeated it. The victory united Juarez’s forces against France. Although France was stronger and managed to control Mexico until 1867, the Mexican Army kept them busy all the American Civil War-years, and it was never able to get involved in the conflict on the side of the South. During this time, the decisive battles of the American Civil War were fought, and the North won, thus reuniting the United States. The relationship between Mexico and the USA began to improve, especially after the United States sent troops to Mexico after the Civil War, to help defeat the French. The Battle of Puebla changed the course of our history, and through the years it has signified cooperation, patriotism, and a shared sense of pride between the two countries. A fellow Texas and native of Goliad, Texas, General Ignacio Zaragoza, was the leader and hero of this historical event. Incidentally, The Monroe Doctrine was defended at Puebla for the first time since President James Monroe wrote it in 1823. Every year, some folks inquire as to why a Mexican Holiday such as EL CINCO DE MAYO is celebrated and commemorated in our Country… You decide… James Monroe wrote it in 1823.

After being a Spanish colony for over 300 y ears, México became independent in 1821. For the next forty years, it experienced many internal revolts, was invaded by foreign countries (primarily the United States) resulting in the loss of a third of its territory, all of which went to the United States. Today, that territory has names like: Arizona, California, Colorado, Kansas, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas Utah, and Wyoming. Due to the Texas Revolution of 1836, in which Mexico lost part of Texas, compounded with the events above, Mexico’s distrust of the United States made relationship between the countries very difficult. However, something coincidental happened in 1861. Abraham Lincoln became the president of the United States where he was confronted with a civil war while in Mexico, Benito Juarez also became president, where his civil war had just ended, and his country was bankrupt. Mr. Juarez decided to stop payments on foreign debts, and asked some countries for more time. France, under the leadership of Napoleon III decided to get involved in the American Civil war on the side of the South.

Every year, some folks inquire as to why a Mexican Holiday such as EL CINCO DE Abraham MAYO is celebrated and 10

DCET Success Stories Las Historias de Exito de DCET

Teresa Theagene

When Teresa came to “La Escuelita” of DCET in Irving, TX back in 2000, she enrolled in ESL and computer literacy classes. She was always a dedicated student, a wonderful volunteer, and she was always there putting extra hours of studies with a great attitude. When she graduated, she expressed that it was not easy to move out of Texas and start a new life up north in Selden, NY. She felt sad and torn apart by leaving friends/relatives behind. DCET gave her a refurbished computer donated by The City of Irving and her tears and a tight “abrazo” was enough to feel her gratitude. Now after 12 years we have re-encountered with her through social media, and is great to read her comments: “ I thank DCET/Believe in Yourself, for giving me the opportunity to grow and better myself, I owe it to DCET what I am now: A successful women who came to this Country, without hopes and lots of barriers, but DCET opened the doors of opportunity for me, so I turned to be a productive member of society.” She was thankful to DCET for mentoring her and offered the experience in learning how to manage a business. She expressed LA ESCUELITA of DCET did it. “I am a successful Independent Entrepreneur.” Maria Bustillo ifrom El Salvador, s another beautiful success Story of DCET - At 42 years of age, last year she took the PLAZAS COMUNITARIAS Spanish curricula from the Dep. Of Education in Mexico — She was eager to learn how to write/read in Spanish and learn English as second language. She continued studying her Citizenship course and has become a new citizens! “Nothing will stop me now that I can read and write, Maria said.” Her daughter was in school when we met her and has been very instrumental in being our allied too! She is one of our CINCO DE MAYO Literacy Partners and we are having the honor to recognize her mom today. All she needed was someone to encourage her. Maria her daughter expressed. LA ESCUELITA of DCET did so much for my mom. Maria Busio is ready to climb the mountain of success…! She is one of our greatest success stories of DCET!

United States of America and Mexico National Anthems

I Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light. What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave? II On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep, Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes, What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep, As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses? Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam, In full glory reflected now shines in the stream: 'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave! III And where is that band who so vauntingly swore That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion, A home and a country should leave us no more! Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution. No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave: And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Coro Mexicanos, al grito de guerra El acero aprestad y el bridón, Y retiemble en sus centros la tierra Al sonoro rugir del cañón. Estrofas I Ciña ¡Oh Patria! tus sienes de oliva de la paz el arcángel divino, que en el cielo tu eterno destino por el dedo de Dios se escribió. Mas si osare un extraño enemigo profanar con su planta tu suelo, piensa ¡Oh Patria querida! que el cielo un soldado en cada hijo te dio. II ¡Guerra, guerra sin tregua al que intente de la patria manchar los blasones! ¡guerra, guerra! los patrios pendones en las olas de sangre empapad. ¡Guerra, guerra! en el monte, en el valle, los cañones horrísonos truenen y los ecos sonoros resuenen con las voces de ¡Unión! ¡Libertad! III Antes, Patria, que inermes tus hijos bajo el yugo su cuello dobleguen, tus campiñas con sangre se rieguen, sobre sangre se estampe su pie. Y tus templos, palacios y torres se derrumben con hórrido estruendo, y sus ruinas existan diciendo: de mil héroes la patria aquí fue. IV ¡Patria! ¡Patria! tus hijos te juran exhalar en tus aras su aliento, si el clarín con su bélico acento los convoca a lidiar con valor. ¡Para ti las guirnaldas de oliva; ¡un recuerdo para ellos de gloria! ¡un laurel para ti de victoria; ¡un sepulcro para ellos de honor!
