Remembering Fialeny Hernandez Our community is mourning the loss of Fialeny Hernandez, a first grade student in the Mandarin Immersion Program at GALA. Fialeny passed away on November 2, 2016. We are very grateful to have had the opportunity to serve such a beautiful, kind, sassy young lady that always had a smile on her face. Fialeny was loved by everyone that knew her, she had many friends, and she loved school. Fialeny was on her way to become trilingual, as she was already bilingual in Spanish and English. On November 8, family and friends celebrated Fialeny's life with a gathering and balloon release at GALA. We miss Fialeny every day and her spirit will live in our hearts forever.
