Spanish Classes Celebrate Mexican Holiday

Spanish classes in all divisions have been learning about and celebrating Dias de los Muertes, a mainly Mexican holiday when family and friends gather to pay respects and to remember friends and family members who have died. Students created their own altars and made decorations such as sugar skulls and clay skull necklaces. The Spanish II and 5th grade class had an opportunity to talk online to Sra, Gonzalez, a Mexican friend of Sra. Swanson. She talked to them about the way she celebrates the holiday, showed them her altar, and was able to answer the students' questions about the celebration. Students also tried “pan del día de los muertos” (a sweet traditional bread) and atole (a corn flour-based drink). We love the global education that TSS offers its students!
