Spanish Classes Study Día de Muertos

Freshman Kyle LeBlanc placed first in the "Bread of the Dead" contest with this project in Mrs. Thompson Spanish class as part of their Day of the Dead activities.

The Day of The Dead (Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday that is celebrated on November 1 and 2. On this holiday, families celebrate the lives of loved ones that have passed. In Mrs. Thompson's Spanish class, we drank Mexican drinks, made decorated bread for the party, and we also got to make a card that celebrated the life of a lost loved one to put next to our masks that we had made in class.

Noah Arita, freshman, said, “The Day of the Dead was very interesting and I had a lot of fun in class.”

Another freshman student, Peyton Boles, said that the class party was fun and he enjoyed learning about this Mexican Holiday.

We are so glad that Señora Thompson gave us this opportunity to get hands-on experience of the Mexican culture. Kyle LeBlanc placed first in the “Bread of the Dead” contest. Congratulations, Kyle!
