Spanish Classes Celebrate Life, Death and Dancing
Dia de Los Muertos 2013
Mrs. Baumgarten’s Art classes and the Spanish classes celebrated the Mexican holiday, the Day of the Dead. The holiday takes place on November 1 and 2. It is a day to remember and honor the souls of people who have passed away. The classes brought in pictures of family members and famous people and wrote descriptions of their lives. They also made Mexican style flowers, traditional bread of the dead, skulls and other decorations for an altar that was displayed in the hallway. We hope that their spirits are happy with us! Happy Day of the Dead!
Spanish and Latin Dance Show
Ms. Eisner’s and Mrs. Shrader’s IB and AP Spanish classes went on a field trip to CPCC campus, to see a dance troupe perform famous Latin and Spanish dances. The dancers dressed in traditional clothing, played instruments, explained the history behind these dances and represented numerous countries. The singing was great, the dresses were beautiful and some of us even danced on stage with the performers! It was a great show, very educational and it was a lovely day of culture and appreciation. We also enjoyed exploring the CPCC campus.
