Students from Grades 10, 11, and 12 gathered this week for the annual Spanish Fiesta which celebrates all things Spanish.
The highlight of the Fiesta was the special variety show that demonstrated the students’ Spanish skills through singing, dancing, and even performing on a telenovela they wrote themselves. They also watched the movie, “Bajo la misma luna,” a drama about a 9-year-old boy who tries to reunite with his mother who works illegally in the United States. Of course, there is no fiesta if there is no food, and our students enjoyed tortilla espanola, tostadas, and tacos for lunch; it was just what they needed to give them energy for the salsa lesson that followed.
The Fiesta ended with the traditional cake-cutting ceremony and with some special pinatas made by our students. Thank you to our parent volunteers for their help with lunch and a big thank you to Señora Riley and all those who made this Fiesta possible!
