BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- Sixth-grade students in Johanna Foster’s Spanish class at Briarcliff Middle School held a lively celebration recently in recognition of Mexico’s El Dia de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.

“We had a fantastic celebration,” Foster said, of the event on Nov. 2. “Students made authentic Spanish food like empanadas, arroz con pollo, flan, churros, quesadillas and more.”

In addition to an assortment of food, students created their own calaveras de azucar (sugar skulls), ofrendas (altars created for remembering their loved ones) and brought in freshly picked marigold flowers–all traditions of the special occasion.
