For the past month or so, the students and teachers at the school have been preparing for Halloween. Halloween is not a big tradition in Spain like it is in the United States, so it’s been really fun to be able to watch the students get into the Halloween spirit! The students in the first, third and fourth sections of the bilingual program made a horror film including their own adaptation of Thriller. The students in the second section of the bilingual program made Halloween decorations for the school’s main entrance. The decorations consisted of popular Halloween symbols and explanations of their histories in English and Spanish. Today we celebrated the culmination of our efforts during the “recreo” or break period. Today’s festivities included the premiere of the video, a viewing of the decorations and a Jack-O-Lantern contest! Here are some photos! Happy Halloween!
