The Spanish Club, headed by Mrs. Carbol, has a mission to help students enrolled in Spanish to learn and embrace the cultures of different Spanish speaking countries. The Spanish Club took their annual trip to the Nation Museum of Mexican Art in Pilsen on Nov. 13. At the museum, students admired exhibits that deal with Mexican culture.

On display that week was a Day of the Dead mural. The Day of the Dead is a three day holiday in Mexico to pray for and mourn loved ones who have passed away. The display was filled with vivid yellow flowers, candles, and pictures of the loved ones that the artist lost.

After the museum, the Crusaders ate at an authentic mexican restaurant, Taquería Los Comales. The students enjoyed tacos, tamales, and churros for dessert.

Junior Michael Lynch said “The Spanish Club field trip was a very good time. We were able to look at breathtaking art and eat good food. All and all it was a very culturally-enriching experience.”
