The Spanish Club made "Calaveras de azúcar" to celebrate El día de los muertos (Day of the Dead), a common celebration in much of Mexico. The holiday honors deceased family and friends, while bringing together the living.

The students made sugar skulls, which are often decorated with flowers, tear drops, or indigenous designs. These are a traditional decoration made to remember and honor the dead in many parts of Mexico.
