 Senior Kaitlin Beranek has been a member for three years and takes a special interest in the Spanish culture.

“It’s fun; it really helps you see the cultural aspect of Spanish that you don’t always see in class,” said Beranek.

The Spanish club holds  “tertulias,” which are often small meetings or gatherings to discuss various things about Spanish after school. The Spanish club isn’t just getting together and talking about the Spanish culture. They also do many fun activities to celebrate Spanish holidays and/or events.

This month they are preparing for “Dia de Los Muertos” or the day of the dead. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died.

Sophomores, upperclassmen and students that have been in PIBS-Spanish 2  are eligible to join the club.

If you meet these requirements then all you have to do is pay a visit to the Spanish club’s sponsor, Brian Sullivan, and ask about joining.
