Hispanic Honor Society learned about el Entierro de la Sardina during their January meeting. The ceremony includes a parade, unconventional costumes and the mourning of a sardine figurine or statue. Senior member Mary Grace Greene especially enjoyed the activity.

“My favorite part was getting to learn more about Spanish culture, especially because it is the culture of many of our Spanish teachers,” Greene said.
