October 12 is Día de la Hispanidad, a national holiday in Spain. Eighth graders in Ms. Benítez Pérez's Spanish classes marked the occasion by writing their favorite Spanish word. Chocolate (chocolate), caramelo (candy), queso (cheese), dormir (sleep), and fútbol (soccer) were among the choices.

Día de la Hispanidad commemorates Christopher Columbus's arrival in the New World on October 12, 1492, and emphasizes Spain's ties to Latin America and the international Hispanic community.
