El Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead)

This week our students and teachers built an altar to celebrate El Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead) at our school. Grades students learned about this primarily-Mexican celebration of deceased loved ones during assembly. The children made decorations for the altar in class and celebrated in true Mexican style with adorned skulls and skeletons, colorful marigolds, traditional cut-out paper decorations, candles and more. Children brought in pictures or other favorite items of people (and/or pets) in their lives who’ve passed. Each Grades class enjoyed pan de muerto (bread of the dead) and mini sugar skulls, as well.
