Spanish students have been discussing el Día de los Muertos, The Day of the Dead, and the traditions of this important Mexican celebration. These Kindergarteners created a paper version of a traditional decoration -
las calaveras de azúcar,
or the sugar skulls.
Students in other grades completed similar activities using the same
which were added to the hall bulletin board and classroom display. Junior High students made an "ofrenda" or an altar to remember deceased loved ones or personal heroes in the tradition and hope that their spirits will come visit on November 2nd.
