Upper School Spanish students learned about and celebrated Día de los Muertos on November 1st and 2nd. It’s a holiday celebrated widely and in many different ways in the Spanish-speaking world, where families visit cemeteries to remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones who have died. In Mexico, people decorate with marigolds and set up altars full of flowers, photos, and foods their loved ones enjoyed. Students enjoyed decorating cookies and sharing photos to honor lost loved ones in their lives. They also created memorials to famous people who have passed.
See a Photo Gallery of the memorials and altar, which will stay up until mid-November at the far east end of the 2nd floor. So if anyone in the community would like to contribute a picture, flowers, or any items that would help them honor a loved one who passed away, they are welcome to contribute!
