“I like Day of the Dead because I can see the altars. An altar is a place the spirits come to visit.” – Uma (K)
“It’s important to celebrate Day of the Dead because you can remember the people that die.” – Henry (1st grader)
“I have a picture of my grandma at the Altar.” – Emily (PreK)
A highlight in November has been the installation of the Día de los Muertos altar in which the children collaborated by bringing personal drawings and photos of their departed family members and pets. Together we made the traditional marigold flowers that decorate the altar and contributed to the beautiful design.
