The Eucalyptus Room celebrated Dia de los Muertos this week. We created an altar that was decorated with drawings, mementos, and symbols of the celebration. We learned about the symbolism associated with items on the altar or ofrenda. We ended our multi-day celebration by creating our own masks, sharing stories of beloved pets and family members, and enjoying hot chocolate and Pan de los Muertos (Bread of the Dead). I am always impressed with the respect and compassion displayed while classmates share their stories.
The Oak Room students tried to open their piñata, but it was so well made that the stick kept breaking. Some of the Primary students enjoyed watching!
