On Friday, November 2nd students and staff at Paseo Pointe celebrated Dia de los Muertos. On this day, many Hispanic cultures celebrate by building altars and gathering to remember their loved ones who have passed away.
At Paseo Pointe, students learned about this beautiful tradition and participated in festivities. As a school, they constructed an altar with all the traditional elements such as flowers and mementos. Also, students brought in pictures of their family members to place on the shared altar. Moreover, many staff members and students dressed up in Hispanic attire and painted their faces like sugar skulls. Classrooms also ate Pan de Muerto on this day which is a traditional bread that is shared by families.
