International Club celebrates Day of the Dead

Yesterday, Spanish teacher Mrs. Katie Lozano hosted a Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration. Dia De Los Muertos, celebrated in Latin American countries such as Mexico, is a holiday where the dead are honored and recognized. It is a very traditional part of Hispanic culture. It took place in Mrs. Lozano’s class (room 233) after school. International Club students will made pinatas, talked about their ancestry and ate snacks.

“Dia de Los Muertos isn’t a scary holiday. It is a holiday that respects and honors our ancestors,” said Mrs. Lozano.

Mrs. Lozano is also planning on having International Club students help with the adopt a family program that St. Joachim Anne church is having. Students will help to raise money and contribute gifts for a poor family in need for this Christmas.
