Spanish Honor Society members and Spanish II and III students commemorate the annual holiday during month of November.
Students from Elder's Spanish National Honor Society set up a traditional Día de los Muertos altar in the school's chapel to commemorate the celebration.
Students from Spanish II and III classes wrote tributes in Spanish about a loved one, Elder graduate, or famous Hispanic artist who had passed away. These tributes, along with pictures of the deceased, were then hung in the chapel and will remain there for the month of November.
El Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a Hispanic holiday where families welcome back the souls of their deceased relatives for a brief reunion that includes food, drink, and celebration. It is a blend of Mesoamerican ritual, European religion, and Spanish culture. The holiday is celebrated October 31-November 2 each year.
