El Día de los Muertos, or The Day of the Dead, is a national festivity that is celebrated in Mexico on Nov. 2 to honor and remember those dear family members and friends that have left us and moved on to a better world. This festivity is also celebrated, although to a lesser degree, in other Central and Latin American countries, as well as many parts of the United States were Mexican communities abound. 

We want to invite students to make their own personal altars for Día de los muertos/Day of the Dead.

We ask them to bring a picture of a person they love/admire (relative or public figure), candles, flowers, a relevant small object — all of which they are/may be willing to leave for a couple of days to have this display on till November 1st.

Candies and Refreshments will be served.

Jesus Rosales will speak about its significance.
