Fiesta de Dia de los Muertos 2017

Dia de los Muertos is one of the many cultural celebrations that your student will celebrate in class this year. In the past, I have successfully been able to fund the ever growing event by securing a grant for Arts in the Classroom thru Silicon Valley Educational Foundation. This year, they are not providing any mini-grants; nor have I been able to find a grant that will fund such a celebration.

During our Dia de los Muertos week, students will participate in song, dance, reading and writing cultural calavera poems. Our cultural unit culminates with a traditional meal prepared by me and students create their own sugar skull calavera to take home.

Last year our buffet included Jamaica juice, Horchata, yucca, gallo pinto, atole, tacos filled with chicken, beef or potato along with rice and beans. Dead bread and other assorted Dia de los Muertos chocolates finished the meal.

It is my hope to continue this tradition as many students have asked when they are going to make their sugar skulls.

If you feel that you and your family would like to make a personal donation to help me make this event possible for all students, please consider making a donation. The cost per student is $12.00.
