Dia de Los Muertos School Altar

The Cultural Significance of Dia de Muertos

Dia de Muertos, otherwise known as the Day of the Dead, is a traditional Mexican holiday that celebrates and commemorates friends, family and loved ones who have departed. This annual holiday includes a special altar, the cleaning and decorating of graves, eating traditional foods such as pan de muerto and coming together to remember and celebrate those who have passed.

Monroe will build a school altar:
We will begin to build our school altar on October 29th. Students can bring a labeled copy of a loved one or some kind of artifact that is symbolic of their loved one. Consider making a copy of a precious photograph, and label the photo with the student's name and teacher’s name. Students can also draw a portrait.

We will take donations of Marigold flowers, candy skulls, Dia de Los Muertos ornamental Piñatas etc. We want to make this a wonderful commemorative cultural experience at school. Please participate!

Deadline to bring items for the altar is November 2nd.
