Madonna Celebrates Día de los Muertos Day

The Madonna High school student body gathered on Tuesday Morning for  Día de los Muertos Day  to celebrate the memories of our deceased loved ones. There are many different customs but the idea is the same.  Family and friends go to the cemetery to celebrate deceased by honoring them with their favorite foods, drinks and music.

Our Spanish III students read the history of the celebration  to the student body in front of  the ofrenda (altar/statue) adorned with calaveras, papel picado and mums.  After the reading all the students recited the Our Father and Hail Mary (PadreNuestro  y
Dios de Salve Maria) in Spanish.
