Last week, students and staff participated in a variety of Día de los Muertos activities. Día de los Muertos at Laurel is an opportunity for all our students to explore and learn about the Latino culture. As part of learning about Día de los Muertos, many classes and students created an ofrenda which is a place to display pictures and items that remind us of loved ones that have passed. Also, all Laurel students experienced dynamic, meaningful performances from Aztec dancers to learn about Aztec culture and traditions. A tremendous thank you to our World Language teacher, Molly Malone, for leading our Laurel Día de los Muertos celebrations, assemblies and events.
