Here are some pictures to get everyone excited to go back to school today. At the end of October, Ms. Miranda's 5th and 6th graders researched the history of Dia de los Muertos. They talked about how the experience of death is different in each country. After a lesson on this special day in Mexico, they became chefs! Ms Miranda taught students her grandma’s method for making salsa and her mother’s tricks for making tortillas from scratch. Though salsa and tortillas aren’t prepared specially on Dia de los Muertos, they are a staple for any Mexican festivity. Yum! The class listened to traditional Mexican music while creating papel picados- flags that decorate the streets during the vibrant holiday. Things got messy and they had a total blast! It was definitely a day for the books. Can't wait to see what all the classrooms have in store for December!


School Fun!
