Dia de Los Muertos was this week. The annual holiday is a beloved tradition that originated in Mexico, and honors loved ones who have died and celebrates their memory by welcoming their spirits back into the homes of relatives. Thank you to our Lations in Action students who created the ofrenda in the library to help us celebrate.
Midterm Grades are visible in Infinite Campus under “Grades” Q2/S1. If you have any questions about your student’s progress, please reach out to their teacher or grade level counselor.
STORM Time/Sources of Strength
