Hispanic Heritage Month
Dia de los Muertos (Day of the dead or All Souls Day) falls after Hispanic Heritage Month but is largely celebrated and honored as part of the month's celebration. While mostly celebrated in Mexico other Spanish speaking countries have also adopted similar traditions and honor their departed with alters and gifts to show their love and remembrance.
We will be creating an ofrenda to honor our loved ones. We invite students and staff to bring in a picture(copy), drawing, item that they'd like to place on our alter for your loved ones. Items may include a trinket or food item or picture of one. Drawings/art are welcome. We will do our best to preserve the alter and keep all items safe and secure but for safety and precaution, no valuables please. Staff will work to create the alter this week and students may begin bringing items next Monday, October 17 to remain on the alter until November 3rd.
What is the Day of the Dead? | National Geographic Society
Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a celebration of life and death. While the holiday originated in Mexico, it is celebrated all over Latin America with colorful calaveras (skulls) and calacas (skeletons). Learn how the Day of the Dead started and the traditions that make it unique.
Indigenous People's Day, 10/10/2022
In honor of the original people of the land we all live on, tomorrow, Indigenous People's day, Monday Oct. 10th, Mr. Romero, school counselor has organized a Mexica Danza group to come honor the land and ancestors at our school entrance as students arrive at school. Students and families will be greeted with drum and dance.
Also taking place Monday morning, Ms Karen Lacher will be smudging with sage in rm 2505 in honor of Indigenous People's Day. All are welcome. It will be a casual smudge, no specific words or intentions. Your own silent words and intentions are all that is necessary.
Notes from the Office
Consistent attendance is essential for keeping students on track academically. It is important for all students to attend all of their classes every day and arrive and leave school on time. School begins promptly at 8:30 a.m. and dismisses at 3 p.m. We recognize that in order to help all of our students achieve success in school, we also need support from families and the community.
We ask parents and guardians to ensure that your student is attending school every day and to limit absences and early pickups. If your child will be absent, parents/guardians are required to call the school Attendance Line (651-744-5533) or send a note with your child stating the reason for the absence.
If your student needs to leave school early, parents/guardians must send a written note with your child that contains the following information:
The time that your student needs to leave school
The reason for early dismissal
A parent/guardian’s telephone number
If a student fails to provide a signed note from a parent, they will only be allowed to leave school early if a parent/guardian or an authorized emergency contact comes into the building to sign them out.
