The theme of this year’s display is El Dia de los Muertos… A Celebration of Lives Past. El Dia de los Muertos is a traditional way in the Hispanic culture to honor those we’ve lost. It originated in Mexico, and versions of this tradition are observed in Hispanic communities across the globe. With the loss of so many due to the COVID-19 pandemic, along with the recent passing of some of our own Academy community members, the HPC believes this theme is timely and important. Our intent is to celebrate and remember our loved ones as we express our grief through hope, as well as educate and inspire all who walk through. Join us throughout the month of October as we also celebrate in this spirit through additional activities and student/community participation. Hispanic inspired lunches will be offered by the dining service and the Hispanic Student Association will be putting on a Dia de los Muertos themed Procession/Parade on Friday, October 29th at 11:30am on the upper campus.

Join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, October 26th at 6:30pm via Zoom. A link will be sent out to all Hispanic/Latino parents with an agenda to follow.
