Day of the Dead at Longllowfellow  

Day of the Dead originated several thousand years ago with the Aztec, Toltec, and other Nahua people, who considered mourning the dead disrespectful. For these pre-Hispanic cultures, death was a natural phase in life’s long continuum. The dead were still members of the community, kept alive in memory and spirit—and during Día de Los Muertos, they temporarily returned to Earth. Día de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a celebration of life and death!  

 

Altars (Ofrendas) will be done by grade or classroom depending on the teacher/parent participation. Please ask your room parent for details on how to sign up for donations. Ofrendas or also called altars are an essential part of the day of the Dead. However, traditionally these are not  for worship, they are simply used to remember our loved ones.   

 

It takes our Longfellow community to make this event special every year and if you are available to volunteer to please sign-up and thank you.
