Our fifth graders learned about the Mexican Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) holiday yesterday during their field trip to El Museo del Barrio. During this three-day holiday, families and friends gather to pray and to celebrate loved ones who have died.
The field trip is conducted in conjunction with our Spanish immersion program in which our boys learn both the language and the culture of Spanish speaking people. The immersive experience culminates with a Spain Study Tour during the summer when the boys are rising eighth graders.
We are so fortunate to be close in proximity to cultural treasures like El Museo del Barrio, which enable our boys to view life through perspectives that may differ from their own.
