Día de Muertos ofrendas

Sadie Buggle, Editor-in-Chief

Students in Spanish level 4 at FCHS have created ofrendas over the past week in preparation for Día de Muertos, a Mexican holiday on which families honor their deceased loved ones and celebrate life. Ofrendas are altars created with photos of a loved one and objects that belonged to them and serve as a reminder of their lives, and are a large part of the celebration of Día de Muertos. Students were able to choose whomever they would like to commemorate with their altar, and their creations are being displayed in the spine, where students can vote for their favorite altar by putting change into the donation collector. All proceeds go to the Alonzo Martinez Scholarship Fund.
