Hamlin Celebrates Día de los Muertos

Our Spanish department is leading a school wide celebration of Día de los Muertos with an altar on the 1st floor of Stanwood.

Día de Los Muertos is a Latin American celebration that focuses on family and friends gathering to remember loved ones who are no longer with us. People traditionally bring food and objects called ofrendas to feast on and celebrate their cherished ones.

In our ofrenda, you will find a red bowl with paper butterflies; please feel free to write the name of someone you would like to remember on the butterfly and pin it to the wall.

Students will also be able to bring non-perishable food as part of the offerings. At the end of the celebrations, the food will be donated to a Bay Area nonprofit.
