Gillispie “Gem” of the Week

October 28, 2010

Many Spanish speaking countries celebrate the holiday "Día de los Muertos" (Day of the Dead) on November 1 and 2. This month Gillispie elementary students learned about this tradition. Several Gillispie parents helped to erect an alter using crafts made by children during Spanish class. The altar honors Miguel Hidalgo, known as the "Father of the Independence," as Mexico celebrates its bicentennial this year. The altar will be on display tomorrow in the conference room and shows in vivid color one cultural component of our Spanish curriculum. Señora Radchik
