Day of the Dead Celebration

Christ the King School will be celebrating Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) starting on Monday, November 5th.  The school will have an assembly in the church at 2:30 with Father Reynaldo who will give an explanation about the Dia de los Muertos.  During the celebrations, families pray for and remember friends and family who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.  People go to cemeteries to be with the souls of the departed and build private altars or ofrendas containing photos of those who have passed away.  Your child may bring photos to school of loved ones who have passed away throughout the week. We will have an altar by the school office and have it blessed sometime during the month of November.  Please make sure you label your family pictures. If you do not wish to send a picture, we will have students write the names of loved ones on paper and place them in a basket on the altar.


Friday we will be watching the movie, Coco, to finish our celebration of Dia de los Muertos.  If you DO NOT want your child participating in the movie, please call the office or message your child’s teacher.


Thank you,

Christ the King Teachers and Faculty

Durante las celebraciones, fas familiasorar y recordar amigos y familiares que han muerto, y ayudan a apoyar su camino espiritual. La gente va a los cementerios para estar con las almas de los difuntos y construye altares privados o santuarios que contienen fotos de aquellos que han fallecido. Su hijo puede traer fotos a la escuela de sus seres queridos que han fallecido durante la semana. Tendremos un altar o santuario junto a la oficina de la escuela y lo bendeciremos en algún momento durante el mes de noviembre. Por favor, asegúrese de etiquetar las fotos de su familia. Si no desea enviar una foto, haremos que los alumnos escriban los nombres de sus seres queridos en un papel y los coloquen en una canasta en el altar o santuario.


El viernes estaremos viendo la película, Coco, para terminar nuestra celebración del Día de los Muertos. Si NO quiere que su hijo participe en la película, llame a la oficina o envíe un mensaje al maestro de su hijo.
