December 2022 Recognition
Principal Marlys Bennington and Towanda staff learned about the Mexican celebration, DÍa de los Muertos. During the two-day celebration, people pay homage to deceased friends and family members with ofrendas. The ancestor’s favorite foods and drinks are presented to welcome their spirit to the celebration. Towanda students created DÍa de los Muertos artwork that included the traditional bright yellow marigolds. Learning about cultural celebrations supports Unit 5’s goal of building inclusive educational environments.
