The Spanish teacher from St. Norbert School, Paoli, Miss Lauren Wisniewski, had a special project remembering those who have gone to God. This project was made for All Soul’s Day.
We at Saint Norbert School made this altar to celebrate the Day of the Dead. We used photos of Saints such as St. Norbert, St. Hubert and St. Katharine Drexel. The students in each grade were responsible for making one of the necessary items for the altar. We made Marigolds, cut paper, crosses, and skeletons and the older students were asked to bring in candles and bread. All of the students enjoyed learning about the customs and culture of Mexico and they enjoyed comparing the Day of the Dead to the American holiday of Halloween.
