At Sacred Heart Villa, Young Students Celebrate Dia de los Muertos

At one St. Louis Catholic school, instead of focusing on trick-or-treating, students learned about the spiritual aspects of Dia de los Muertos. "This is not about monsters," said art teacher Ruthann Larrigan in a St. Louis Review piece. "We're trying to teach them that death is to be celebrated, because it's a celebration of life." Celebrating Dia de los Muertos is a new tradition at Sacred Heart Villa, and this is the first year that students have used art, music, drama, and the Spanish language to celebrate and learn about this Mexican tradition. Read more about Sacred Heart Villa's celebration of Dia de los Muertos in this great piece from the St. Louis Review.
