BRIGINING CULTURAL PROGRAMMING TO THE ONLINE WORLD: DISTIRCT 99 TO CELEBRATE ANNUAL DAY OF THE DEAD PROGRAM WITH VIRTUAL PROGRAM

For the past several years, Cicero District 99 has embraced the Mexican culture of its community through encouraging the education and celebration of Day of Dead ("Dia de los Muertos"), the Mexican holiday which involves family and friends coming together to pray for and remember loved ones who have passed away, helping support the spiritual journeys of the deceased.

Monday, Nov. 2

4 P.M.

District 99 will be teaming up with the Cicero Mexican Cultural Committee for an hour-long online celebration, which will be livestreamed right here on our District website as well as the District's


Facebook Page


YouTube Channel

And, though things undoubtedly look different this year with remote learning and social distancing due to COVID-19, District 99 remains dedicated to honoring the cherished district tradition of Day of the Dead — albeit all virtual.

In preparation for this year's program, families from across District 99 have worked virtually with teachers creating "las catrinas" — well-dressed woman skeleton figurines traditionally used to symbolize death, and "ofrendas", or altars with a collection of objects to honor deceased loved ones.
 
The virtual program will include explanations of Day of the Dead traditions, performances from local Mexican singers, a demonstration on face painting, and an opportunity for viewers to vote for their favorite family artworks.


 

COMING SOON! Parent University Courses

The purpose of the D99 Parent Courses is to provide parents a foundation of knowledge of our curriculum, resources, and enrichment programs.

The knowledge and skills they obtain will help them support their child's academic achievement.

After successful completion of the courses in each strand, parents will receive a certificate.
