2nd Annual Day of the Dead Celebration at GHSGilbert High School held its 2nd Annual Day of the Dead Celebration on November 2, 2018.

Modern Language Department Teacher Ida Gaumitz, her Spanish Class students, and the Student Council organized this cultural event.

 "El Día de los Muertos" is a highly celebrated and significant holiday held throughout Mexico, Latin America and the Southwest.  It is a day when homage is paid with prayers, offerings of food, the making of arts and crafts and the building of altars to those who have gone before us.     
To honor ancestors and to celebrate life, an ofrenda arranged by Student Council, art and Spanish students and a nine foot calaca puppet created by sculptor, mask maker and performance artist, Zarco Guerrero will be available for viewing  under the Tiger.  Flores de papel will be available for purchase as well as the opportunity to create your own calaca!
