Last week students in Mr. Vaughan’s Spanish classes took time to discover the true essence of the Mexican celebration, Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Now, amidst a zombified nation where this celebration would make for a better movie title than holiday it was important that students encounter, explore, and experience the cultural significance of Day of the Dead.
Eighth-grade students were a captive audience as Preston Centuolo challenged them to find their purpose and to create a meaningful life. His message was clear and concise, “life is about choices, the choices we make determine the life we live”. Mr. Centuolo encouraged the students to make choices that reflect who they are on the inside and to not follow the crowd - “be the voice, not the echo”.
