The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) hosted their first school event Saturday November 6th to celebrate both Hispanic Heritage month and Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead. Parents, teachers, administrators, and students were all in attendance.

The celebration included food cooked by families of the LULAC member, a variety of Latin dance performances, singing and LULAC members also shared facts about the two holidays. The purpose of hosting this event was  to educate the community about different aspects of  Latin American culture. 

 “There are so many events that go on in different cultures and we just want to educate on the ones we can,” junior LULAC member Jennifer Gutierrez, said.

At the celebration, one of the ways to celebrate was by dancing. Girls in varieties of costumes performed. Some of the costumes included sugar skull faces, flower headbands, and white dresses with a colored skirt. The group dancing is called Grupo Ka’ré. 

LULAC participates in other activities like community service, collaborations with other clubs, and they even fill up the vending machines in the high school. This Christmas they plan on helping students at the high school with fees and more with the money. 

“The real reason I do LULAC is because I can make a difference in these kids’ lives even if it’s just one student,” LULAC sponsor Becky Moreno said.
