Gateway’s Day of the Dead Celebration


Garrett Fowble, Staff Reporter

Dia de Los Muertos, also known as Day of the Dead, is a Mexican holiday that is celebrated on Nov. 1 and 2, when people who have died are honored and remembered by loved ones. 

Many of the staff and students at Gateway celebrated this holiday by coloring images of sugar skulls. They also shared a quote or personal message about a passed loved one. Ms. Murchie displayed the sugar skulls in front of the office and around the building, so everyone could see them.

There were many heartfelt messages written about loved ones. Mrs. Murphy went into the most detail as she wrote about her husband who recently passed. Ms. Murchie made one for a former student. Others wrote about family members, pets, and so on. 

Ultimately, the Day of the Dead is a great holiday for family and friends to come together to celebrate and honor their dead relatives. It was nice to see so many students and staff participate in this celebration.
