Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate Día de los Muertos with us at EVPL West. We were so happy to see Montessori families of past and present participating in many ways.

Special shout out to those who volunteered to help make crafts, set up and tear down, especially Elisa Koewler and Kristine Kleinsasser, Olga Uzun, Chris and Kerry Sensenbrenner, Brooks Corn, Solomon Boyce, and our Montessori staff. We are so grateful for everyone’s help in making our 7th annual celebration a fantastico success!
