ESL Class Honors Loved Ones and Writes Haikus

In October our SFJHS ESL class learned words relating to autumn and wrote haikus to demonstrate their understanding. 

Students also brought pictures and shared stories of their deceased loved ones in honor of Dias de los Muertos last week. Many faculty members joined our celebration by placing a photo (or memento) on the altar in Mrs. Thompson's room to show their love for family members they have lost. 

As you can see, the display was a beautiful tribute to those now departed.
