On Friday, November 2nd, ASB held a face painting competition to celebrate the Day of the Dead, also referred to as Día De Los Muertos. This activity took place during lunch.

ASB helped decorate the Quad before lunch by adding skeletons, marigolds, which are used to create a path for the dead to visit the living, and a poster full of skeletons. During lunch, custodian Richard Esquivel, wowed staff and students by singing a few Spanish songs to make the day livelier.

Students got into six different table groups, having three in each group. In each group, two of the kids designed one person’s face from their group with the face paint. The face paint was to be Day of the Dead themed.

Kids got really creative with their face paint designs. Some went vibrant in the colors as some even went as low as their neck. Some even wore outfits that referenced The Day of the Dead like suits and dresses, or added flowers into their hair.

When students finished their designs, three judges went around to each table. Once the judges made their final decision, Ms. Lee grouped up all the participants to take a group photos. After the pictures, Ms. Lee announced the winners. First place winner was Edward Navarro for “Most Creative Face Paint” with the help of Melissa Zuniga and Alejandra Mora. Second place winner was Jazmin Oritz for “Most Creative Outfit” with the help of Noemi Verduzco and Christian Chavez.

Ms. Lee congratulated the winners of the face painting competition, and both students got together with their groups to take a picture for the yearbook.
