CABE invites all of our members to join us in “El Dia de los Muertos” A Celebration of Life event at CHAC gallery on Santa Fe Dr in Denver. Come and see the altar built by CABE board of directors honoring language and being bilingüe. We are excited to be a part of the gallery this year and invite you to the opening reception on October 14th from 6-9 P.M. There will be traditional Mexican refreshments, an Aztec dancers procession, face painting, Calaveras de azucar painting and you can participate in a community decorating of the tree of life in honor of a loved one.
Find more information and address to CHAC gallery in the following websites. You can participate in decorating the tree with something personal. Read more about this wonderful opportunity to honor a loved one in a traditional Mexican way.
We are trying something new this year! On Friday 9/16/16, we will have visits at two schools, Escuela Bilingue Pioneer, where they have established effective dual language instruction and Columbine Elementary, where they have established a Biliteracy focus using Literacy Squared. The school tour will start with an introduction by the principal and then facilitated classroom observations, lunch, and a Q&A with one of our CABE Board members.
