Noche de Cuentos is a Mar Vista Academy family event where everyone was invited to participate, have fun and enjoy great stories! Students, teachers and parents set up a gallery of altars for loved ones that have passed. After decorating their cookies,coloring their “calaveritas” or getting their face painted, participants enjoyed stories told by two great story tellers.
This year we had the participation of Marilyn McPhie from Story Tellers of San Diego, entertain us with great scary and not so scary stories in English. We also had Ms. Rosalinda Garcia, BA in Theatre from UABC in Tijuana, present a great cultural play about why and how we set altars on the Day of the Dead. Big thanks to MVA’s teachers, staff, students and families who participated, and enjoyed this year’s Noche de Cuentos.
