Frida Kahlo Exhibit

Student Judith Cortes-Chavez, a current 5th grader, created a diorama box (including many pieces of artwork) as well as a report about Frida Kahlo which she displayed in the school's Dia de los Muertos exhibit last year and hopes to display again this year. Judith and her family contribute to this particular exhibit annually and enjoy sharing about their cultural heritage and traditions.
