Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a joyous time to remember those who have passed away. In Mexico, ancient Aztec traditions were combined with Christianity during the Spanish conquest. As a result, each year families construct colorful altars or ofrendas in their homes that essentially welcome the spirit of their loved ones on November 1st and 2nd.

National Merit Scholarship Corporation Names Six Seniors as Commended Students
The National Merit Scholarship Program recognized six seniors for their exceptional academic promise demonstrated by their outstanding performance on the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).
In our best defensive performance of the season our guys frustrated the #3 rated AAA team in the state. Fairview features a division I 6'11" player surrounded by four very good guards and is very well coached. Our communication and anticipation was outstanding as we played the passing lanes superbly and boxed out very well. Offensively, we committed just 4 turnovers, and shared the ball beautifully as Isaiah, Dave, Jett and Isiah all scored in double figures. Will and Jared continue to shine in so many different areas.
Our coaches are very proud of the basketball IQ and team togetherness that was on display today by our entire squad! Looking forward to the WPIAL draw Tuesday evening.
