High School Spanish and Art Teachers

In 2009, Loup City Public Schools and Palmer Public Schools along with ESU 10 sponsored a Day of the Dead video conference.  ESU 10 along with Julie Hewitt, Loup City Spanish instructor, and Jim Chvala, Palmer Spanish Instructor are inviting Spanish and art classes to join in our presentation on November 2, 2011.  To view a sample of a DOD event, go to Day of the Dead site.

Multiple sessions will be shared throughout the school day providing schools an opportunity to share their memorials or just be a viewer of the program.  Click here to see tentative schedule and presentation format.
