Los Puentes - Día de Muertos Program


The Fall Los Puentes Youth Spanish Program presented by Emporia State Federal Credit Union will focus on cultural education through a combination of language learning, food, music, and arts and crafts projects focused on the Latin American celebration, Día de Muertos. Join us for out-of-this-world learning as we take our students on a journey of cultural understanding through the lens of one of Latin America's most recognizable celebrations, Día de Muertos.


The Fall Los Puentes is a six-week program that meets once a week at the Emporia Arts Center (815 Commercial Street). There are two (2) separate classes, one for Kindergartners-2nd graders, and another for 3rd-5th graders. The two classes will meet on different days of the week. PLEASE BE SURE TO SELECT THE CORRECT TICKET BASED ON YOUR CHILD'S GRADE. Please read the class schedule information below very carefully.
