It's a way to remember them, what they liked and their lives overall," said Jacqueline Zamora of Solis Learning Academy and first place student contest winner. "I never actually celebrated Dia de Los Muertos, so this actually got me into my culture and it reminded me where I come from."

"Cacique® is committed to giving back to families and our community in meaningful ways," said Tirso Iglesias, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Cacique®. "We were delighted to co-partner with Guerrero® and create an opportunity for the LAUSD community to be recognized for their passion for this important Mexican holiday and its traditions."

 People In Four States May Be Drinking Contaminated Raw Milk
by CDC
Posted: Wednesday, November 22, 2017 at 4:06PM EST

For the second time in three months, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning people who might have consumed contaminated raw milk and milk products to visit their doctor. People who bought and drank raw milk from a company called Udder Milk may have been infected with a rare but potentially serious germ called Brucella abortus RB51. While Brucella can cause anyone to become sick, women may suffer miscarriage and other pregnancy complications making it critical for pregnant women who may have consumed the raw milk from Udder Milk to seek medical care immediately.
