Middle School Celebrates Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras is typically celebrated the day before Lent starts. It is the culmination of a season of fun that starts on Three Kings Day in January. The Class of 2021, 2022, and 2023 recently completed a research project in which they used the information to make a poster telling about the big day. In addition, each krewe as they are known, provided entertainment for other classes.
As part of their project each student constructed their own Mardi Gras float that was on display in the auditorium. Teachers evaluated floats, posters and the entertainment provided by individual krewes. The celebration included King Cake which is a staple at each party during the season. Students had a great time learning about this fun season before the solemn season of Lent.
