The Texas winter snow storm shut down our school for a full week in mid-February, but that didn’t stop our students from celebrating Fat Tuesday! In a belated celebration, first graders enjoyed jazz music, beads, King Cake on a stick, and a mini version of a “second line” Mardi Gras parade! The first graders paraded around the Eastin Family Innovation Lab while students in other grades cheered them on and enjoyed the festive music. Early Childhood students also participated in Mardi Gras activities in their classrooms with beads, costumes, and a variety of games.
