Vendredi Gras

Today in French 7 and 8 we celebrated Vendredi Gras, our slightly-late Mardi Gras fête that is the culminating event of a week of hard work. Students researched the history and practice of Mardi Gras and French and Cajun history and culture in Louisiana. Then, they created their own Krewes and built wonderfully creative Mardi Gras floats. To cap it all off, we enjoyed some fresh homemade King Cake and zydeco music as we read letters from our pen pals in France. Lots of excitement to send us into February break!
