Westview Mardi Gras celebration is a huge success

Laissez les bon temps rouler! Our Westview Wildcats celebrated Mardi Gras this February. They made bead dogs and masks in art. Classes also had a read aloud about Mardi Gras traditions and learned about how people wear masks so that no one knows who you are and all people can celebrate together. Students learned about the Krewe of Zulu honoring African ancestry in New Orleans and the Mardi Gras Indians, African American krewes who honor the Native American tribes for their assistance with helping African Americans escape slavery. Then, it was time for our Mardi Gras parade, where our staff, students, and community members came together to let the good times roll!
