Send a link to a friend
was Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras, Lent and Abe Lincoln's Birthday at
Carroll Catholic School.
Librarian Vanessa Tibbs was
the coordinator for the day's events. She said they celebrate Mardi
Gras when Valentine's Day
and the beginning of Lent fall in the same week; which made this
only the third time
they have had this type of party.
Each class made masks, brought
or made snacks, and talked about what they were going to give up for
Lent or what good deed they were going to do for someone else.
Several from Mrs. Davison's
class were going to give up things like pop, candy, bacon, chicken
nuggets and TV. Some of the things that were mentioned as "good
deeds" were to not pick on their siblings, do chores with a kinder
spirit and try to obey the rules better.
After the parties in the
classrooms, everyone met in the gym for a parade of masks and the
beating of the piņatas. A lot of fun was had by all, and everyone
enjoyed the sweet treats!
