Mardi Gras!

 Happy Mardi Gras!

In Preschool we celebrated Mardi Gras with a parade through the halls of Saint Joseph School.

Before we had our celebration, we learned about Mardi Gras.
On "Fat Tuesday" we get ready for Lent which is the time of year
where we get our hearts ready for Easter.

We made crowns and masks to use during the parade.

Did you know there are three major colors used during the celebration?

GOLD means POWER!  The POWER to choose!
PURPLE means JUSTICE!  We do the right things!
GREEN means FAITH!  We believe in JESUS!

Take a look at all the fun we had with our parade!
