Mardi Gras In Place

Thursday, February 11, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This year Mardi Gras is canceled in Louisiana, but not at Athlos Academy. Let us celebrate Mardi Gras in place with creativity, energy/zest along with Second Lining, and fun! We will celebrate Mardi Gras in a creative way here on campus.

On Thursday, February 11, 2021, all students, faculty, staff and administration alike will show their Mardi Gras spirit by wearing purple, green, and gold colors such as their favorite Mardi Gras shirts, socks, beads, jester hats, king and queen crowns or costumes.

We are asking that our faculty, staff, and administration to donate at least one bag of leftover Mardi Gras beads. We are also asking that either parents or teachers donate king cake to their student’s homerooms. During homeroom between 2:00 – 3:00, we will let the good times roll by having a celebration. All homeroom teachers will serve king cake to their students and second-line during movement break.

Mardi Gras music will be played while our Athlos students of the month will pass by all classrooms/offices and throw Mardi Gras beads and throws to everyone on campus. Any faculty or staff member who knows how to second line can participate by second lining down the hallways with our scholars.

Leading up to the event, we are asking that our students learn the history of Mardi Gras. For Teachers, attached are three mini video links to show your class, along with an activity you can choose. Students are asked to show their creativity by making their own Mardi Gras float(s) at home and bring them to school display in their classrooms.

The deadline to have their Mardi Gras float(s) completed and displayed in the classroom is by Tuesday, February 9, 2021.
