You're Invited: Mardi Gras Math Night!
Mardi Gras beads and masks are all part of the celebration of learning as we enjoy a family fun night of games reinforcing math skills while also learning about Mardi Gras. Families will have a chance to play many different games together to earn beads! Our night will also feature opening ceremonies, crowning of Mardi Gras King and Queen, and a closing recessional parade with a jazzy beat that we will all join in. Most students will even work to create Mardi Gras masks in Art with Ms. O'Mahoney as they study texture. Parents and other guests are invited to bring a mask as well. Please RSVP so we can plan ahead. Can't wait to spend the evening with you, Mardi Gras style!
