Mardi Gras Celebration
Posted on 03/04/2024
Students at Hamady Middle High School celebrated Mardi Gras with gusto on Tuesday, February 13th, 2024. Under the guidance of Ms. Fykes, the classrooms buzzed with activity. They crafted vibrant masks, swayed to the infectious beats of parade music, observed the spirited dances typical of the festivities, and indulged in the delectable cuisine synonymous with Mardi Gras.

Rayna Smith, an 11th-grade student at Hamady High School, expressed her anticipation, stating, “Experiencing Mardi Gras firsthand offers a depth that mere textbook learning cannot match. I look forward to sharing my firsthand encounters, from the scorching heat to the tantalizing flavors of the food.”

A highlight for many students was the tradition of devouring king cake and eagerly awaiting the revelation of Mardi Gras royalty. Rayna Smith reflected, “Prior to this experience, I understood Mardi Gras as a grand celebration filled with revelry, music, and dance. However, delving deeper, I discovered its origins as a prelude to the fasting period leading up to Easter, marked by exuberant festivities and indulgent feasting.”

Through this immersive celebration, students not only embraced the vibrant culture of Mardi Gras but also gained a deeper understanding of its historical significance and enduring traditions.
