Welcome to our Mardi Gras at Wauwatosa West. On Mardi Gras this year we celebrated this French festival by inviting the fourth and fifth
grade students from Eisenhower Elementary to our high school. The eighth
grade students from Whitman Middle School also came to our school and
participated in Mardi Gras by making small floats and helping the high
school students. This joint effort by all three schools provided a
wonderful and fun Mardi Gras experience.
Our photo album will show you the fun and cultural afternoon spent
at Wauwatosa West. We played loto where the kids learned the names of
colors, animals and numbers in French. Mardi Gras necklaces were the
prizes. Colorful masks were decorated and worn by the students.
Delicious crepes topped with chocolate and whipped cream were eagerly
eaten. Homemade French pastries were sold to raise money for
scholarships for French Club. The students voted for the best float of
Mardi Gras. A king and queen paraded around amid the red, white, and
blue confetti. Finally, the "live wax museum" provided the opportunity
for the young students to learn about famous French people.
Come join us and share the fun of our Mardi Gras.
