We had another great week! Our final day of skiing was Friday and we were very lucky this year to have great snow all month! This week we learned about Mardi Gras traditions in New Orleans and how multiple groups of people represent their culture through parades and floats on Fat Tuesday. Thanks to Dawn Dalili for coming in to teach us a little bit about Mardi Gras and how it is celebrated in New Orleans and for bringing a king cake!
