Mardi Gras (pronounced “Mardee Grah”) is a festival celebrated around the world. It’s also commonly known as “Fat Tuesday” or “Carnival” – a day of feasting and merriment – before the fasting of the Lenten season begins. In the southern United States, we celebrate the festival with a Mardi Gras parade, which includes colorful floats decorated in green, gold, and royal purple, and catching brightly colored beads.
Every year, we celebrate Mardi Gras with a student-organized parade based on a theme. This year’s theme, America the Beautiful, represented the 50 states and the vast geography of our amazing country. Students chose their own states and worked with their parents to create floats, exploring their selected state’s geography, state symbols, and local economy. Students also made presentations to their classes to share their learning.
Students took to the stage to perform songs, dances, and musicals to welcome the holiday season. This year’s theme was “A Winter Wonderland.” The show kicked off with the Langham Creek High School Madrigal Choir and ended with our Percussion Band, where students demonstrated their learning in rhythm and musicality. Santa arrived in a red 1970’s convertible (Thanks Skip’s Farm!) and students took professional photos with Santa, courtesy of Alumni Parent Susan Mcleroy.
We celebrated our school’s 20th birthday, and we served lunch to nearly 200 people. We had a lot of food and sang our students’ favorite Thanksgiving songs. We also collected over 300 cans to donate to Cypress Assistance Ministries.
Our Thanksgiving Lunch prep started early in the week. The students made yams, corn bread, green bean casserole, and more, applying lessons in measurement, chemistry, and counting. We also recognized some of our teachers’ work anniversaries – our teachers have been here a while!
“Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause.”

This Veterans Day morning, our students joined Army Sergeant Caz Alvarez to raise the USA flag in honor of our veterans. The Alvarez family also led our students in a tree planting. The children will care for the plant during the school year to celebrate our veterans at home and abroad.
We had a fun Halloween Carnival! Our students dressed up in their Halloween Costumes, threw a Costume Parade, and played carnival games like Bean Bag and Ring toss, Fishing for a Treat, and Wheel of Fortune and more.
We had a fun field day! Our students participated in a tug o’ war, sack race, three-legged race and baton relay. And of course, the day ended in a tug o’ war between our #SunBears and #GrizzlyBears teachers.
