Celebrating Mardi Gras and community on the Avenue
Celebrating Mardi Gras and community on the Avenue

Throw me something, sister! On February 23, the Sacred Heart community spent the day mambo'ing down the avenue to celebrate the carnival season.

Little Hearts and Preschool students kicked off the fun with the annual Krewe of Smocks parade to the theme of "The World of Eric Carle," which celebrated the children's author and illustrator.

The festivities continued later that morning as eighth graders paid tribute to their favorite "Throwback TV Shows" during the Krewe de Coeurs parade, a Middle School tradition.

The culminating event occurred that afternoon when the whole school gathered in the front courtyard for the senior parade, the Krewe of Fluff. Led by the Sophie B. Wright Charter School marching band, the theme of this year's parade was "Howdy Gras," and Mr. Kenneth Hagans and Ms. Ashley Nolan reigned as king and queen.

It was a great afternoon of celebrating Mardi Gras, community, and Sacred Heart's partnership with neighbor Sophie B. Wright. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
