                             How do you celebrate Mardi Gras?
                          Eighth grade Social Studies teachers go

                          Mardi Gras celebration. Students came

  Caddo Parish Mid-       until the end of the day. During second

  dle School Student      their assigned area and their costumes
  of the Year!            were graded and judged. During the
