Northport K-8 Northstar team prepared a special celebration for the school’s younger students recently. Students made Mardi Gras masks and mini floats using materials brought in from home and marched in a Mardi gras parade. The band students on the team led the festivities with their own rendition of “When the Saints Go Marching In!” Students threw beads and candies to the young onlookers. The activities planned by the team instructors throughout the day led to an effective lesson about Mardi Gras and promoted positive interactions among students and teachers.
