French International Celebrates Le Carnaval

French International Celebrates Le Carnaval

On March 8, French International celebrated Le Carnaval with a parade, desserts, and dancing.

In the weeks before Le Carnaval, Maternelle students learned about Carnaval traditions. Teachers wove these stories into the current units of inquiry. Classes also created headpieces to wear during the parade, each class putting their creative flair on the decor.

French International welcomed The Beat Goes On Marching Band to lead Maternelle students through a school parade. Everyone met under the pavilion and paraded down to the fire station and back up the road to the main administration building. 

The celebration is not just for Maternelle students. Lower School and Middle School students and French International staff lined the parade route to wave and cheer for Maternelle.

After the parade, the band performed in the gym for all Maternelle students. Lower School students listened to and danced with the band later in the morning.

As part of French International’s united vision, we want to continue offering opportunities for our school to unite as one community. The energy from older students, faculty, and staff made the day memorable for Maternelle students. In addition, learning about the history and traditions of Le Carnaval offers an educational opportunity and continues to broaden the minds of our young global learners.
