In observance of the Carnival season, Ronny Ciarniello’s French classes at Bethpage High School recently celebrated Mardi Gras.

The students prepared for Fat Tuesday by learning about its history and traditions, as well as exploring the celebrations held in various French-speaking countries and New Orleans. 

On Feb. 13, the students received beads in the traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold. Donning their colorful necklaces, they enjoyed a variety of French cuisines in the auxiliary gymnasium, which had been decorated for the festive occasion with masquerade masks, banners and centerpieces.
