French Club host annual Mardi Gras Breakfast
The WHS French Club sponsored the annual Mardi Gras teacher breakfast. For the 15th year, the media center was transformed into Weddington’s very own French Quarter with Cajun music setting the atmosphere for a beignet breakfast.
French Club students began cooking beignets around 6:30 am to serve them warm and fresh to the teachers who look forward to this event every year. In the Foods classroom, some French Club students were cooking beignets while others hung Mardi Gras decorations and beads in the media center.
Mardi Gras is celebrated each year all over the world as one final joyous event before the solemn observance of the Lenten season. French students studied Mardi Gras traditions around the world to understand and compare the evolution of these cultural events.
