On Tuesday, February 17th from 6:00-7:30 pm, the World Language classes here at Manitou will host “An Evening of Language Learning and Culture” to celebrate Mardi Gras/Carnival in the MSHS commons and new gym.

Students will showcase their research about how Carnival is celebrated in Spanish, French, and German speaking countries and the United States. Presentations may take the form of poster boards, costumes, videos, slideshows, poems, banners, dioramas, masks, or food. To make the evening more fun and exciting, prizes will be given to winners of categories including but not limited to Best Costume, Best Video, Best Food Item, and Best Overall Presentation.

Inviting others to this community event is encouraged.
