French II students Lindsey Conrad, Brooke Keegan and Caitlyn Jablonski are proud to present their king cakes which they prepared for Mardi Gras.

Students in Carolyn Neuhalfen's French classes at Hall High School celebrated Mardi Gras on "Fat Tuesday. First, the students researched the history of Mardi Gras. Then they studied the food and the significance of Mardi Gras around the world. Then, on Mardi Gras day, the French classes sampled ham and cheese crepes, muffaletta sandwiches and multi-colored king cakes. The students wore traditional beads, masks and special Mardi Gras T-shirts which the French IV students designed.
