Ms. Harless' French students celebrate Mardi Gras

 

Ms. Harless' French students celebrated Mardi Gras this past Fat Tuesday. They brought a King Cake and the King and his Krewe tossed out beads and doubloons to the revelers before leading a masked parade to Jazz music.

Mardi Gras came to New Orleans when French settlers brought old world traditions of fasting for Lent preceded by a raucous celebration with origins is using up the meat and butter which would not make it through lent. Some paraded a fattened ox through the streets.

The students designed doubloons and ball invitations and, created parade before the Mardi Gras celebrations.

Seniors visit State Capital

Capital High Seniors traveled to the State Capitol on February 2 to lobby senators and delegates on current legislation.  

The trip was the final step in a unit in Civics in which students researched their representatives and bills currently being considered in the WV State Legislature.  Students did in-depth research into the bills that concerned them using newspaper articles.  They contacted representatives to ask for information and set up appointments to visit representatives in their offices.

To start the day, students sat in on a portion of the Senate or House sessions and visited informational booths from Fairness WV, WV Osteopathic college, ACLU, Our Children Our Future and many more.    Throughout the day, they lobbied using their set appointments and “cold calls” to representatives offices.  This was part of All Are Welcome in WV day at the Capitol.  The attendees would like to thank especially Delegates Larry L. Rowe, Mike Pushkin, Andrew Robinson, and Charlotte Lane for taking extra time out of their very busy day to assist us in connecting to the correct delegates, discussing bills, giving advice and making sure our day was very productive and a great experience.  

These Cougars represented the school in stellar fashion.  Politics is messy business and these students showed everyone who came into contact with them that this generation is paying attention and is a force to be reckoned with.
