The Student Council, under the direction of Mrs. L. McCray, is collecting Mardi Gras beads from faculty and students.

We’re trying to fill as many 64-gallon plastic cans with the beads and trinkets from the 2012 Carnival Season. We then give them to the Strive Foundation of New Orleans. This agency employs special needs adults in our city. They sort, re-cycle, and re-sell them at discounted prices to float and truck riders for next year’s Mardi Gras parades.

Students are asked to bring the their beads to school and deposit them in the Security Trailer’s can as they enter school. Beads will be collected until the end of the school year.
