We will celebrate Carnival on Friday, February 12th in our language classrooms (both online and in-person).
As Carnival in Spanish-speaking countries is typically very colorful, students in the Spanish track may dress in jeans with colorful t-shirts. Students will create masks in their classes.
Students in the French track are encouraged to dress up as knights, queens, and kings.
Students in the German track may dress as children do for Carnival in the German-speaking countries. Costumes are usually simple and may involve some face paint. Masks are not typically needed (e.g. instead of wearing a lion mask, the face would be painted as a lion face). Please remember that costumes should be funny/happy rather than scary.
Here are some suggestions:
Jobs (e.g. baker, police officer, firefighter, etc.)
Animals (e.g. cat, lion, panda, etc.)
Magical (e.g. witch, wizard, fairy, etc.)
Story or Book Characters (e.g. princess, prince, Pippi Longstocking, etc.)
Choose one of the options above.
- Students are not allowed to bring toy weapons (e.g. swords, knives, guns, etc).
- Whole-face masks are also not allowed.
