Students at Stapleton Elementary enjoyed an annual Mardi Gras Parade hosted by the sixth graders. Under the guidance of the Sixth Grade Teacher, Vicki Gripp, students organized the parade for the rest of the school. Invited to participate were the school’s Cub Club which is directed by Elaine Guy, the Guidance Counselor. A treat this year was the sixth grade band students who played “When the Saints Go Marching In”. It added a very festive atmosphere for the parade. The band is under the direction of Deanna Lepa. Students seemed very happy as they went home to enjoy the long holiday weekend with all their new treasures.
