It was all about celebrating at Cherokee Elementary School in Guntersville this week. On Tuesday, students held a Mardi Gras parade after weeks of preparation, followed by a "house party" to recognize the end of the most recent nine weeks.

Each class at CES began decorating floats–made out of wagons–in their special classes for the last two weeks, leading up to the Fat Tuesday celebration on Feb. 21. Each class had a theme for their float, such as “Masks and Costumes,” “Jesters,” and “Beads.”
