Dozier's Annual Mardi Gras Parade



 On Friday, February 24, 2017, the Dozier Elementary parking lot was once again the grounds for the school's Annual Mardi Gras Parade. Pre K, Kindergarten and 1st grade students were participants in the parade, while 2nd through 5th grade students, teachers, parents and grandparents lined the outer edge of the grounds to enjoy the parade festivities.

As with other years, Pre K and K students created small floats with shoe boxes, wagons and decorated Mardi Gras items.

The role of the 1st graders in the parade was slightly different from the younger students. In Social Studies, the first grade classes were engaged in a unit revolving around different LA cultures and customs. With Mardi Gras as the most popular state event, the teachers used this time of year to strategically focus on the holiday, and simultaneously tie in Louisiana lessons involving resources, food, festivals and animals. Each student at that grade level was required to do a resource project and create a costume with a box or portable item.

The Grand Marshals escorted by the Erath Police Department and Father Andre Metijean, Pastor from Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church included the Dozier Elementary Teacher of the Year, Rachel Romero and her son Lynkon Romero who was the school's Student of the Year.
