Beads With A Purpose ::..
Mardi Gras is over, but for the students at Lake Harbor Middle, their Mardi Gras beads have a year-round purpose.
Lake Harbor Middle students collect beads throughout the Mardi Gras season for their neighbors across Viola Street at STARC. At STARC, members take the beads and group them by color and size to re-sell them to the St. Tammany Parish community as throws for the Carnival season.
Next door at Marigny Elementary, Lake Harbor students participate in Marigny's annual Mardi Gras parade. The beads from the Marigny parade are a small portion of what Lake Harbor students collect for STARC.
It's a colorful way to keep the Carnival spirit alive and to give back to the community!
