French Club Sells Mardi Gras Stickers


Caroline Michailoff, Editorial Director, Junior

The week after break, February 22 to 26, PMHS’ French Club will be selling Mardi Gras stickers. For the second year in a row, French Club has designed their own stickers. They will be selling last year’s design, a Mardi Gras pelican, for $1 and this year’s design for $2. To purchase you can see a French Club member or Mrs. Livaditis in room 205.

“Even though the traditional Mardi Gras parades have been canceled throughout the world, we are doing our best to make the most out of this year,” said Jordan Schwarz, a junior who designed this year’s stickers. “We want to take every opportunity we can to embrace the French culture and introduce PMHS students to it too!”

Normally, the French Club sells “mardi grams”, which is where one can buy mardi gras beads to get delivered to a friend in class. This year that was not possible with the pandemic, but the French Club was still able to keep the Mardi Gras spirit alive by decorating a window in the Language hallway. 

“It’s thanks to the students’ commitment and creativity that have allowed for a sense of normalcy. I was super excited that we were able to keep our caroling at the nursing home tradition going and I was even more excited about Mardi Gras. The school-wide tradition is over a decade old and we were going to have to adapt.” said Mrs. Livaditis, PMHS French teacher and French Club advisor. “Selling the stickers was another creative approach to connect to the students. Who doesn’t love stickers? They are an easy way to decorate your Chromebook. Even through the Pandemic, everyone wants to: ‘laissez les bons temps rouler’ (let the good times roll).”
