Ciao Carnevale

Ciao Carnevale

Oldfield Middle School students in Rosalina Sinatra and Dr. Craig Butler’s sixth, seventh and eighth grade Italian classes celebrated Italian culture by creating masks in honor of “Carnevale.”

The students learned about the history of Italian “Carnevale,” "Martedì Grasso," also known as Fat Tuesday and the masks that go along with the week of celebration before "Mercoledì della Cenere" in Italy.

Students decorated their own colorful masks with their class, some of which will go on display on the second floor of the school in the showcase.
