Recently OMS students in Ms. Sinatra’s and Dr. Butler’s 7th and 8th grade Italian classes learned about “Carnevale” and “Martedì Grasso.” Students enjoyed learning the history of the holiday, making masks in the traditional Venetian style and celebrating the days leading up to “martedì grasso”, or “Fat Tuesday.”
