After petting the possum and snake, they presented the ladies with a check for $650 from their Holiday Market Cookie Jar sale!

Mrs. Juillard prepared mini crepes for the 4th graders in honor of La Chandeleur, a Christian holiday widely celebrated in France.

Candlemas, also known as the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus Christ, the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, or the Feast of the Holy Encounter, is a Christian holiday commemorating the presentation of Jesus at the Temple. In France, la Chandeleur is celebrated by making crepes. It is a very superstitious day for the French. In order to foresee financial luck, one tradition states you should hold a coin in one hand and flip the crêpe in another. If you flip the crêpe without it falling on the floor, you will receive prosperity during the year. #charlestondayschool #cds4thgrade #k8isgreat #candlemas #LaChandeleur #frenchcrepes
