We were recently acknowledged by the Louisiana State Department of Education as being a "Top Gains" School. This recognition is based on our students' exception rate of academic growth. We are so proud of our students and teachers! In fact, we were so excited about our success that we had a week long celebration. Check out the photos from our wonderful week.

Mrs. Robinson's Class Celebrates Vocabulary Success
Mrs. Robinson promotes great vocabulary usage with her students in a unique way. Each time a word is taught to the students, they are encouraged to use the words in their everyday communication with one another. Each time the words are used in correct context, Mrs. Robinson allows them to pull a stick from her Kerplunk Game. When all of the marbles fall in the game, they celebrate their vocabulary success by having some type of special treat. This week was cotton candy!! Way to go Pre-K!! Keep up the great work!

On Halloween, our teachers and staff participated in a costume contest. They all came in their best storybook character costume and won the hearts of our students. They all looked great, but three costumes stood out above the rest! Congratulations to Mrs. Barron, aka Viola Swamp, Mrs. Ashlock, aka Fancy Nancy and Mr. Lewis, aka Doctor Dolittle. These three individuals won a special prize for their costume choice!
Hats Off to The Hub
On November 1st, our Gators participated in our Holler for a Dollar challenge. Students and staff were asked to wear their favorite or wackiest hat to raise money for the The Hub, a local charity who gives back to our Shreveport community. During this event, we were able to raise $415.00. All of the money raised will be donated to this wonderful organization. Thank you to all of the families and staff that participated in this fun day. Our "hats go off" to The Hub!
