SCHOOLS CELEBRATE MONTH OF THE YOUNG CHILD

 

 Central Park Pre-K students were styling and profiling in the annual Easter Bonnet Parade held April 15 at the Parent Learning Center.

 Students proudly wore the imaginative bonnets they made with their parents and modeled them as they participated in “A Stroll Down Central Avenue.” Parents were also given literacy activities to further engage their child at home and help them prepare to enter kindergarten.

 The children especially enjoyed an Easter egg hunt on the playground at the Parent Learning Center. It is one of the annual activities the PLC staff and Pre-K educators look forward to the most.    

 The event was held in conjunction with “Month of the Young Child,” an opportunity to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.

 Plantation Park Elementary’s Pre-K teachers and Parent Teacher Organization are also planning an Easter Fun Day to celebrate “Month of the Young Child.”

 All 85 Pre-K students at Plantation Park will gather on the back playground at the school the morning of April 17 to participate in egg tosses, making bunny necklaces, egg and spoon relay races and decorating bags for the goodies they win while playing the games. Students from Airline High School will be there as well to help assist the preschool children at the various stations set up.

 To learn more about “Month of the Young Child” or the services provided by the Parent Learning Center, call (318) 549-6812.

W.T. LEWIS CUTS THE RIBBON ON EXPANSION

 

 With kids’ safety scissors in hand, scores of students, school leaders and dignitaries marked the completion of the classroom wing additions at W.T. Lewis Elementary School by snipping three giant yellow ribbons stretched across each new pod.

 An official ribbon cutting ceremony was held Friday, April 4, that a large crowd of parents and others attended. Boys Scouts from W.T. Lewis posted the colors and led the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by remarks about the school by Student of the Year Madelyn Frentress. The fifth grader pointed out W.T. Lewis has been a Top Performing School since its opening in 2008 and invited guests to “step into our vision.”

 Principal Lisa Burns said the new classroom wings are more than merely brick and mortar; they also serve as a source of renewal for students and faculty. Bossier Schools’ Superintendent D.C. Machen mentioned the ribbon cutting marked a milestone.

 “It will signal the completion of the first major project in our 2012 school construction program. And thanks to the public’s support, it won’t be the last ribbon cutting we will hold over the next 10 years.”

 Machen cited W.T. Lewis as one of the fastest growing elementary schools in the parish, adding the expansion will give it much-needed space to better accommodate the demands of a continually growing student body.

 “We can all appreciate the fact this project also came in under budget and on time. Bossier Schools will continue to be diligent stewards of parish taxpayer dollars,” Machen added.

 Following the choral offertory “Spring In My Step” by W.T. Lewis second graders, members of the Student Council led guests on tours to show off the new, brightly lit and painted classrooms.

 Teachers will move into the classrooms following state assessment testing and have time to get their rooms ready before school lets out for the year. Students will enjoy the new classrooms and music room come Fall 2014.

THE PEN PAL PROJECT

 

 Until recently, second graders at Carrie Martin Elementary School in Plain Dealing and Platt Elementary in Haughton had never met face to face, yet they knew a lot about each other.

 It all started when their teachers, Kyle Davis at Carrie Martin, and Contessa Anthony at Platt, met at DIBELS training for Bossier Schools. Both were first time second grade teachers and swapped ideas and email addresses at the training.

 Through that correspondence, the two came up with the idea to improve students’ writing and communication skills by pairing their students as pen pals. Each month over the course of the school year, the students from Carrie Martin and Platt have been swapping letters back and forth.

 Then, it came time for the second grade pen pals to meet. The students enjoyed a recent outing to Brownlee Park in North Bossier, where they finally got the chance to meet and play with their new friends from opposite ends of the parish. Making it even better, they enjoyed pizza together. After all, what kid doesn’t like pizza?

 The pen pal project was such a success that Mr. Davis and Ms. Anthony will continue having their classes write letters the remainder of the school year and encourage students to mail letters to each other’s homes over the summer.

 The two teachers are also making plans to implement the pen pal project next school year with their new second grade classes.
