Newsletter  :  May 2014

From the Superintendent...
May is a very important month during the academic year; it marks some very important milestones for many of us; the end of another school year, graduation for our high school seniors, and for our retirees the ending of a chapter in their professional journeys.  May is also the month when we recognize the great efforts of our teachers, our nurses, our outstanding support staff and our school nutrition staff.  Thank you for your service and I, along with the administrative staff, are grateful for your dedication to the welfare, health and academic success of our students.

In Lafayette Parish we have nearly 31,000 students that show up for school every day and because of the dedication of our faculty and staff we are able to meet most of their needs.
