Happy Birthday to our fantastic Executive Secretary, Ms. Andrea Vidrine! We hope you have a wonderful day! Mary Ann Wauters, the great-grandmother of one of our fifth grade students, visited the fifth grade class yesterday to discuss World Ward II.

She spoke on what it was like to live during the war and how she was involved. The students enjoying hearing about World War II, a topic they are currently studying, from someone who actually lived during the time! Yesterday, we celebrated the Feast of St. Nicholas! Our students left their shoes outside their classrooms before going into our Monday Prayer Service.

When they returned, they found that St. Nicholas had left candy in each of their shoes! Don't forget to wear your spirit shirt tomorrow for T-Shirt Tuesday! The 5th grade Donut Sale will also be tomorrow, so come prepared for those sweet treats! We love supporting our downtown community! Check out @geauxdowntownbr's Dog Days of Christmas Holiday Giveaway! There will be more than 25 of our downtown neighbors participating to give away amazing prizes.
