Congratulations to the 6th Grade Chess Team for finishing 3rd place at the Louisiana State Championship! We are also supremely proud of our  2018 4th Grade Individual Louisiana State Champion, Bastien Sever! Congrats to everyone and thanks to everyone for their time and commitment; you all should be very proud of yourselves!











Many students who take their own lunch have sweetened drinks. While it may seem healthful some fruit juices are packed with as much as 6 tablespoons of sugar. Others like Powerade contain as much as 11 tablespoons of sugar! This of course does not include desserts and other sweets packed with lunches. Next school year, we are requiring that students drink milk or water with their lunches.

We need to take care of our students' health. Too much sugar can really be an issue. While sugar is not forbidden it's important to teach students how to take smart eating habits. For example, when you are thirsty, drink water rather than a sweet drink. 

According to the American Heart Association in the American Journal of Medicine, children from the ages of 2 to 18 should consume less than 4 tablespoons of added sugar each day.
