Last week our students celebrated the 100th day of school with lots of fun math and literacy activities that involved the number 100. Did you know that to say 73 he French say 60 and 13, or that to say 95 they say 4 times 20 and 15? Yes, our kids are quite the mathematicians now! It is so exciting to see all 100 ways our students are expanding their minds, making new friends and acquiring lasting skills that will help them in the future! Thank you to all parents, staff members and teachers who helped make this a 100% perfect day!

Thank you for all parents who filled out the Lunch Application for the 2019-2020 school year. Accurate data regarding our demographics is essential for the work we do, especially in the area of grants and fundraising and to receive accurate funding from the LDOE to better serve our students.   Is also the expectation of the Louisiana Department of Education that we provide accurate information. If you have not yet, please, FILL OUT THE LUNCH APPLICATION . Instructions and link to application found HERE . It will take 1-5 minutes of your time and it will be a great help to our school. If you need assistance filling out the application, please reach out to Nicki Kristol at nkristol@lfno.org . Merci!
