Anti Defamation League’s Fighting Hate for Good Art and Poetry Contest
This year our students have an amazing opportunity to showcase their creativity for a cause through their participation in the annual Anti Defamation League’s Fighting Hate for Good Art and Poetry Contest. This contest is open to all No Place for Hate Schools in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas.

This year’s theme is centered around the words of Representative John Lewis: “Get in good trouble, necessary trouble.” What good and necessary trouble would you get into to fight systemic racism, hate, and prejudices of all kinds?

Write a poem or create a work of art exhibiting the following:
1. What good and “necessary trouble” you would choose.
2. Portraying how this “necessary trouble” will be used to help our community.
To qualify, all submissions must be received by March 31, 2021. A completed entry form must be attached to the poem or artwork. Students may enter one submission in each category (art and poetry).

Contest Categories:
Art & Poetry are open for 3rd- 10th Graders

1st - 2nd grade
We are so excited to announce that we are partnering with Tulane’s Center for Public Service and the Department of French and Italian to offer six weeks of French tutoring to families in 1st-2nd grade. Beginning the week of February 22nd and extending through the month of March, Tulane service learners will lead small group sessions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for students who have been recommended by teachers. During these sessions, Tulane students will focus on speaking skills and provide support for homework completion when needed.  

*** If you received an email with a tutoring time slot on Tuesday or Wednesday, please make sure that your child connects on time and/or inform Mary-Devon Dupuy mdupuy@lfno.org if your child is not able to attend.
*** After two unexcused absences, you will lose your tutoring spot

Lexia Reminder
Now that we have shifted back to virtual learning, here is a reminder about Lexia! Elementary teachers assign Lexia assignments on a weekly basis, it is an independent and research-based program that students should use regularly to boost their reading skills. 
Did you know that in grades K-5, LFNO uses Lexia not just to boost foundational and advanced reading skills, but also to guide literacy instruction? 
As students complete units, teachers can use the targeted skill builder lessons to intersect with any skills that were not completely mastered in the lessons. It is important that students are practicing regularly and meeting the recommended usage minutes in order to get the most out of this research-proven, and nationally recognized literacy program. 
Lexia is proven to close the literacy gap when used with commitment and fidelity! If you are having trouble setting up or logging into your account, please let Ms. Annie Neahring know.
