Dear Lycée Community, 

It was heartwarming and emotional, to say the least, to see parents and students on campus yesterday and today! Thank you for helping us conduct a successful “retrieve” operation. Thank you for your smiles, your tears, your words of encouragement, your warmth and your distant hugs. We truly cannot wait for the real ones! 
We are an amazing and resilient community! We are ONE Lycée!


Stay healthy, 
Marina

A Message from our PTO

Bonjour, Lycée Family!

The La Liaison team has been working with our administration on Teacher & Staff Appreciation. If there is anything that homeschooling has showed us (in case we didn’t know it already), it is that our teachers, school leaders, faculty and staff are HEROES. We are excited to announce the plan to celebrate our incredible school team and know you are too!

The “usual” Appreciation Week looks different in these unusual times. Be sure and read through each of the carefully thought out ways families can participate to show our love and support for each member of our LFNO team and family. With each activity and chance to participate, we ask that social distancing and guidelines for public gathering be respected. There are many members of our school community with pre-existing conditions who are most vulnerable. Please keep everyone safe.

In addition to the Appreciation we show our school, La Liaison is grateful to each homeschooling parent, grandparent, guardian, and friend who are making it possible for our children to continue their education during isolation. Merci beaucoup!

COMMUNITY RESOURCES
Student Environmental Awareness Arts & Language Contest Deadline Extended to June 15

The Louisiana Department of Education, in partnership with the Louisiana Environmental Education Commission (LEEC), today announced the submission deadline for the 2020 Student Environmental Awareness Arts and Language Arts Contest has been extended as a result of the ongoing public health crisis. All student entries should now be postmarked by June 15.

The contest, which this year features the theme "Take it Outside! Explore Nature's Classroom," invites all Louisiana students ages 5-18 to create works of visual and language arts that demonstrate the important role nature plays in education. 

A panel of judges, including artists, biologists, teachers, and members of the greater environmental education community, will evaluate the works based on creativity and alignment to the theme. They will choose one winner from the visual arts category and one winner from the language arts categories for each of the following age groups:
Group 1: Contestants ages 5-7
Group 2: Contestants ages 8-10
Group 3: Contestants ages 11-13
Group 4: Contestants ages 14-18

Winners will be publicly announced in June 2020. First, second, and third place winners will receive a monetary prize of $200, $100 and $75, respectively, and be honored at a special event.

Winners will also be featured in the LEEC's 2021 calendar, which will be printed in the fall and distributed across the state and to the winners.
