Bicentennial Celebrations at Bossier Schools

LA 690There are Louisiana Bicentennial Celebration events going on all over the state, and Bossier City is no exception. Two Bossier schools are celebrating in their own way. One event going on at Haughton Middle School Monday is crawfish races. Students will watch their teachers race crawfish at the end of the three lunch shifts. Billy the Exterminator has been invited to attend, but it’s not definite that he’ll be able to make it. At Curtis Elementary, 4th- and 5th-graders will learn how to eat crawfish and the 4th-graders will rotate to vatious “stations” featuring Louisiana dance, food, music, animals, trivia and art. Fifth-grade rotations include an archaeology dig, music/washboards, learning about the French Quarter, the state’s famous people, Mardi Gras and George Rodrigue’s “Blue Dog.” Students are encouraged to wear a Louisiana-themed shirt for all the festivities.

One event is actually set for this afternoon. Third-graders at Stockwell Place Elementary will be sampling several Louisiana foods and be entertained by live Creole music…by French accordion player Rusty Sanner, who’s coming from Lafayette to play for them. Someone is also bringing an alligator for the children to see — and maybe touch! All that’s going on at one this afternoon.
