It’s a Big Week for Bossier Parish Schools

At 1 this afternoon, a special D.A.R.E. graduation takes place at Plantation Park Elementary. Fifth-grader Montrell Delaney is blind, but was able to complete the course thanks to an especially dedicated teacher. Suzanne Wilson transcribed the entire 33-page dare booklet into Braille so Montrell could participate, and graduate. MS. Wilson is a visually-impaired teacher who has worked with Montrell since he came to Plantation Park as a kindergartner.

Tomorrow morning from 9 to 11:30 is the Bossier Parish Gifted and Talented Kids Fest at the Bossier Civic Center. And at 10:30 that morning, it’s the “debut” and “taste-test” of sorts at Parkway High School’s cafeteria. Earlier this year, the Krewe de les Femmes Mystique and LSU Ag Center sponsored a contest in conjunction with the “Year of the Healthy Child” to come up with some healty but tasty recipes that could be included in the school lunch program. The winning recipe is “Sweet Potato Delight” — not only a health dish, but also made with Louisiana sweet potatoes. It will be served tomorrow for the first time.

And at 3:15 tomorrow afternoon, the Central Park Robotics team will be honored for being named “Overall Elementary Grand Champions” in robotics. They’re being given a pizza party after school by the Cyber Innovation Center staff.
