 Hammond Westside Montessori All-Pro Dads
All Pro Dads at Hammond Westside Montessori
Mr. Ralph Haynes Sr, a coach for Hammond Junior Tornadoes Youth Organization, was the guest speaker for the All Pro Dads Breakfast at Hammond Westside Montessori School. The central idea of his talk was to impress on parents the impact that being involved in their children’s lives has on their future. He stressed that communicating with teachers, knowing weekly grades, putting academics before sports, and supporting children at all times are what build confidence and good character in children. “If athletes don’t have education to fall back on, they won’t succeed. Parents, hold your children accountable for their choices”, said Coach Haynes. Mr. Mike Stant, the administrator of Hammond Westside Montessori, told the dads and children, “Have your own plan or you’ll be part of someone else’s plan.” This was a quote from Mr. Stant’s dad.

Independence Middle Magnet School recently hosted its Math, Literacy, Science, and Technology Night. Every teacher created a game or activity that was easily reproducible for parents.  Parents were given booklets to bring home so that every game or activity could be played at home with their child.  It was a very family oriented event, and everyone had a fabulous time.

Hammond Jr. High Magnet
Recently, a group of female students representing Hammond Junior High Magnet School attended a workshop at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. Tulane University’s GIST Program (Girls in STEM- Tulane) provided these young ladies an opportunity to meet and work with women role models in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. The Workshop was developed and offered by faculty and student teams from Tulane University. They encouraged and empowered the girls to inquire, investigate, and discover in a positive environment. The goal of GIST is to open the doors wide and welcome young students to careers in STEM fields by encouraging creative thinking, promoting self-esteem, and increasing awareness of the opportunities that await them. The girls were accompanied by STEM coordinator Tressa Jackson and Stacy Sylve.. Click here to see more pictures.

On Thursday, November 14th, over 40 students at Independence Elementary participated in their annual Thanksgiving feast held at Faith Temple Ministries in Independence, La. Two students from each homeroom were selected to attend the feast because they follow all PBIS expectations at school. The feast is lovingly prepared by members of Faith Temple Ministries and staff members of IES. Several businesses throughout the area also donate items for the event. This year, students created apple turkeys to take home and share with family members. A pilgrim, library media specialist Sheila Willie, also helped serve the students at the feast.
