  • October All Pro Dads Breakfast

    Our second ALL PRO DADS BREAKFAST held on October 15 was wonderful. The speaker was Shaughnessy Haynes, Sr. He talked to the students about working real hard to accomplish their goals and to be successful in school and in life. He made four specific points: Find out what your passion is and pursue it; set goals to achieve your passion/dream; find ways to stay motivated; and enjoy the process. Ms. Walker challenged the dads to spend some time at the school volunteering before the next breakfast which will be November 19th, and also left them with a question to ponder: How can we work together to get students to the breakfast who really need to be there to hear encouraging words and feel loved to boost their self-esteem and confidence levels?

  • Hammond Westside Montessori Teacher Uses Interactive Technology

    HWEMS fourth grade teacher, Rebecca Cullen, is using a program called Nearpod to lead instruction in her classroom this week. Nearpod is an online program that is free for teachers and students, and allows for interactive mobile presentations that teachers create and customize themselves. Ms. Cullen checked out a set of iPads from the Tangipahoa Parish School System’s technology department for her students to use. She is giving her students a sneak peak at PARCC like questions that they will complete at the end of the review. Students interact and submit responses on the iPads to the lessons delivered through the Nearpod program.
