    Our school district has much to celebrate!

      Last year, in an effort to recognize our teams and individuals for their accomplishments, we scheduled the Tangipahoa Parish School System’s First Annual Krewe of Champions Parade in downtown Amite and the event was a great success!

    Our Second Annual Krewe of Champions Parade is scheduled for Saturday, February 8, 2020, at 12:00 p.m. in Amite.  In addition to all our school bands, cheerleaders, and dance teams, “champions” from each school will participate in this event.

    Please plan to come out and join in the celebration!
