Our Easter season started out with the joyous news of being awarded two Gaudet Grants from the Episcopal Community Services of the Diocese of Louisiana. The first $10,000 grant is for our summer camp program, the theme of which this year is Our Cultural Heritage – Western Africa to the Caribbean. The funds will help us provide an African drummer to perform and teach the kids, dancers and story tellers surrounding this theme. The second $10,000 grant is for our fall and spring academic year program for the 2016- 17 school year. Both programs provide an arts-integrated project learning curriculum, health,nutrition, group counseling, visual arts, choir, music lessons with LPO musicians, gardening and more.
A huge THANK YOU to Episcopal Community Services!
