“You’re welcome here once, you’re welcome here twice. We have an open door policy,” said Dr. Alvin Brossette, principal of East Natchitoches Elementary School at the school’s Open House.Over 100 students and their parents came to the event.

In his third year as principal he’s excited about the upcoming school year and his plans to raise the level of performance on state mandated testing.

Other staff members are excited for the new year. Master Teacher Cynthia Mason said, “I’m excited to have the students back into the classrooms this year.”

Brossette has challenged parents to become ambassadors for the school by getting them away from electronic devices and encouraging them to read more.  “I’m an educator first. I know what it takes to be successful in life. Parents, we’re like All-State. When you leave your child with us they are in good hands,” he said.
