NCHS Service Learning Project

Twenty-four students from Natchitoches Central delivered food, blankets, toiletries, coats, towels and wash clothes, hygiene kits, laundry detergent, and other items to HOPE Connections Homeless Day Shelter and Christian Service Hospitality House in Shreveport on Dec. 13 as part of their English class’s service learning project. To date, this was the single largest donation of goods made to HOPE Connections. Students handed out items and Christmas cards while talking to clients and listening to their stories and, in some cases, their advice. The trip was a success all the way around and provided students with the opportunity to donate not only material items but also their time to a most worthy cause.

  1. I think that there are a lot of us who are proud of Miss Lesa for her leadership in this exemplary project, and other ones she has done, And truthfully, we have among our teachers, dozens of quiet angels, men and women, who go about their work, then go beyond their work with children, teens, and often with parents. Seldom appreciated, sometimes accused, always exhausted by 3:00 p,m. with papers to grade and lessons to prepare. There is a shortage of these people, of certified teachers, and it will not change unless we decide to respect and honor teachers a lot more here than we do now.

  2. I am so proud of my daughter Lesa Thompson. She has, and is still, making a difference in the lives of HER KIDS. Sh loves her and they love her. So happy the school allows this to happen.

  3. Wow! This is so awesome. Kudos to these young people for getting on board with this wonderful project and to Ms. Lesa Thompson for being at the helm.
    Creating future leaders. Renews my faith in people!!

  4. I am pleased with this wonderful service project. From time to time you can see this important kind of work come from NCHS. Collecting things to send to the troops. DonTions to the Humane Society. All great learning experiences for those young people as they help others. And when you look closely, the driving force behind it is always Ms. Lesa Thompson. Natchitoches Parish has a true gem in the school system.
