Goldonna News

Great things are happening in Goldonna, Louisiana and the new Principal at Goldonna Elementary Junior High School is making sure the community knows about it!

Principal Cori Beth Manual may be new to the area but she found out quickly that she was completely supported by the hardest working teachers and parents who show their school pride every chance they get. The gymnasium floor received a much needed polishing coat that hosted its first basketball game against NSU Middle Lab School on Monday, November 2. The Goldonna Wildcats did not pull off a win but they looked very stylish in their new uniforms.

The team boasted their first new and completely matching uniforms that they have had in many years. According to Mrs. Gordy, “Between the shiny floors and the new uniforms the kids were having a blast!”

The PTO is coordinating a “Ton of Deer Corn” raffle that will start this week and end on November 18th at 3:00pm. For more information about purchasing tickets you can call the school at 318-727-9449 or check their Facebook page for updates.  Mrs. Gordy was honored about a recent donation in which they will be using to purchase a new flagpole.

Don’t forget about all of the fun events planned for this coming Sunday, November the 8th at the Town Hall. The Lifeshare Blood Drive will kick off at 10:00 and continue until 3:00pm. The fish fry fundraiser is sure to be a huge success with many local residents participating. They will start serving delicious plates at 11:30 am and have the capability to deliver if you order eight or more plates.

The Veteran’s Day program will begin at 1:30 at Town Hall as well.

The Christmas in the Park Committee is working on a t-shirt design for the t-shirt fundraiser in which all proceeds will be designated for the annual celebration. Donation letters are in the process of being mailed. For sponsorship opportunities please contact Mayor Jennifer Smith at 318-413-7761 or Candace Smith at 318-727-4444.
