Students will perform, receive awards at Weaver Elites Showcase this Friday

Weaver Elementary’s Elite Program will present a Weaver Elites Showcase on Friday, May 7 at 5:30 pm on the downtown riverbank stage.

PE Coach Antonio Beaudion worked to start the Elite Program at Weaver Elementary. It began with its first group of students in August. The idea behind the program was to give students an outlet for leadership with a focus on education. Coach Beaudion hopes to promote positive behavior and confidence by giving the children positive role models and showing them how they can be better.

A Natchitoches native, Beaudion moved away but came back to work in the school system in 2018. He said he loves giving back to the youth and spreading positivity.

The public is invited to come out and watch step performances and an awards ceremony on Friday evening.
