It might be called an elementary school, but there is nothing elementary or easy in what goes on inside. Young men and women are learning skills that will serve them throughout their lives. Several hundred L.P. Vaughn students and their families gathered at the school for an open house Tuesday, August 9.
First-year principal Carissa Davis introduced her faculty and staff and outlined some of the goals she has for the school and its students. The children and their families then went to their teacher’s classroom to meet their teachers and see what learning adventures await.
The leadership of L.P. Vaughn has put in place some ambitious plans to raise the school’s testing scores. There is a wholly new curriculum in place. The school will offer multiple sessions of professional development throughout the year to keep faculty skills sharp. In addition, L.P. Vaughn has two new performance coaches who will be working across the school to assist teachers.
The Natchitoches Parish Journal wishes all the best to the young men and women at L.P. Vaughn as they lay the foundation for future success.
