This week, we received great news that the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LaDOTD) will open two lanes of the Sunshine Bridge this weekend. We are happy to hear about this progress as it is one step closer to resuming normal operations at all of our schools.
I hope you all have enjoyed this cooler weather as it reminds us of the holiday season ahead that we anxiously anticipate each year. I think I can safely state that we all are looking forward to some time off.
Thank you for your continued patience as we work around the Sunshine Bridge closure. You, our parents, along with our teachers and staff have overcome significant challenges to your personal lives in adjusting to increased travel distances and modified school and activity times.
Special thanks to all of you for teaming up with us to successfully kick off another school year. Although with any start of the year there are minor obstacles and challenges to overcome, we have had a mostly successful start.

Our hearts continue to go out to the community of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida as they work toward healing and recovery from the Feb. 14 shooting. One can only imagine the grief that they are experiencing. This event has impacted schools and communities across our country, and we have felt it here in Ascension as we all process this terrible tragedy.
Wishing you all a very special, restful, peaceful, and memorable holiday season!
The Thanksgiving Break is obviously the perfect time to express gratitude and count blessings. With that, here are just a few points of gratitude to share with each of you.
