Back to School

The rig explosion and oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico have empacted many families in St Bernard Parish Louisiana.

You can help ease their burden through assistance with school supplies and uniforms by sending donations c/o Ms C Muntz, St. Bernard Parish Public Schools, 200 East St. Bernard Hwy, Chalmette, LA. 70043.

The elementary and middle schools in the eastern or coastal areas of our parish are: St Bernard Middle, W Smith Elementary, and J F Gauthier Elementary Schools.

Another unique situation in our community also creates a new need for classroom library books. Andrew Jackson Elementary School will re-open in August 2010 as Andrew Jackson Middle School, the third middle school to re-open since the Hurricane Katrina. 

The majority of the faculty staff at AJ Middle School will be Teach for America teachers.  These young, dedicated professionals have not yet accumulated books for classroom libraries.  Donations may be sent to the same contact above.
