Message from Superintendent Jenkins
Beau Chene High
Eunice High School
We started a new program this week. Since it is the seniors last week, if they turned in a gently used uniform, we are allowing them to have free dress this week. We got a tremendous response. We will use these uniforms for students next year who can't afford them. We have good kids that welcomed the idea of donating their uniforms to others.
Congratulations to the Woman’s Choir of Magnet Academy for Cultural Arts for getting all superior ratings at the state competition.
Congratulations to the band of Magnet Academy for Cultural Arts for winning the State Concert Band Sweepstakes trophy. The band got all superior ratings.

Opelousas High School
A Modern Chaucerian Senior Project
The AP English IV/Dual Enrollment class of Opelousas High School completed one of its many senior projects by doing a reproduction of Geoffrey Chaucer’s, Canterbury Tales Pilgrimage. Just as Chaucer crafted a portrait gallery of Medieval society during the 1300s, the class presented a modern day pilgrimage depicting modern personalities dressed in medieval attire. The students assumed the role of Chaucer’s objective narrator and wrote in his comparable heroic couplets, a prologue entry of the personalities they represented. As they journeyed around the streets near OHS, they enjoyed reading often witty, colorful banter of their character’s speeches. Modern personalities represented included El Chapo, Justin Bieber, Snoop Dog, Lana Delrey, Casey Anthony, Mac Miller, Ray Rice, 21 Savage Miley Cyrus and Donald Trump. The students added their original and creative written work to Chaucer’s 17,000 lines of vivid poetry that still resonate and entertain modern readers six centuries later.

School Nurse Day
May 10, 2017, marks School Nurse Day. Please recognize the school nurses of the St. Landry Parish School Board for their vital role in the educational process and the health and well-being of school children throughout the parish. School nurses manage and provide care to students with chronic health problems (e.g., diabetes, asthma, tube-feeding, and catheterization). School nurses deal with complex medical and social issues to thousands of students, often moving from school to school throughout the district. For some students, school nurses are the only health care professionals they ever see.
