Congratulations to Dr. Lafargue on his promotion to Assistant Superintendent! We will miss having him as our principal but wish him well with his new position. I am sure he will keep Barbe close to his heart.

Attitude of Gratitude

I am grateful for Kelly Fontenot and Becky Soileau who planned a wonderful field trip this past Friday for our students to Angola. It was an eye-opening experience and one they will probably never forget. The students were very well behaved and thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

I am also grateful for Blaire Derouen and Lexie Griggs for taking on the huge task of the BETA club. The BETA students went to their first District Convention in Sulphur and had a great time networking and competing with other schools.

SLT Mid-point assessments

The mid-point assessments will arrive at Barbe shortly. The tests will be handed out according to the schedule previously e-mailed to you. Please revisit your e-mail for the schedule if needed. The window for testing will begin Tuesday, December 1st and will end December 18th. The tests need to be picked up before school on the day you will be administering your test and returned the same day so that someone else may administer the same test the following day. Mid-point assessment=mid-point of school year. Time is flying by. Hang in there!

Enjoy your week off!
