A Message From Dr. Ricks

Dear Parents and Friends.


I am very proud of our young Gators. ITBS testing has gone so well; the students are taking it very seriously, and I have no doubt that their performance will be positive. In the midst of testing, our Lower School baseball and softball teams played in their respective tournaments. Congratulations to our 3/4th grade girls' softball team for placing 2nd in the tournament! Students are also excelling in academics as our 6th and 8th graders travelled to Baton Rouge to compete in the State Science Fair. Maisy Liles won a special award from the Society of Women Engineers and 3rd place in the Electrical and Mechanical Engineering category and Laura Lyne Fincher placed 4th in Microbiology. Not to be outdone, our 5th and 7th graders participated in the Regional Social Studies Fair today at ULM. We had several students place and will be reporting the details next week.


It is Gala Season! Items are beginning to arrive and fill the offices. Our parents and committee chairs have worked so hard, and I think that you will be pleased at the quality and variety of the children's art work and projects. Soon, we will begin to post items to the auction site, and we hope that you will be as excited as we are at the online participation piece of our Gala. Expect more information over the next several days as we get closer to this important event.


It is hard to believe that March is coming to a close and that we only have about 7 weeks left until the end of school. It has been a blessed year.


Warmly,

Dr. Beth J. Ricks

Head of School
