Caldwell Parish Schools
Greetings Team Caldwell!
It's hard to believe that we only have one month of school left in this school year. We have so much to be proud of in Caldwell Parish. It finally feels like we are somewhat back to normal, which is a wonderful place to be!
It's been a busy spring with activities and events taking place on all campuses. Spring testing is here, and now we are gearing up for end of year celebrations and graduations! Then we will be busy with our 2nd Summer Learning Camp and sports camps all summer long.
We've also been working hard on capital improvements across the district. These projects are funded through the ESSER monies we received, and it looks like we will be able to complete most of the projects on our school campuses by the end of the summer. A lot of planning and coordinating goes into making these projects come to life, and I want to thank our District Strategic Team, Monica Coates, Kim Adams, Rebekah Meredith, Ralph Simmons and Randy Rentz, along with Jeff Farrar for working so diligently to make it all happen.
I challenge you to dig deep and make these last few weeks count! Spring testing is in full swing, and we are looking forward to seeing how much our students have learned during this year of ups and downs, as well as what we need to do next year to continue closing any gaps in learning. Once again, we thank you for all you do to put our students first. Hang in there and finish strong!
