Reflecting on Last Week 

  • Bains Lower and Bains Elementary are Lighthouse Schools!  That means both schools are national models for teaching leadership to our students.  A special thanks goes to the faculty, staff, and administration at each school for making this happen for our students!

  • Gage Gunnells celebrates the 100 point club in Accelerated Reader with Ms. Elizabeth Bristow, Assistant Principal at BLE.
  
  • I have had so many wonderful moments celebrating the success of our students.  One such moment happened this week.  Sharanda Stevens received her high school diploma several years after leaving high school.  Sharanda was an extremely hard working student who was not able to receive her high school diploma because of an old law that was not always necessarily in the best interest of all students.  With a change in the law (Act 303), we were able to celebrate the graduation of Sharanda, with her children and her husband.  A special thanks goes to Ms. Carolyn Lee and Mr. Steven Comfort for making this event a special celebration!
  • On Tuesday, the St. Francisville Rotary recognized our star Students of the Year:  Myles Bryant, Mathilda Fox-Smith, and Mika Cooper.  A special thanks to the St. Francisville Rotary for supporting our school system and taking part in our celebrations!
  
  • Caroline Sparks received the LHSAA All-Academic award at the state tennis tournament in Monroe on April 25. She was recognized for maintaining a 4.0 or above for all 4 years in high school while being a member of the tennis team.  Caroline defines what it means to be a student athlete.  A special thanks goes to Coach Wallace Ferguson for leading our tennis teams!
  • Bains has circulated over 44,000 books this year!!!  There are many students with 100, 200, 300, and even 400 Accelerated Reader points. As a school, Bains has over 21,000 AR points!  A special thanks goes to Ms. Hodges, Bains Librarian, the administration, and our teachers!
  
  • Ms. Jodi Knight implements a wonderful literacy strategy, Socratic Circle, to engage her students through collaboration.
  • Raising the flag is always a great way to start our day at each school.  Colin D'Aquila and Carter Lathrop raise Old Glory on Thursday Morning.
  • WFMS 7th graders have been allowed to showcase their leadership by traveling to BLE once or twice a week in order to assist students in writing workshop, centers, art projects, reading, etc. The students are thankful to use their skills and talents to help very enthusiastic and inspired kindergartners and 1st graders! A special thanks goes to Ms. Marissa Doherty, Ms. Amy Higgins and Ms. Livian Baity for making this a win-win relationship for both BLE & WFMS students!

  

  

 

  



Looking Ahead

  • Please check out the 2017-2018 School Calendar by clicking here.
  • On May 8th, Bains Elementary is hosting a Leadership Day!  Our students will absolutely amaze you with their leadership skills.
  • It's not too late to contribute to Project Graduation.
  • WFHS Graduation is on May 12 @ 7:30.
  • The WFHS Royal Blue Spring Swing Golf Scramble is on Monday, May 22nd.  All proceeds from the tournament will go to the WFHS Athletic Department.  Please contact Ms. Shelley Genre (genres@wfpsb.org) or Mr. Rod Lemoine (lemoiner@wfpsb.org) at 225-572-0490 for more information.
  • Please pardon our progress. Over the coming weeks, we will be re-crowning the football field and resurfacing the track.  In order to have the finishing touches on the football field ready for the first home football game, we must start the work now. Our track's color for next year-- you guessed it-- Royal Blue!
  • In case you missed it, we have torn down the old St. Francisville High and are getting ready to request proposals for a residential development, likely over the summer.  We have two goals in selling this property:  1) To maximize the sales price so that we can purchase property adjoining our schools or make upgrades to our existing facilities; 2) To compliment the town of St. Francisville and the Pecan Grove Community through the development. Our goal is to have a development that will be looked upon as an enhancement to the community and that we can all be proud of for many years to come.

  • I have had so many wonderful moments celebrating the success of our students.  One such moment happened this week.  Sharanda Stevens received her high school diploma several years after leaving high school.  Sharanda was an extremely hard working student who was not able to receive her high school diploma because of an old law that was not always necessarily in the best interest of all students.  With a change in the law (Act 303), we were able to celebrate the graduation of Sharanda, with her children and her husband.  A special thanks goes to Ms. Carolyn Lee and Mr. Steven Comfort for making this event a special celebration!
  • On Tuesday, the St. Francisville Rotary recognized our star Students of the Year:  Myles Bryant, Mathilda Fox-Smith, and Mika Cooper.  A special thanks to the St. Francisville Rotary for supporting our school system and taking part in our celebrations!
  
  • Caroline Sparks received the LHSAA All-Academic award at the state tennis tournament in Monroe on April 25. She was recognized for maintaining a 4.0 or above for all 4 years in high school while being a member of the tennis team.  Caroline defines what it means to be a student athlete.  A special thanks goes to Coach Wallace Ferguson for leading our tennis teams!
  • Bains has circulated over 44,000 books this year!!!  There are many students with 100, 200, 300, and even 400 Accelerated Reader points. As a school, Bains has over 21,000 AR points!  A special thanks goes to Ms. Hodges, Bains Librarian, the administration, and our teachers!
  
  • Ms. Jodi Knight implements a wonderful literacy strategy, Socratic Circle, to engage her students through collaboration.
  • Raising the flag is always a great way to start our day at each school.  Colin D'Aquila and Carter Lathrop raise Old Glory on Thursday Morning.
  • WFMS 7th graders have been allowed to showcase their leadership by traveling to BLE once or twice a week in order to assist students in writing workshop, centers, art projects, reading, etc. The students are thankful to use their skills and talents to help very enthusiastic and inspired kindergartners and 1st graders! A special thanks goes to Ms. Marissa Doherty, Ms. Amy Higgins and Ms. Livian Baity for making this a win-win relationship for both BLE & WFMS students!

  

  

 

  



Looking Ahead

  • Please check out the 2017-2018 School Calendar by clicking here.
  • On May 8th, Bains Elementary is hosting a Leadership Day!  Our students will absolutely amaze you with their leadership skills.
  • It's not too late to contribute to Project Graduation.
  • WFHS Graduation is on May 12 @ 7:30.
  • The WFHS Royal Blue Spring Swing Golf Scramble is on Monday, May 22nd.  All proceeds from the tournament will go to the WFHS Athletic Department.  Please contact Ms. Shelley Genre (genres@wfpsb.org) or Mr. Rod Lemoine (lemoiner@wfpsb.org) at 225-572-0490 for more information.
  • Please pardon our progress. Over the coming weeks, we will be re-crowning the football field and resurfacing the track.  In order to have the finishing touches on the football field ready for the first home football game, we must start the work now. Our track's color for next year-- you guessed it-- Royal Blue!
  • In case you missed it, we have torn down the old St. Francisville High and are getting ready to request proposals for a residential development, likely over the summer.  We have two goals in selling this property:  1) To maximize the sales price so that we can purchase property adjoining our schools or make upgrades to our existing facilities; 2) To compliment the town of St. Francisville and the Pecan Grove Community through the development. Our goal is to have a development that will be looked upon as an enhancement to the community and that we can all be proud of for many years to come.
