An Easter Prayer
Sunday, April 20, 2014

Of all of God's gifts
Easter shows us our fate
Forgiven we will rise
And pass through Heaven's gate

This Easter remember
The sacrifice of a Son
And through His resurrection
Eternal life we have won

This Easter I pray
That the love of God
Is resurrected
Reborn, renewed
Inside your heart
God Bless You!

8th Graders Take To the Swamp
Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Today, the 8th grade class visited the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. The Jean Lafitte Swamp and Airboat Tours explore Louisiana's back country along its meandering bayous abundant with wildlife and exotic plant life. Trained navigators escorted the 8th graders into the murky waters of Louisiana swamps where they came face to face with the beauty and beasts of nature. It was a great opportunity enjoyed by all.
