Caddo District PTA President
As we all know, the week of March 19 -23, 2007 was designated as testing week in the state of Louisiana.
The Caddo District PTA fully understands the importance of the testing and the impact it has on our schools
and our children. We are confident the students in our parish were prepared and did a great job.
I want to remind everyone that the National PTA established Teacher Appreciation Week-the first full week
in May-to honor the dedicated men and women who lend their passion and skills to educating our children. I
encourage you and your PTA to recognize all of the ways teachers contribute to the lives of children. During
this special week, help National PTA and its nearly 6 million members show teachers the appreciation they
so richly deserve. Teachers, in partnership with parents, truly make a difference.
The Annual PTA Founder's Day program was a big success. Founder's Day is a reminder of the substantial
role that PTA has played locally, regionally, and nationally in supporting parent involvement and working
on behalf of all children. Caddo District is blessed to have such an involved and dedicated PTA, which
represents all the parents and teachers who commit themselves toward the common goal of maximizing
There is no limit to the amount of positive things that can come from strong parent-teacher
collaboration. However, it is critical that all parents feel welcome to participate in the organization. There
are certainly plenty of ways that each of us can contribute to the daily successes of all Caddo students. If you
have not done so, please accept my invitation to become a member of PTA.
As always, I would like to remind you that if you need my assistance with PTA, please do not hesitate to call
me at 631-6358. I will be glad to help you in any way I can.
