2015 Junior Miss Crowley Jadyn Devillier, 2015 Miss Crowley Heather Trahan and 2015 Teen Miss Crowley Alyssa Williams

CROWLEY - The Grand Opera House was filled with beauty and glamour Saturday night as it served as the venue for the 2015 Miss, Teen Miss and Junior Miss Crowley Pageants.
With the sale of a surplus parcel of land in the works, Acadia Parish School Board member Gene Daigle said he wants to see the $90,500 put to good use. “I want us to do something special with this,” he said as he formally proposed the idea to the Budget/Finance Committee this week that the funds be allocated to teacher supplies.
It’s still very much in flux. That was the message Acadia Parish executive director of personnel and operations Ellan Kay Baggett delivered to the Personnel/Insurance/Curriculum Committee regarding the new state student privacy law Wednesday night.

True ‘blue’ schools

Never say that lightning doesn’t strike the same place twice, at least not when referring to student achievement and Acadia Parish schools.
You see, it’s not everyday that a school district can boast two National Blue Ribbon schools nominees, but, this year, Acadia Parish does.
Of its six nominations, the Louisiana Department of Education has tagged two Acadia Parish schools — Martin Petitjean Elementary School (Rayne) and South Crowley Elementary School — for the national honor.

Energy efficiency project ‘off to good start’

The first update on the district-wide energy efficiency project for Acadia Parish schools was a glowing one from Chip Moore of Johnson Controls Inc.
“Overall, our project has gotten off to a good start,” he said. “I’m happy with the progress.”
