BO$$HOGG BROS. TEAM UP WITH VACHERIE ELEMENTARY
.

It wa
s a BO$$HOGG kind of day atVacherie Elementary School. The members of this very distinguished group visited Vacherie Elementary School on Friday, November 17, 2017. Mrs. Julie, the principal of Vacherie welcomed them with open arms. She stated, “ Their purpose is so positive! They are young men that are willing to give back to the community and we will embrace that. Teaming up with them will have a great impact. Together, we can empower and motivate our students to make a difference!”

The Bo$$Hogg Bros. hosted a celebration at VES for the teachers and staff. Recently,one hundred percent of the teachers on staff became Apple Teacher Certified. The Apple Teacher Program is a series of classes that helps teachers to inspire new ideas for lessons and trains them on the fundamentals of using iPad, Mac, and built-in apps. The Apple Teacher Certification is a district initiative and it’s highly recommended by Mrs. Simone Faucheux Labat, the director of Technology for St. James Parish Schools. VES also celebrated their SPS score. Mrs. Julie stated, “Our score was a result of hard work and efforts by our staff. We appreciate their dedication and loyalty to the teaching profession and their students.” 

Teachers wore their new shirts sponsored by the BO$$Hogg Bros. The front of the shirt bears the motto, “Apple Teacher: Touching Lives Through Technology” and the back of the shirt eads, “Sponsored by the BO$$Hogg Bros.” The organization also funded a special meal for the teachers and staff of VES. It was such a special treat before the Thanksgiving break. The menu consisted of gumbo, potato salad, cake, sweet potato pie, and pecan candy.

The most exciting part of the day was the meeting the organization had with Mrs. Julie (principal), Ms. Brenda (assistant principal), Mrs. Stephanie Juarez (counselor), Mrs. Keena (DIS), and Mrs. Armant (LMS). It was decided that these young men, who are all graduates of St. James High, would conduct a mentoring and tutoring program at VES. Yes, the Bo$$Hogg Bros. are now official members of the VES family. The key elements of the program will be to cultivate the development of students by promoting civic engagement, personal responsibility, and a life-long appreciation of learning. 
The look in the eyes of students as the BO$$ Hogg Bros. visited classes was astonishing. The staff of VES feels that this organization will be positive role models for students. Mrs. Julie stated, “Positive role models can transform a life and bring out the best in our students!”

Mrs. Julie Waguespack named as one of the 2018 Principal of the Year State Semi-Finalists Winners for the State of Louisiana

,

     Our principal, Mrs. Julie Waguespack was named as one of the 2018 Principal of the Year State Semi Finalists winners for the state of Louisiana. If you walk through the corridors of Vacherie Elementary, one may find it very difficult to locate Mrs. Julie. She is rarely in her office, due to the fact that she is in the classrooms doing whatever it takes to ensure that a vision of high expectations for teachers and students permeates every aspect of our school. This is one of the characteristics that deem Mrs. Julie as one of the state of Louisiana’s semi finalists.

     She is constantly building relationships with students and helping them to believe that people care about them. She is credited for bringing academic rigor to Vacherie Elementary and for her efforts as a “very, very strong instructional leader.”

     It’s an incredible honor for Mrs. Julie. She is like an orchestra leader and our students, teachers, support staff, parents, and a great community plays the beautiful music that inspires the dreams of every child at Vacherie Elementary. 

Parents be sure to congratulate her!

A Total Solar Eclipse Leaves VES Students in Awe

.

     On Aug. 21, 2017, millions of people witnessed a total solar eclipse across the United States. This astronomical event was a rare opportunity to witness the awesome beauty and power of our sun and consider the science and math that makes a total solar eclipse possible. All students of Vacherie Elementary School participated in some shape or form.

     Our second grade class enjoyed the Solar Eclipse by using “Solar Shades” to experience this exciting event.  Prior to going outdoors for the eclipse, students were able to watch the event as it was happening in the cities of totality.  The differences in the way the eclipse looked in Vacherie were compared to that of the other cities.   

     The students of VES had a "real life" experience as they witnessed history in the making. The looks on their faces - PRICELESS!
