Thank you McKinney Food Services
McKinney Food Services out of Hughes Springs Texas graciously donated tokens for students and teachers at Apollo Elementary to receive complimentary food and drinks from their booths at the State Fair of Louisiana. McKinney has been in business since the 1920s and is longstanding fair favorite. Students from Mrs. Burks, Mrs. Hunter, Mrs. Warren, and Mrs. Feeback's classes were at the fair for a monthly Community Based Instruction trip where they learned about animals, Louisiana history and culture, and participated in educational activities and games. Thank you so much to McKinney for the generous donation! The food was wonderful!

An Act of Kindness
Analena Pearcy and her dad participated in a painting day at Central Park Elementary. Major Pearcy and Analena provided 3 1/2 hours of his time painting our wooden structures around our playground area. This area not only serves the children at Central Park Elementary, but also the surrounding neighborhood families. The neighborhood uses these facilities to watch their children play in a safe environment as well as host birthday parties and family gatherings under our pavilion. Analena made this area a nice place to spend this valuable family time.
Apollo Student has the Entrepreneur Spirit!
Apollo first grade student, Daisie Mabry, is a true entrepreneur! She set up her very own lemonade stand at the Farmer's Market in Shreveport. Her principal, Julie Dupree, stopped to purchase a glass of her delicious lemonade.

KNOW SOMEONE WHO DESERVES A GOLD STAR?
There are plenty of them at Bossier Schools. You know the ones. Those who go above and beyond the call of duty. Those whose actions exceed their job description.
There is no question the employees of Bossier Schools are what set our school system apart. From teachers and custodians to food service workers and counselors, they are all an important part of the Bossier Schools family and we want to recognize the ones who deserve a gold star.
Last year, nine “Gold Stars” were singled out and awarded. Now, we are ready to do it for a second year, thanks again to the gracious support of Bossier Federal Credit Union.
Here’s how it works. If you would like to recognize someone as a “Gold Star” award recipient, nominate them!
When you go to www.BossierSchools.org just click on the gold star at the top of the home page.
It does not matter if you are a parent, colleague or community member. Anyone can nominate a Bossier Schools employee to be a “Gold Star.” Each month new entries will be accepted and judged by a committee. So keep nominating those that are deserving of a special pat on the back.
Let us hear from you who deserves the gold!
THANK YOU TO OUR CORPORATE SPONSORS!
