Letter from the Principal

  • Dear Meraux Families,


    Wow! I can’t believe another school year has come to an end! It has been a great year for our Meraux Bees despite the changes and challenges brought upon us by COVID-19. Our students, faculty, and staff have demonstrated resilience, flexibility, and grit. A special thank you goes out to our parents and families who have supported our students and school. We certainly could not have done it without you!


    As we move into the summer months be sure that your child is reading at least 20 minutes each day. The library at Davies Elementary will be open from June 3- June 29 (Mondays-Fridays) from 8:15am-12:45pm to check out books and take ARP tests. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Certificates will be awarded at the end of the summer session for ARP. This summer program is a summer session and is not linked to the start of the school year.


    Students entering 3rd through 5th grades are asked to read one or more novels from the list that was attached to their report card. Upon returning to school in August, students will complete their summer reading log and take ARP test(s) on the books they read over the summer. Extra credit for the 2021-2022 school year will be awarded for successful completion of the reading log and ARP test(s).


    Have a safe, healthy, fun, and relaxing summer! Be on the lookout for the summer mail-out with important Back-to-School information in July. If I can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to call or email me. I can be reached at (504)556-0900 or nalbers@sbpsb.org.
     
    Sincerely, 
    Natalie C. Albers

  • Learning about Ancient Greek Civilization and Greek Mythology in the 2nd Grade

    Learning about Ancient Greek Civilization and Greek Mythology in the 2nd Grade

    The second graders at Arlene Meraux Elementary learned about Ancient Greek Civilization and Greek Mythology. Students enjoyed learning about the Spartan Army, Greek gods and goddesses, mythical animals such as the Minotaur, Sphinx, and the Nemean Lion, and about the Olympic Games. The second-grade teachers hosted the Second Grade Olympic Games. Students enjoyed competing against each other in chariot races and foot races. Students also created their own web-like Arachne the weaver. Students ended the day by running through the labyrinth and dressing up like Greek characters. Arlene Meraux Elementary students love to learn and are engaging in their education.

  • 2nd Grade Fairy Tales and Tall Tales Day

    2nd Grade Fairy Tales and Tall Tales Day

    The second graders at Arlene Meraux Elementary learned about fairy tales and tall tales for the first few weeks of school. Students enjoyed talking about fairy tales such as "The Fisherman and his Wife," "Beauty and the Beast," and "The Emperor's New Clothes." They also enjoyed some exaggerations from the tall tales in this unit such as "Paul Bunyan," "Casey Jones," "John Henry,' and "Pecos Bill." Students were able to dress up as their favorite tall tale or fairy tale character. They presented to the class who they were and a summary of their story. After lunch, students participated in Fairy Tale and Tall Tale centers. Students ate pancakes similar to the colossal flapjacks Paul Bunyan and Babe ate to keep them logging. They created a train track like the one Casey Jones drove his "Iron Horse" on. Students also designed a mural from their favorite fairy tale. The students ended their centers with a fairy tale or a tall tale of their choosing. Arlene Meraux Elementary students love to learn and are engaging in their education.
