Choudrant Elementary had many exciting things going on since the last report and would like to share the following with our community.
D.E.A.R. Time at CES
Librarian Johnnie Simon and all other teachers at the school take the challenge of encouraging their students to become life-long readers.
They do this by, not only teaching them the skills they need, but also, by setting examples by putting aside time during the day to allow the students to read freely while seeing the teachers read themselves.
Ruston residents will have the chance to take a nice stroll or run through the neighborhood South of California Avenue on Saturday morning.
The fourth annual SOCA 5K Walk/Sprint is set to take off at 9:30 a.m. Saturday.
Registration, which is $25 for individuals and $100 for a five-person team, begins at 8:30 a.m. at Mays Chapel Church, which is where the race will begin. That registration will include lunch and a T-shirt.
The Annual Downtown Howl’oween event, which was originally set to kick off at 4 p.m. today, has been cancelled due to inclement weather.
Kristi Lumpkin, economic development administrator, said while the weather may clear, the city didn’t want to take a chance.
“We were hoping for the best,” Lumpkin said. “While the rain may still clear out early afternoon, we feel conditions will be too wet for Downtown Howl’oween activities. I really appreciate your willingness to participate, and we look forward to next year.”
