  • In Ms. Alisha Bennett's class, you can write on your desk!  Students work math problems on their computer while using the table to write out their answers.  A SHOUT OUT! goes to Ms. Bennett for writing a grant to the West Feliciana Education Foundation to fund such an innovative way to help her students.

  • In Ms. Kriston Patton's Keyboarding class for high school credit, students stay engaged through the use of a Que.  What is a Que?  A Que is dodge ball that has a microphone inside that students pass around as it gives them the voice to ask questions, answer questions, lead, and discuss within the classroom.
