Hey boys, how about your dad?  I love you guys so much.  You can accomplish anything in life you're willing to work for, right? ~ Drew Brees (After setting the all-time NFL mark for passing yards, Drew has a brief conversation with his three sons.)

Reflecting on Last Week 

  • Channel 33, WVLA, will be highlighting our STEM programs at Bains Lower and WFMS.  A special thanks goes to meteorologist, Danielle Uliano, who spent several hours with our schools.  Both stories will air on Sunday evening after Sunday Night Football on NBC.  The Sunday Evening show is the highest rated news show of the week for Channel 33 so we are fortunate.

Food for Thought

The West Feliciana Educational Foundation Annual Dodgeball Tournament was a HIT.  Seriously, I was HIT by so many dodgeballs!  The this event is the foundation's largest fundraiser of the year.  We are fortunate to have a group like the WFEF that goes above and beyond to support our school system.  Its not what you get--its what you give. This event demonstrates why #WEAREWESTFEL!
