#BelieveTheHype - Happy Thanksgiving!


Milton's Monday Message 


November 20 & 27, 2017  

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more.  If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever, have enough.

~ Oprah Winfrey

Food for Thought


  • I hope that everyone gets an opportunity to spend quality time with their family over Thanksgivng and has a moment to refect on what they are grateful for in life.  I am very thankful that my family has had the opportunity to make our home in West Feliciana and that my children are growing up in such a tight knit community and are taught and served by the best teachers and the best employees. I am also thankful that I have an incredible opportunity to lead the best school district in the state of Louisiana.  Let's continue to work together to make this wonderful place even better.
