"They had no clue where they were standing." Do YOU know where we're standing? This is Historic ground, and we are making history once again! Not only are we finishing the march - We have a Proud Lion at the helm! #WhatsBetterThanALion? #AlwaysALion

What a WEDNESDAY! We have an ART CONTEST announcement! Let's do it FOR THE CULTURE! In recognition of the 60th Anniversary of the BTW Student March and Hispanic Heritage Month, we want to celebrate and represent CULTURE. Submit your works to Mrs. Whitaker-Nelson in the Library! We're building our Art Break collection NOW! #WhatsBetterThanALion?
Today is NATIONAL VOTER REGISTRATION DAY! Voting is a key part of the American Experience, but it has not always been easy for all Americans to partake of this right. Dr. King even came to Shreveport and spoke on the matter at Galilee Baptist Church in 1958! It's important that we appreciate and USE this right! #WhatsBetterThanALion?
One way we can celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month is by stopping by the library to explore literature and history! Today's Feature: Cuba 15 is a novel about Violet Paz who has just turned fifteen, a pivotal birthday in the eyes of her Cuban grandmother. Fifteen is the age when a girl enters womanhood, traditionally celebrating the occasion with a quinceañero. While Violet is half Cuban, she’s also half Polish, and more importantly, she feels 100% American. Stop by to see how Violet navigates this time in her life! #ReadersAreLeaders #WhatsBetterThanALion? #HispanicHeritageMonth
STUDENTS! Not sure what to do after the final bell? Sign up for the Lighthouse Afterschool Program! #WhatsBetterThanALion?
