The Parkview Baptist 7th graders participated in the First Annual Louisiana Festival. A fun-filled day with nothing but Louisiana on their minds. They began the day with a trivia competition where they got a chance to show off their knowledge of Louisiana History. Then they got to enjoy the taste of Louisiana with delicious authentic dishes made by Chef KD. Next, they got to hear from Conservationist David Cresson from CCA Louisiana. He spoke with the kids about our coast and how to be good stewards of the resources that we have been blessed with. Several students came away with possible future professions to think about. From there they went to a five-block rotation with New Orleans snoballs, from The Snohouse on Jones Creek; Louisiana art, where they created a painting of a pelican; dance, where they learned to Fais-do-do; a Louisiana spelling B, and finally a game station where they played games like pin the tooth on the gator and Cajun charades. They wrapped the day up with a crawfish peeling contest, hot sauce tasting challenge, and a spicy vegetable eat off. It was a great day to celebrate our unique and amazing state that our students will treasure for years to come.
