We are so proud to announce that FLAIM became a National Blue Ribbon Schoo September 28, 2017 !! We are among six schools across Louisiana to win and 329 across the country!
The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. Every year the U.S. Department of Education seeks out and celebrates great American schools; schools demonstrating that all students can achieve to high levels.
The National Blue Ribbon School award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content. The National Blue Ribbon School flag gracing an entry or flying overhead is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning.
FLAIM Runnning Club will start in October on Tuesday afternoons (3:45-4:45 PM) for ONLY those students who sign up for an approved race. To participate in Running Club in the fall, your child must be signed up for the Louisiana Kids Marathon. Please make a copy of your registration confirmation letter and send it in with your Running Club sign-up sheet.
