Grant Awarded

Two Creekside Jr. High teachers have been awarded a grant from the St. Tammany Federal Credit Union for a project they call "Restoring Our Roots." The project will be cross-curricularly administered by Lynn Danjean, a certified and highly qualified science teacher and Laura Aysen, a certified and highly qualified social studies teacher with the support of Louisiana Coastal Roots, a coastal habitat restoration project affiliated with Louisiana State University. Through this project, students will survey and identify the need for restoration of our coastal habitats.  Then they will then create and maintain a nursery where they will cultivate and nurture two native tree species to a sustainable age, then plant saplings in a restoration habitat and produce a video documentary of the process.
