100 Meter Results

Nick Donnell scored more points than any other student for his Fifth Ward team in both the track and the field competitions. Nick broke two long standing school records for his running times. In the 100 meter dash, he broke the record from 1998 by .60 seconds, and in the 200 meter run, he broke the record from 2003 by .10 seconds.  He was named school MVP in both track and field, as well as St. Tammany Parish District III track MVP. Nick’s name and running times will be placed on the school plaque.

Christmas Cards

l

Fifth Ward recently created and mailed Christmas cards to our soldiers overseas.  This was a special moment as several faculty members have family members serving abroad. One recipient's mother said, “This project means a lot to the soldiers that are overseas.  Many of them do not receive anything from anyone.  That is very disheartening.  As many of you know, my son, Scott, is in Kuwait at this very moment.  If things go as planned, he will return to U.S. soil at the end of this week. -- Thank you again for all those who allowed their students to make cards for our soldiers. I really appreciate your kindness and compassion.”
