Louisiana Cultural Arts

Marigny Elementary celebrated the variety of cultural arts enjoyed throughout Louisiana including music, visual arts, and dance with a special program April 20 spotlighting fish and wildlife native to Louisiana, Cajun music and culture, seafood culinary delights, and even snowballs, a local summer treat.

Students engaged in a variety of educational and fun activities, everything from taking part in “Sportsman Paradise” fishing, biking and camping to digging for crawfish, making clothespin alligators, and dancing to Zydeco music. A special appearance by Delta Dolphin and Salty the Pelican were especially appreciated.

Sheriff’s Deputy Howard McCrea visited Marigny Elementary on April 19 with baby alligators and the students had the opportunity to hold them.

Bridget Martinez, chairman of the Marigny event, said it brought together 50 parent volunteers with several outside agencies to help the children become more aware of local cultural arts opportunities. “The community response was great,” she said, naming participants such as the Northlake Nature Center, the Mandeville branch of the parish library, the Corps of Engineers, La. Wildlife and Fisheries, and others.

“The kids were definitely engaged with the many interactive and age-appropriate activities we had available,” Ms. Martinez stated. “Every student was able to participate.”
