J.W. Faulk Elementary is a school that we know and love.
So much so that the “Love Our Schools” initiative, will show the Upper Lafayette school, its students, and its staff, like counselor Miriam Rogers, an immense amount of love on July 13th.
“It means a lot that people in our community pay attention to our school,” says Rogers. “That they’re coming to our school to help us revamp it.”
At the school’s location on Willow and Louisiana Avenue, there are doors to be painted, benches and posts to be revitalized, and walls and framing that could simply use a little extra tender loving care.
“The project will bring a sense of pride to me and to our students as well,” says Rogers. “That’s okay, that our school looks a little different and that we’re getting an upgrade.”
Acadian Middle School, Alice N. Boucher Elementary School, Carencro Heights Elementary School, Carencro High School, J.W. Faulk Elementary School, Lafayette Middle School, LeRosen Preparatory School, and Northside High School will all share in the love this summer.
Thousands of volunteers will descend upon these eight Lafayette Schools on July 13 with plans to beautify, renovate, and restore. And the Love Our Schools Foundation says there is absolutely something for everyone, whether it involves a paintbrush, a broom or a shovel.
It’ll be easy to get involved and make a difference and to show some love for schools like J.W. Faulk.
“We’re a great school,” says Rogers. “We work hard, we love our students and we love each other. We are a community.”
Everyone and anyone can help on July 13. To see what projects will be happening at the different schools and to sign up visit the Love Our Schools website at www.loveourschoolsfoundation.org.
Last week, KATC’s Abby Breidenbach previewed the work that will be undertaken at Lafayette Middle School during the Love Our Schools project.
