Hundreds of parents and students along with school faculty and staff members from schools throughout LaSalle Parish gathered at Jena Elementary’s gymnasium for the annual LaSalle Parish Schools Parent Expo on Monday afternoon of last week. Dozens of booths were hosted by parish schools, services, area hospitals and others, providing a wide-range of information to parents and students. Free food and drinks were available, as well as various pamphlets and goodies from each booth and door prizes were drawn throughout the evening. Missy Bignar, Homeless Liaison for the LaSalle School System, expressed thanks to all those who provided booths and information, as well as a special thanks to all the parents and students who attended and took part in the event. Originally planned a week earlier, the event had to be cancelled because of inclement weather, and re-scheduled for Monday, January 25th.
