"Raising a Community of Readers"


Literacy Projects




 “Authors Are OUR Rock Stars”


Mrs. Picheloup, together with Loreauville High School’s English Department, launched a collaborative effort to promote reading with their students.  Librarian and teachers wore t-shirts to begin the conversation about literacy with Edgar Allan Poe and the raven.  On the back of the shirts, a reference to “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen acknowledges lyrics (poetry) as literacy also.  Avid readers also joined in the endeavor.  More literacy projects are planned through the year to encourage reading and learning.  Pictured are Mrs. Fran, Mrs. Picheloup, Garrett, Alison, Jarayha and Ms. Domingue.

            Loreauville High School students and LHS librarian, Charlene Picheloup, recently worked on a project that included activities, discussions and debates on widely censored books and their "freedom to read."  A library display was created to raise awareness that showcased many titles with a cautionary theme.  Leading the project were, front row, from left, Brailyn Richard, Jarayha Jeanlouis and Krystyne Latiolais; middle row, Sloane Judice, Brittany Haycock, Hannah Gaudet, and Asia Jackson, and back row, Kimberly Hubertus, Garrett Ledford and Selena Mitchell.  Teachers guiding the project were Carlene Domingue and Sheila Cestia.  Featured in The Daily Iberian on October 26th.
