September 2017 OPSB Highlights

This school year has started off with some great motivational and inspirational events and activities in the community. As we all focus on working together, it's important to also show our youth that we are here for them. I was asked to participate in a Career and College Conference this past Saturday, and wanted to share the message with you:

Let Go... Be Great and Lead!  

Let go & have faith... we must let go of our past that hasn't allowed you to fly. Also let go of the predisposed belief you or others have about you. We are going to shed others untruths about us! 

Be Great in your faith... Must first Have faith, faith of at least a muster seed, and last work hard to manifest your faith. 

Lead by faith... We have all been called to lead in some form or fashion. Our life has meaning and purpose. So, be bold and lead from your lane, whether that's in college, studying, or in the workplace on your career path. Let your faith in and relationship with God keep you. 

Say it with me... I'm going to Let Go...Be Great and Lead!

 The School Board unanimously passed the "It’s Your Right" policy. Nuestra Voz NOLA is a Latino parent advocacy organization that seeks to build the capacity of parents as advocates to ensure that children have access to great schools. Their hard work to bring this policy to the table, is a great example for our entire community.
