Savoie, Banking Officer/Marketing Administrator, Synergy Bank; and Katie Portier, Marketing Associate, Synergy Bank take a moment to show the supplies donated to the Terrebonne Parish School District.

 

 

Pack the Bus is a donation drive throughout Terrebonne and Lafourche Parishes sponsored by Synergy Bank and the United Way for South Louisiana for the purpose of collecting school supplies for families in need in both parishes.  Collection bins were set up throughout Terrebonne and Lafourche.  The school districts receive the supplies and use their own system of distribution.  The total estimated cost of the items that Terrebonne Parish received was $4,750.00.

 


 

School supplies are first provided to non-homeless families needing assistance in the Terrebonne Parish School District.  The remaining school supplies are then distributed to our 4 high schools, 3 junior high schools, 6 middle schools, and 4 of our elementary schools.

 

The Terrebonne Parish School District would like to thank all of the citizens who donated to this cause.  It is a great support of the students in Terrebonne Parish!

 

Many students will benefit from this great contribution!

Coteau-Bayou Blue Elementary School held field day on May 12th. The principal, Mrs. Tess Daigle, along with a parent volunteer, Mrs. Sara Mestar, enjoyed competing against 6th graders in the "Hungry, Hungry Human" game. 

 

~ Source Wikipedia.com~

Hungry Hungry Hippos is a tabletop game made for 2–4 players, produced by Hasbro, under the brand of its subsidiary, Milton Bradley. The idea for the game was published in 1967 by toy inventor Fred Kroll and it was introduced in 1978. The objective of the game is for each player to collect as many marbles as possible with their 'hippo' (a toy hippo model).

 

The game board is surrounded by four mechanical, colorful, plastic hippopotamuses operated by levers on their backs. When the lever is pressed, the hippo opens its mouth and extends its head forwards on a telescopic neck. When the lever is released, the head comes down and retracts. Colored plastic marbles are dispensed into the board by each player, and the players repeatedly press the lever on their hippo in order to have it "eat" the marbles, which travel down from under the hippo into a small scoring area for each player. Once all marbles have been captured, the player who has collected the most is the winner.

Village East School held its inaugural Village East Alumni Senior Walk. Graduating Seniors from Ellender Memorial High School and South Terrebonne High School were invited to take a walk through the halls of Village East, as the current students cheered them on and congratulated them on reaching this milestone in their lives. The Village East students were inspired as the seniors told of their plans after high school, shared their favorite memories of Village East, and offered words of advice to the younger students. The teachers were able to enjoy seeing that their efforts with the students do yield very positive results in the lives of the children they teach. The teachers felt very encouraged and had renewed energy after leaving the assembly. The seniors thanked the teachers for being there for them when they were younger. The current students couldn't wait to get back in class to tell their teachers what they want to do when they grow up and get to be the ones being celebrated for graduating.

New York Jets Running Back, and Village East Alumni, Elijah McGuire visited the students at Village East School on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, the eve of the NFL Draft.  He spoke to the students about the importance of testing and encouraged the students to always make good choices and follow their dreams.

 

The students were excited and inspired by being able to see someone that had walked the very halls and sat in the same classrooms, that they are in now,  be able to fulfill a lifelong dream of making it to the NFL. He provided a great example to the students of not letting your current circumstances define what your future can become. "Great things come from the Village."

 

The students and faculty wished him continued success and are excited about testing that is taking place this week.

In their annual review of the nation’s 22,000 high schools, U.S. News and World Report named Terrebonne High a bronze medal school and rated THS as one of the nation’s leading high schools.  Only the top 30% of the nation’s high schools receive this distinction from the magazine.  Terrebonne High was ranked 30th in schools in Louisiana out-ranking all the other high schools in Terrebonne Parish and the surrounding parishes of Lafourche and St. Charles.  Criteria used for judging schools included a high graduation rate, college preparedness (number of AP courses offered and high ACT scores), the performance of minority students and low-income students as compared to those nationally, and that students at Terrebonne High outperform both the district and state on EOC tests in English and Math.  We are proud of the great work of our faculty and student body at THS in achieving this national recognition.

Four football player sign with colleges
By Chris Singleton
Staff Writer

 

Terrebonne High football coach Gary Hill spent most of his Thursday morning leading a signing ceremony for four of his football players and their families.

 

The signees were receiver Tristan Duplantis with the University of Saint Mary in Leavenworth, Kan., linebacker Jean-Francois Kouame with Southwestern College in Winfield, Kan., defensive end/linebacker Cannan Harris with Texas A& T College in Houston and linebacker Deshon Frye with Southern Prep College of Baton Rouge.

 

While it was hectic having four players sign on the same day in Terrebonne’s cafeteria, Hill said he enjoyed every moment of it.


"It was a busy morning, but well-deserved for all four of them," Hill said. "They all worked hard. They all sacrificed through adversity. They all did a great job of keeping their grades. For them to sign here and move on to represent Terrebonne.

 

Terrebonne football players Jean-Francois Kouame (from left), Deshon Frye, Tristan Duplantis and Cannan Harris all signed national letters-of-intent on Thursday.

 

in the future is a blessing. We’re very proud to have them. Hopefully they will come back and contribute to the community one day."


Duplantis signed a $60,000 football scholarship to play for NAIA-college Saint Mary. He said it was his only offer to play football.


"Everything is open over there," Duplantis said. "I’ll have a great opportunity to compete for a spot, so I’ll have a chance to play as a freshman, so I’m excited."


Duplantis was a key player in Terrebonne’s offense, finishing his senior year with 15 catches for 244 yards and four touchdowns. He is ready to show what he can do in college.

"When I go there, I’m going to be ready to roll," Duplantis said. "I’m going to try my best to ball out. That’s all I can do."
Kouame also stood out in the classroom. His efforts helped him receive a $72,000 football and academic scholarship to NAIA-school Southwestern College.


"It’s a privilege and an honor. I never thought this was going to happen," Kouame said. "I thought it was going to be academics, but then they talked to me and wanted me to play football, so I’m just very blessed to have the opportunity."
It was the only football offer for Kouame, who wrapped up his senior year with 38 tackles (32 solo, six assists, 6.3 tackles per game and three tackles for a loss.

 

"The (Southwestern) coaches liked how I’m aggressive off the ball and how I can find the ball everywhere," Kouame said. "Right now. I’m constantly working out and getting stronger. I’m trying to get in shape so I can do what they want me to do up there."


Harris, who played defensive end at Terrebonne but will spend time at linebacker in college, said he was fortunate to get an offer from Texas A& T, which is a two-year college. He will join Terrebonne linebacker Bryson Morgan, who signed with Texas A& T in February.

 

"It’s a blessing. No other school really reached out to me to give me a chance," said Harris, who played most of his senior season with a foot injury. "When I went visit A& T, it felt like home."


Despite injury, Harris (5-10, 250-pounds) still made the most of his time with the Tigers, finished with 42 tackles (31 solo), one sack, one fumble recovery and two quarterback hurries.
"Going to Texas is a different ballgame," Harris said. "They got different athletes in Texas. I got a chip on my shoulder. It won’t come easy. I’m going to grind."

 

Despite knee injuries that sidelined him as a sophomore and junior, Frye contributed to the Tigers defense with more than 15 tackles.


"I came out my senior year and did what I had to do," Frye said. "I had to overcome a few things to get where I’m at, but I’m here."


Frye (5-10, 180-pounds) said he is blessed to have the chance to continue his athletic career with Southern Prep in Baton Rouge.

 

"It feels really good to sign because I didn’t have other opportunities to do so," Frye said. "When this opportunity came up, I jumped on it. It feels really good to be signing with someone. I’m excited."


Hill said it is a great accomplishment to have six senior football players (Duplantis, Kouame, Frye, Harris, Morgan and Nicholls State University offensive line signee Everett Rodrigue) move on to the next level.

 

"You can’t ask for more than that for those kids. They did what they had to do," Hill said "Just to get six kids out of here and give them the opportunity to open up more doors for the future is what this is all about. It’s about giving the kids chances to get out and better their life."

The Haven held its annual Spring Gala fundraiser this past weekend at the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center and many THS students and teachers volunteered their time to support the local charity.  The Haven is a non-profit that not only provides shelter for women and children who are victims of domestic abuse, but offers counseling services, school outreach and educational programs, and support to other families not residing in the shelter.  The Spring Gala fundraiser helps to assure that the doors of The Haven shelter remain open and their services continue.

 

THS Coach Marty Collins serves on the board of directors of The Haven and helped to organize the event.  Supervisor of Secondary Ed Mr. Graham Douglas was a "celebrity server" and THS faculty member Leah Gautreaux who serves as advisor to the Beta Club had her students volunteer to bus tables.

 

The THS Saxophone Quartet, directed by Vaughn Luquette and Austin Taylor, provided entertainment for guests as they entered the lobby.  The THS Saxophone Quartet are Jordan Porche, Mark Portier, Clint Rodgers, and Cade Lirette.

 

The THS Beta Club aided in set-up, bussed tables, served food, and helped with clean-up at the event.

The musical was based on the characters of the Scooby-Doo franchise and included several administrators, teachers and staff of South Terrebonne High School as characters in the production.

 

The story: Mr. Torbert, the principal, is missing and Dr. Madge Gautreaux and Mr. Kenneth Fountain, assistant principals, as well as the teachers and staff of STHS can't seem to find him. It seems the school is now being haunted by a Native American warrior ghost who claims to have taken Mr. Torbert. Enter the Mystery, Inc. gang to save the day. In the end, Sergeant Blake Guidry turns out to be the ghost and is acting under orders from Mr. Torbert to hide the fact that he (Mr. Torbert) has won the lottery, built an all-inclusive teacher only resort and is basking on the beach of a Caribbean island enjoying his new business venture and retirement.

The Terrebonne Parish School District recently asked those who could, to donate monetary donations, non-perishable foods, toiletries, and cleaning supplies to help victims of the recent Louisiana Floods.  The response was overwhelming.  Donations came in from employees, board members, students and members of the public.  Donations were also received from the Volleyball Jamboree held at Terrebonne High School.

 

The donations filled 2 1/2 pallets.  The items were taken to a collection center in Gonzales, Louisiana where they will be sorted and dispersed to needy families. 

 

The Center Director, Rebecca Parks, stated, "We get a little worried when our center gets low on goods, and then people like you call to say you have a donation, and we Thank God that Louisiana has such great people."  She went on to say that the center has also taken goods and donations from several other states as well.

 

TPSD would like to give special thanks to Ronald Labauve and Bluewater Rubber & Gasket Company of Houma and Baton Rouge for providing the transportation to get our supplies over to Gonzales.
