On May 9 and May 10, 2023, Lafourche Parish Head Start had their first ever Pre-K Graduation Ceremonies. One for the Central Area which included students from South Lafourche, Lockport, Raceland, and Bayou Blue, and one for the Thibodaux Area. 

As a program, we strive to improve our students’ educational experiences and provide the highest quality preschool education. We have dedicated specific classrooms to prepare students for kindergarten. This led to a wonderful celebration of their accomplishments and sending them off to kindergarten. Lafourche Parish Head Start went all out with a red carpet, balloon décor, refreshments, caps and capes for the graduates, and the debut of our first mascot “Starbright”.  Parents also received sweet keepsakes which included yearbooks that were only created for graduates and personalized yard signs to display their child’s accomplishment of being a Lafourche Parish Head Start Graduate! 

Lafourche Parish Head Start would like to send a big thank you to our parents, businesses within our community that donated items for this event and a special thank you to Parish President Archie Chaisson, Parish Administrator Mitch Orgeron, Executive Director Brooke Huddleston, and the Lafourche Parish Council for all their support.
