- Fourth graders collect used eyeglasses as their service project each year, turning them over to the LaPlace Lions Club to help them provide corrective lenses to people in developing countries in their Recycle for Sight program. This service enables many in developing countries to see well for the first time. Kennedi Miller, from left, Joshua Laugand, Claude Remondet and Baileigh Tregre inspected donated glasses before packaging them up to the Lions Club.
The kindergarten class was visited recently by Amanda Arcuri, Amanda Fertitta, and Lexi Musso, students from LSU Dental Hygiene School. They spoke about why they should brush and floss their teeth and what they should do and not do to keep their mouths healthy. Fertitta, standing, demonstrated how to brush properly and allowed the children to practice on a large set of teeth. She is pictured helping Brooklyn Williams.
