Welcome Back Macaroni Parents   We are becoming more and more excited about the holidays with each passing day. And today our cup almost runneth over because we are able to launch the Help A Family In Need Giveaway! Thanks to our amazing sponsors: Acadiana Bottling and Acadian Total Security we are able to award a family who truly needs it a $500 gift card to shop for gifts and another $100 gift card to shop for the holiday meal. If you would like to nominate either your family or a family you know please click here to do so. 

Gold Daisy School Contest is in full force! We feel like this is the best time to show our teachers and administration how much we appreciate them and all the extra hard work they have had to pull off during the COVID 19 pandemic. The concept is simple, you vote for your favorite school and the school with the most votes wins a fully catered lunch for their teachers and staff. Who loves their school the most? Click here to vote! We have extended voting through November 25th. 

Current Standings:

1 - Milton Elementary

2 - Carencro Heights Elementary
