GRFA in Lafayette for Louisiana A+ Schools

The Second Annual LAA+ Summer Institute

We are delighted to share that our second annual Louisiana A+ Schools Summer Institute is underway! Educators from all nine of our A+ Schools have gathered at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette for an intensive professional development in arts integration.

So what do you get when you bring together over 400 Louisiana teachers and the Eight Essentials of the LAA+ Schools program? You get an exciting professional development bursting with creative energy and workshops designed to integrate arts into all parts of curriculum. Through arts integration, our A+ teachers will help transform their schools into thriving institutions where students have the confidence and creativity to meet the challenges of the 21st century. We are inspired by their enthusiasm and passion for education and look forward to working with them more as they embark on a new academic year as part of the Louisiana A+ School network.

Be sure to watch the fun as it happens! Follow the LAA+ Summer Institute on Twitter at #aplusla and @APlusLA!

A Night to Support GRFA and LAA+

On July 17th, Dr. and Mrs. Joseph Savoie hosted a fundraiser at their home on the campus of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Thank you to the friends and supporters who gathered to raise funds for GRFA and the Louisiana A+ Schools program. We are especially grateful to Chevron for their official sponsorship of the event and the LAA+ Summer Institute! Because of their support, we are able to continue our mission to impact youth development through the arts. Thank you!

Representatives from Chevron present a check for $50,000 to GRFA Executive Director Jacques Rodrigue at July 17th fundraiser.
