She’s no stranger to the campus but she is new in the principal seat! Congratulations to Ashley Atkins for being named interim principal at University Elementary. She has been with the district for nearly ten years where she started as an elementary teacher at Oil City. She has also served Caddo students at North Caddo Elementary Middle School, Caddo Middle Career & Technology and then Midway Elementary as a master teacher. She joined the administration team at University in 2019 as an assistant principal. Atkins earned her bachelor's and master's degrees from Centenary College. She replaces Kasie Mainiero as Mainiero transitions to a role to support children and programs across the district. Let’s give Ashley Atkins a warm wildcat welcome to her new role!

Congratulations to these Caddo educators on receiving the Simple Science Grant awarded by the LSU Health Science Center. This grant helps classrooms with funding to enhance science curriculum. Our teachers plan to use these funds toward science fairs, books and supplies, live specimens and other resources. Thank you LSU Health for offering this opportunity to our classrooms!
