The Story

Katharine Drexel Elementary, a public school in Broussard Louisiana, is a pre-K-fifth grade school that is part of the Lafayette Parish School system. It is home to over 500 students from Broussard and the surrounding south Lafayette area. Most importantly, all members of Katharine Drexel’s faculty and staff understand and are dedicated to creating life-long learners by providing quality education in a safe environment for all students. As their motto states: I learn now so I can succeed later, because there is nothing greater than a Drexel Gator!

The school hopes to use funds raised through this campaign to purchase a much needed digital sign. This new signage will help them to better communicate with parents and the community. It is hoped that the increased communication through the new sign will lead to higher parent involvement with their student’s education. Donate now for new outdoor signage that is easy to update and helps share information!

Progress |

Thanks to all who have already donated!  Once the story was posted we had parents from past classes tell us about the current sign.  It is 30 years old and the money was raised by the parent committee. The current sign is slide on letters and very faded!   It is definitely time for a new, and digital, sign!

Making Progress |

Congratulations!  Together we made it to the 25% mark.  We are currently getting bids for the new sign.  Lafayette Parish School System has a "Matching Grant" program which will help us to have the full amount needed for the sign.  We know we cannot raise all of the money here, but we still need donors!  Right now we are focusing on teachers and parents.  We are asking that anyone who has interest in Katharine Drexel or the community of Broussard give a donation of any amount!  Thanks!
