Come get a peek at school and meet your teacher before the big day. Parents and students are invited to visit classrooms during the Meet and Greet event. Teachers will be available to meet and greet and answer any questions you or your child may have.
This year Claiborne Elementary School will open the campus to the community the Friday before school starts for a brief Teacher Meet and Greet. The Teacher Meet and Greet was created to ease students' "First day of school jitters," and provide them with some peace of mind regarding knowing where their classroom is located, who their teacher is, where they will be sitting in class, drop off school supplies, etc.
Please stop by the school between the hour of 2:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. to learn who your child's teacher will be for the 2014-2015 school year and to take a quick tour of their classroom.

CLAIBORNE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL EARNS NATIONAL RECOGNITION FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND CONSERVATION
BATON ROUGE, LA – Claiborne Elementary School beat out thousands of other buildings across the nation to earn the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) annual Energy Star National Building Competition: Battle of the Buildings.
The competition, that is in support of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan, targets wasted energy in buildings and motivates building owners and occupants to improve energy efficiency, reduce harmful carbon pollution, and save money.
Competitors in this year’s National Building Competition collectively saved more than $20 million and reduced greenhouse emissions by more than 130,000 metric tons – equal to the annual electricity use of nearly 18,000 homes.
“When we save money on energy costs and increase energy efficiency, we all win,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. “I congratulate the competitors and finalists for their dedication to reducing emissions and carbon pollution and for their leadership in increasing energy efficiency to combat the impacts of our changing climate.”
“We are truly honored by this national recognition that reflects the hard work and dedication of our faculty, staff and most importantly our students. This recognition would not have been possible without Aramark, our partner in the overall effort to use our limited resources in a responsible and earth friendly manner,” said Stephanie M. Tate, principal of Claiborne Elementary School. “This was a real life lesson for our students, many of whom have adopted the energy conservation practices learned here for use in their own homes.”
Teams from more than 25 different types of commercial buildings faced off in this year’s Energy Star National Building Competition, representing all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Louisiana’s Implementation of Common Core State Standards
With the aim of providing educators and parents with a common understanding of what students are expected to learn and know, the Common Core State Standards are based on previous input from higher education leaders and employers as well as the most effective models in the country and across the world. Designed in collaboration with teachers and school administrators, the standards define the knowledge and skills students should acquire throughout their K-12 education careers in order to graduate from high school prepared to succeed in their post-secondary education and workforce pursuits. In Louisiana, the new standards will be fully implemented in the 2014-2015 school year”
