Helping Hearts Overview 2015-2016


What Makes Bossier Schools Special?

Many things. For one, our employees are exemplary and their dedication, unparalleled. Every day they strive to not only educate, but also motivate and inspire students to achieve their greatest potential. A supportive community is also key to Bossier Schools’ success. The citizens of our great parish recognize the vitality of a community goes hand in hand with a strong public school system, resulting in Bossier being named one of the fastest growing school districts in Louisiana. What really sets Bossier Schools apart, though, is the relentless desire of our staff and students to serve others.

"Helping Hearts: The Power of We" is just one example of how Bossier Schools pays it forward. For the past three years, each of our schools and centers have chosen various ways to help people, organizations and groups in need, both locally and abroad. A culmination of our efforts in 2015-16 can be seen in the video above. As you will see, while there is power in you and me, there is even greater power in we.

Our intentions at Bossier Schools are simply this; to be kind to and help one another; to make a difference in the world in which we live; and, at the same time, model to the children entrusted in our care the importance of serving our community. After all, character education is not a lesson that can be taught from a textbook. It is best learned by actions, not words. That is "Helping Hearts: The Power of We."
