Shannon Taylor Memorial Gets a Face Lift!

Scouts from Boy Scout Troop 346, Peace Lutheran Church- Slidell restored a community memorial on our campus as part of Kilian Schmit's Eagle Scout requirement. Kilian, a senior at Slidell High School, has achieved Scouting's highest honor of Eagle Scout. The Eagle Scout Award, has been awarded to young men for 100 years. Since 1912, only around 4 percent of Boy Scouts have earned this award. It is an important accomplishment.

As part of his requirement and community service project, Kilian asked Sixth Ward what the school needed to benefit the students. The restructuring and renovation of the Shannon Taylor Memorial was suggested. This memorial arbor is used each Christmas as the official greeting station for Santa's visit to Christmas Under the Oaks.

Under the supervision of Troopmaster Paul Manuel, Kilian and his brother Ryan, were joined by former SWE alumni Jason Walters, Anthony Bonnell, and Jeremy Stafford who all worked to repair the gazebo The scouts enclosed it with lattice work, sealed the existing framework and also created six new removable benches to replace the three original benches that were weather worn. All materials were donated from Lowe's Builder Center, Mike's Hardware and Home Depot. It took the boys approximately three weeks to complete this face-lift.

“This restoration will allow the students, parents and community of Sixth Ward to enjoy this gathering area during school events. I am glad I could give back to this community,” said Schmit, "It was an easy decision since the students appreciated the other benches around school that were provided by our troop. They, along with this arbor, will enable Sixth Ward's students to enjoy this beautiful campus and have a place for their many outside community events.”

Look around the campus for future Eagle projects Anthony, Jason and Jeremy! Congratulations to these young men and the achievements they have earned. If you are interested in Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts or Venture Scouts (which is scouting for boys and girls) please see Ms. Bonnell for more information, or email Paul Manual at scoutmaster346@yahoo.com.

Our Little Library

Northshore Community Foundation and 21st Century work together to provide our school community with a new Little Library. After receiving the Little Library kit and some books, 21st Century students worked hard building and painting the Library. It is now located in front of our school. Parents and students may stop by anytime and take a book or leave a book. Thank You Northshore Community Foundation and 21st Century.
