Celebrating Academic Success with “A” Lunch of Champions April 16 & 17

Jefferson Parish Schools will honor some of its highest performing students during the Superintendent’s “A” Lunch of Champions April 16 and 17 at the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner. Both lunches will begin at 12:30 p.m. and end approximately at 2:30 p.m.

Over 2,000 students will be honored at the annual event. Formerly a breakfast event held at JP schools, the district is enhancing the ceremony and moving it to the Pontchartrain Center this year. United Way of Southeast Louisiana CEO Michael Williamson will be the guest speaker.

The event recognizes outstanding academic accomplishments for students who have earned an “A” in each course taken and no lower than a “B” in honor courses taken during the first, second, and third nine-weeks marking periods. Those students and their families are invited to attend the lunch ceremony.
