Join Dr. Brumley’s Morning Coffee Chat or Evening Town Hall November 7 in Kenner & Metairie

Jefferson Parish Public School System Superintendent Dr. Cade Brumley will continue his conversations with educators and the community by hosting a morning coffee chat and an evening town hall on Wednesday, November 7 in Kenner and Metairie.

The coffee chat will take place at Girard Playground at 5300 Irving Street in Metairie from 8 to 9 a.m. The town hall will be at Roosevelt Middle at 3315 Maine Avenue in Kenner from 5 to 6 p.m. These community meetings are part of nine Discovery Days Dr. Brumley is hosting throughout this school year.

The coffee chats and town halls bookend days Dr. Brumley will spend at a different school getting to know students, educators, and families. Schools were drawn at random by each board member. Each Discovery Day begins with coffee, followed by a learning-walk around the school, a meeting with that school’s principal, a meeting with faculty after school, and a town hall meeting that evening.

Community members are invited to the coffee chats and town halls to share their thoughts on five questions:

1. What are our strengths?
2. What are our challenges?
3. What should we start doing?
4. What should we stop doing?
5. What is possible?

Dr. Brumley originally hosted a Discovery Day in all nine JPPSS districts as part of his 100-day entry plan.
