Join Dr. Brumley’s Morning Coffee Chat or Evening Town Hall January 24 in Kenner

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 Thursday, January 24 in Kenner.

The coffee chat will take place at French Press Coffeehouse at 3236 Williams Blvd. in Kenner from 8 to 9 a.m. The town hall will be at Woods Elementary at 1037 31st Street 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.
