The students will share their signs in a march around the Lopez Campus. All MJCS students will attend in support of the first graders and their introduction to social awareness.

 WHEN:    Thursday, October 12, 2-3pm

WHERE:   Morris Jeff Community School – Lopez Campus

                  211 S Lopez St, New Orleans, LA  70119

WHY: Morris Jeff Community School’s IB Primary Years Programme marks the start of a lifelong journey that develops caring and culturally aware children aged 3 – 12 to become active participants in their own learning. Morris Jeff Community School is the only Louisiana school to offer all 3 International Baccalaureate (IB) Programmes – Primary Years (PYP), Middle Years (MYP) and Diploma (DP). The PYP and MYP build academic, social and learning skills in students to prepare them for the challenge of the IB Diploma.  Morris Jeff juniors and seniors can pursue the full IB Diploma. Research shows that students with IB diplomas graduate earlier than their peers and maintain higher GPAs than non-IB students.

This event is closed to the public. Media are invited to attend.


Morris Jeff Community School is a top-performing, open-admissions, PK-12 public charter school serving more than 1,400 students in Orleans Parish. Morris Jeff is Louisiana’s only PK-12 International Baccalaureate (IB) World School.
