Young Audiences Charter Schools at Lawrence D. Crocker to Hold Hispanic Heritage Parade Friday, September 22

Hispanic Heritage Month celebration will feature a parade with costumes, music, art and more!


WHAT:        Young Audiences Charter School (YACS) at Lawrence D. Crocker (grades PK4-8), an open enrollment, arts-integrated school in Uptown New Orleans, will hold a Hispanic Heritage Parade in honor of Hispanic Heritage month. 

The students will showcase various countries in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month and will be in either colors, t-shirts, traditional attire, or something to represent the country. The event will include music, dancing, art exhibits and more. Parade attendees will line up on the sidewalk and help celebrate our Hispanic students and learners. 

WHEN:       Friday, September 22, 2:45 – 3:15 p.m.

WHERE:    Young Audiences Charter School (YACS) at Lawrence D. Crocker

                   2301 Marengo St., New Orleans, LA 

The parade will begin at the school and extend around the 4 blocks of the school’s perimeter between Lasalle, Marengo, General Taylor, and S. Liberty Streets. 



Opened in 2013, Young Audiences Charter Schools are open enrollment, arts-integrated charter schools operating in Jefferson and Orleans Parish.  Recent research shows that students at schools with an arts-integrated curriculum scored higher on standardized tests and academic measures than those at other types of schools, including academic magnet schools. (PAIR, 2013) Additionally, students involved in the arts have better attendance, fewer behavior referrals, increased class participation, and are more likely to report a love of learning.
