Mrs. Jindal visited the Northwestern Elementary kindergarten classroom of Ms. Joubert on Thursday, Sept. 6, to see the students in action.
The School Surprise Program was created based on input from teachers about how to enhance the classroom environment. The Program seeks to provide kindergarten students hands-on interactive tools that teachers identify as integral to their kindergarten classrooms and their students’ success.
Mrs. Jindal's staff randomly selected the classroom for the visit.
Each of the NES kindergarten teachers received a $500 grant to purchase hands-on tools for their classroom centers from the Foundation.
The Supriya Jindal Foundation partnered with the AT&T Foundation to purchase these items. AT&T representatives were also on hand, as well as Mayor David Amrhein, Metro Councilman Trae Welch, Zachary City Councilman Brandon Noel, Police Chief David McDavid and interim Superintendent Gordon Robertson. All interacted with Jobert's class.
Mrs. Jindal visit with the students and read the book "Corduroy" to the class.
