Hello Governor
Luling Elementary 3rd grade students got the chance to visit the governor’s home in Baton Rouge during a recent field trip.

The first stop was the governor's mansion, home of the head of the executive branch, Governor Bobby Jindal. From there, the group were off to the new state capitol. 


In addition to learning the history of the building and the story of Heuy P. Long, they toured the observation deck on the 27th floor.


From that vantage point, they got a bird's eye view of the Mississippi river, a great lead into their study of the maps of Louisiana.


They concluded the day with a stop at the old state capitol building.  Here they were able to learn even more about Louisiana’s government and history. 


The trip was educational for students, teachers and parents alike.

Veronica Roth, author of Divergent, creates a perfectly balanced and structured society that consists of five groups divided strictly on how the brain works: Abnegation, Erudite, Dauntless, Amity, and Candor. At age sixteen, all members of the society have to choose which faction they will live in to begin their journey as adults. A mind stimulation is given to each inductee before the Choosing Ceremony to help determine where they would be most fit.
