The Tools and Literacy for Children (TLC): Task Force program was developed to address the overall needs of at-risk children and families. TLC task force focuses on the physical, emotional, and educational needs of a selected area elementary school .The committee also provides many opportunities for the community and promotes education in Ouachita parish by planning and selecting the Mini-Grants for teachers.
Our committee will conduct several parent nights which highlight various services and also provides school supplies for all enrolled students. We are going to be busy ALL year long with back to school bashes, incentives for academics, parental involvement activities and over all supporting events throughout the year!
Each year the committee awards mini-grants to area teachers in the amount of $500 per grant. The grants are awarded in the fall so teachers will be able to implement their plans during the current school year. We are thankful for the support provided by League fund-raisers, particularly the Spring Market, which generates more dollars for our community project, such as mini-grants.
