If the Village of Choudrant’s 2013 and 2014 funding year applications are successful, three streets in the village could see upgrades in the coming years.
On Monday night, council members voted unanimously — with the exception of Reagan Aswell, who was absent — to adopt a resolution allowing the village to make an application for a Louisiana Community Development Block Grant.
Ruston High School will hold its 2010-11 Prep Days from 8:30-11 a.m. Aug. 9-12, in the girls’ gym.
Each grade will have a designated Prep Day during this week. On Aug. 9, all seniors should report to the girls’ gym and be prepared to pay the homeroom fee ($15), pay debts from last year and pick up class schedules. Juniors will report on Aug. 10 and sophomores on Aug. 11. Juniors and sophomores must also be prepared to pay the $15 homeroom fee and any existing debts.
Prep Day for incoming freshmen will be Aug. 12. In addition to paying the $15 homeroom fee and picking up class schedules, freshmen will have their ID picture made, so they will need to wear their RHS school uniform shirt. Any debt from Ruston Junior High School must be paid before a student will be allowed to participate in Prep Week. Any student who does not pay the $15 homeroom fee or pay an existing debt will not be given a class schedule.
