|Sign at new site|
When I was hired in 2006, PFTSTA was only two years old. The district promised that a building was going to be built for the new school. There have been no new schools built in Jefferson Parish in over 20 years. So this is a big deal. Originally, the move in date was for some time in 2009. That year came and went, but if you visit the site of the new school today you will see that the current 2013 move in date is a real possibility.

Yesterday, my husband and I were on the Westbank of Jefferson Parish. Both Orleans and Jefferson Parishes are divided by the Mississippi River. The new site of PFTSTA will be in Avondale across the river from New Orleans. We were eating lunch and watching traffic back up on the Crescent City Connection. We knew that to get home in a timely manner that we would need to take the other bridge, the Huey P. Long. At lunch, we decided that it was time for a field trip to Churchill Technology Park to see what is happening with the new school.
