Parents and visitors are invited to the open house from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday. The event, part of American Education Week, gives everyone in the community the opportunity to see the classrooms and meet the faculty and administrators.

The parish will have its annual fall festival Friday in the parish school hall.

Children and parents are invited from 9: 30 a.m. to 2: 30 p.m.; the public is invited from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
