The fourth annual Fall Frenzy, a recruiting event for all the parish’s Schools of Choice,
takes place tomorrow from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the Cajundome Convention Center. Each School of Choice will have a booth in the Main Exhibit Hall of the Convention Center with information, student demonstrations and hands-on activities for visitors of all ages. Other student performances will take place on the center’s main stage.
Fall Frenzy is billed as a one-stop-shop for parents and children to explore all their options for the 2009-10 school year. This is the first date to apply for admission to a School of Choice for next year. Admission is free, and open to the general public. For more information, call 521-7160.
