Zachary Schools are In Session Record Setting 5500 Students Enroll for 2013-14 School Year Zachary Community School District Superintendent Scott Devillier opened the 2013-14 School year this past week with a record enrollment of over 5500 students in the district. The district has grown in number of students every year since its inception as an independent school district a decade ago. Fellowship Church of Zachary again hosted the annual opening session of Zachary Schools. Over 600 Zachary educators and support staff filled the Sanctuary of the Church to listen to the The theme for this school year as presented by Superintendent Devillier, the theme is “Every Child, Every Day.” The Zachary High School Choir, under the direction of Jason Bowers, performed the National Anthem for the crowd. Following a welcome by Zach-

ary Community School Board President Gaynell Young, the 2013 Zachary Community Teachers of the Year were welcomed to the stage and saluted by the staff of the District. Superintendent Devillier then introduced the guest speaker for the day, James Vollbracht. Vollbracht is the author of five books, including Stopping at Every Lemonade Stand: How to Create a Culture That Cares for Kids, Vollbracht’s dynamic and inspiring keynote address focused on the key shifts that need to occur in our culture and how to apply them in our schools, organizations, and communities. The goal of the district is to continue pursuing excellence in education.

Superintendent Scott Devillier and guest speaker James Vollbracht share a laugh and a handshake at the district’s annual opening session. Devillier welcomed back the district’s over 600 employees for the start of the 2013-14 school year. Both Vollbracht and Devillier spoke at Zachary Community Schools opening session held at Fellowship Church of Zachary. The district theme for this school year is Every Child. Every Day.

The Next Step Performing Arts Center Introduces Dance Royalty The Next Step Performing Arts Center is proud to present their Dance Scholarship and Ad Award Winners. Dance Scholarship winners include Senior Scholarship Winner: Morgan Mazzarella, Junior Scholarship Winner: Chloe` Boxley, and Petite Scholarship Winner: Ella Brown. Dance Scholarships are awarded to three students each year to represent the studio at community and dance events. These young ladies have been chosen based on their leadership skills, community involvement, dedication to dance excellence, class attendance, as well as special event participation. All three of this year’s scholarship winners are currently members of The Next Step’s competition dance team and travel throughout the state competing in team as well as solo dance events in a variety of dance genres in addition to their regular dance class load. The Senior Scholarship winner, Morgan Mazzarella, will have the honor of performing her solo at the Annual Spring Showcase held at the Baton Rouge River Center Theater for the Performing Arts on May 31, 2014.

Ad Winner Scholarships are awarded to students participating in the Showcase Program Ad Contest held every spring. These students will also represent the studio throughout the year at a variety of special events. This year, there was a tie for the 1st Place Ad winner between Chloe Broussard and Cache` Brown. The Next Step Performing Arts center is owned by Christine WatsonGranier. Dance has been Christine’s passion since she started at age 1 ½. “I have been dancing for over 40 years,” she says. She is a Dance Masters of America certified dance instructor and has been teaching dance for over 20 years. Formerly a teacher at Peggy’s Dance Studio, she opened her own studio located at 5810 Main Street (across from Walmart, next to Cactus Café) in August of last year. “I’ve always known I wanted to open my own studio. I thought, I will be fine if I can get at least 50 students,” says Christine. After being open for only one year, The Next Step Performing Arts Center now has 175 students. In Novem-

ber of last year, Christine expanded her space adding a second studio to accommodate all the dancers. Christine credits her staff for a successful first year, Marianne Wascom, Robbie Quick, Lauren Cross, Susan Jullens, and Markie Hastings. Christine enjoys teaching dance to all ages, her classes range from Mommy & Me for ages 15 months-2 ½ years to Advanced Level Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical and Pointe for teens. She keeps her classes at around 15 students so she can “have her hands on each student.“ In addition to the classes offered at her studio, she also teaches dance and physical education at area churches and day care centers. She is also in-

volved at Zachary High School with the Colorguard and Featured Twirler and the Northwestern Middle School Baton Twirlers. “I love being busy teaching dance, because I get to do what I love,” says Christine about her hectic schedule. “I teach dance and P.E. to toddlers in the morning, then go to the schools for band practice in the afternoons, and at night, I am at my studio teaching classes.” For more information on classes offered by The Next Step Performing Arts Center, please visit the website: http://www.TNSdance.webs.com , call (225) 362-1886, or visit Facebook or Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheNext_ Step.
