Mission:  Through school based and community program/partnerships, it is our goal that by the time students leave Sixth Ward Elementary they would have exemplified growth in all aspects of their lives.

Vision:  The vision for Sixth Ward Elementary is to adopt programs and encourage professional practices that promote the development of the whole child. Whereby, the academic, behavioral, social, and emotional needs of our students are met, in an effort to produce a more well-rounded student and foster life-long success.

Sixth Ward Elementary

Teacher of the Year!



LaCria Martin’s route to teaching began as a student in Mrs. Brenda Mitchell’s class. She aspired to be an Amazing teacher filling more roles than her job title requires: such as role model, advisor, and protector.

As a teacher she strives to facilitate engaging learning, meeting each scholar where they are educationally and building them up to where they need to be. Teaching is a privilege, and opportunity and LaCria is blessed to be able to educate in the parish in which she has been raised and educated.

LaCria Martin, M.Ed. earned a  Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education as well as a Master’s of Elementary Ed. from Southern University of Baton Rouge. She is currently a First Grade teacher and no matter what grade level that she will teach or tutor , her goal is to work hard, teach amazingly, and motivate her scholars because of her actions to one day be an educator.

Throw Me Some Information Teachers

was the theme of the Sixth Ward Elementary open house held on Wednesday, January 25th.
The purpose of the open house was to provide all parents the opportunity to reconnect with teachers and be empowered with the needed knowledge that will ensure success for students for the remainder of the school year.
3rd - 6th grade teachers presented types of questions and tasks that students will encounter on the LEAP test later this year. PK - 1st grade parents completed an Informational Make and Take session.  2nd grade parents completed a close-read of a story similar to those the students do in class.  Refreshments and door prizes completed the evening.
