BCMS Sixth Graders talk to Local Government Officials

On October 13, sixth grade students and teachers at Belle Chasse Middle School were allowed to speak with and ask questions of our local elected officials. As part of the Project LEAD curriculum, students learn what happens when someone decides to break the law and is caught.

District Attorney, Charles Ballay welcomed the students and explained what his office does after a crime is committed. He spoke about

his office and what it entails and also what happens when an arrest is made. He went on to say that “everyone on the panel today work as a team and it takes hard work, teamwork and dedication to bring a criminal to justice.”
