On Friday, Jan. 27, Carla Duplechin’s students from Gonzales Middle School went on a field trip to New Orleans. While there, they visited Café de Monde where they enjoyed beignets, rode on the city’s iconic streetcar and ate lunch at the New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood Co.

The field trip was a culminating activity for an Ascension Fund Grant.
