I heard they are tearing down Jefferson Terrace Elementary
Anyone else heard this? Nothing in the Advocate that I saw.

They are having town hall meetings to discuss the future for Jefferson Terrace Elementary and the future school they want to build on their property that is the empty lot over by Blue Cross that is surrounded by the existing neighborhood.

Pretty sure that future is a new school where Jefferson Terrace is.

Went to first through third grade there. Was in first grade when The Challenger blew up. Crazy.

It’s still a great neighborhood. It has held up really well and the new filings and the gentrification of older homes has kept the core of the neighborhood very nice .

That lot adjoining Azrok is actually a nice feature of the neighborhood as is the park and the swimming pool .

@JoseVargas

I was in first grade there too when Challenger blew up. Had Lacaz (spelling?) as the teacher. Were you in the same class?

Had Tompanis in second and Jones in third.

Do you remember "Tall Tales of America"?

JT was a great neighborhood to grow up in. I was there from birth (1979) till I got hitched in 1999. Spent a lot of time at the park, the swimming pool in the summers, rode bikes. Had a big backyard. Went to the school from K-3. I remember Ramers; they had good chili dogs. I also remember that old-school barbershop next door to Ramers. My folks moved out of the neighborhood a couple of years ago.

My grandparents lived on cherrywood and I spent my summers in JT in the 90’s. Love that neighborhood.

I grew up on Hackberry and rode my bike there from Kindergarten through 2nd grade.

Baton Rouge would have good schools if we could only have neighborhood schools instead of busing kids all over the place to meet quotas.

Deuce Midnight went to Jefferson Terrace (K and 1, I believe) when I was in law school.

Good times ...

Thanks for the correction.

One of my best friends lived on Hackberry.
