On Tuesday, May 8, 2024, several organizations gathered to celebrate Children's Day at the Capitol. Lawmakers were given salsa made at the Louisiana United Methodist Children and Family Services (LUMCFS) Outdoor Wilderness Learning (OWL) Center with the story of the magic being made for children throughout our state receiving healing treatment at one of the many LUMCFS children's home in Louisiana. There was then a celebration of After School Magic with the Louisiana Center for Afterschool Learning holding a press conference to announce the fact that Louisiana leads the nation at keeping kids in school and improving student success through its many afterschool programs. A band of students from Young Audiences Charter School in Gretna performed for those gathered, playing a song that one of the students composed.
