Lisa Provenzano

                     Welcome to First Grade! 

Hello! My name is Lisa Provenzano. I am your child's First Grade teacher. I am a graduate of Chanel Interparochial School, Lutcher High School, Louisiana State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, and Nicholls State University. I have been an employee of the St. James Parish Public School System for 21.5 years. This year is my 12th year at Paulina Elementary School. I feel blessed to walk through the front doors of Paulina Elementary School every morning.


  • Written communication: Place note in your child's homework folder.
  • Email: (I'm usually up late at night to answer emails.)
  • Phone calls: I am available to receive phone calls during my planning period - see Class Schedule. Call the office at 225-258-4700 and ask to be transferred to my classroom. There is no direct line to the classroom.
  • In person: Send a note in your child's homework folder or call the office at 225-258-4700 to schedule an appointment to see me during my planning period.
Every Monday a new homework sheet will be placed in your child's Homework/Communication folder. In addition to the assigned homework for the week, you will find:
  • upcoming deadlines for payments for field trips, school activities, etc.
  • the conduct calendar
  • other special announcements

This folder must be checked every night!
