Hello, I'm Elmo Claverie, Jr., and I am the band director at Cypress Point Elementary School and three other elementary schools in Monroe City School System. I am a proud graduate of Southern Univ, but also  studied at Jackson State University. I have more than 40 years of teaching experience, which includes teaching at five high schools before becoming an elementary band director. The high school bands under mydirection performed at the “Battle of the Bands” throughout Louisiana, Texas, Georgia, Tennessee, and Mississippi where they received more than 100 Championship Awards. Also, my high school students performed at an MLK parade in Atlanta; two Fourth of July parades in Washington, D.C; a Jackson State vs Southern University game; pre-game for a New Orleans Saints game, grand opening for several stores and highways; and Mardi Gras parades which includes Rex King of Carnival and Bacchus (invitation only). Lastly, I have also judged the NAACP National ACT/SO Talent Competition.
