The school's name was recently changed in 2009 in honor of Mrs. Myrtle C. Thibodeaux, the first principal of our school, who recently passed away. Our school mascot is the Wildcat. Thibodeaux Elementary has been in existence since 1940, and several generations of Westwego families have attended our school. The school services approximately 440 scholars in grades Pre-K through 5th grade.
