Message from Our C.E.O./Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome back members of the “Fanny Family” and hello to those of you joining us for the first time this year. We are pleased that more than 350 families are calling Fannie C. Williams Charter their school home. We are delighted to have you aboard!

We are in our 8th year as an educational community. We’ve watched our school and neighborhood develop and are very excited about being the “learning place” for more than 610 students enrolled this year.

In our fourth year of existence as a charter, we are constantly trying to enhance the academic opportunities for our students. Using our namesake–Fannie C. Williams–as a mentor, we are doing the things that are necessary to make our children ready for life in the 21st century. The challenges that Miss Williams encountered in the early 20th century may not be the same we are facing today, but each generation has its problems to conquer. It is up to that generation of educators, parents, and community leaders to find solutions to problems that may hinder our young people.

Our mission has been to achieve the highest academic success through collaboration of staff, parents, and community, for we believe the road to college and success in life begins at Fannie C. Williams Charter School. We continue that journey this academic year and count on you to travel along with us.

Kelly S. Batiste,
C.E.O./Principal, FCWCS
