Message from Our C.E.O./Principal

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year! We are excited to get to the business of providing your children with the best education possible.

This is our seventh year as a community of educators and learners. We are also at the start of our third year as a charter school. We know that you deliberated long and hard when deciding where you would send your son or daughter to school. We appreciate the confidence you have placed in our abilities to provide your child with all the tools they will need to prepare for their future as productive citizens.

This year we will transition to full implementation of the Common Core Curriculum. This is a new, rigorous course of study being implemented not only in Louisiana, but also in 44 other states, the District of Columbia, and four territories of the USA. Teachers have been preparing how to best implement this curriculum in their classes. The new guidelines are designed to be “robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers” (www.corestandards.org).

As always, it will be important that the adults in your child’s life–their parents and teachers–work as a team to ensure that they develop into first class scholars. We want to ensure they are ready for high school, then college or post-secondary training, and ultimately the world of work and lives as positive citizens. Students, who have parents that invest in their educations with their interests, time, and effort, have a better chance of success. We need parents to partner with us–collaborating with FCWCS’s staff to make our school a positive place to learn and grow.

We ask that you visit this website frequently to see what is happening on our campus. We hope that you will use it as a tool for gathering information about our school. It is one way we communicate with parents. Keeping you informed will aid in our working together as a team, because teamwork makes the Dream work.

What is that Dream? Simply put, the best education possible for every Warrior on campus!

Kelly S. Batiste

Principal/Chief Executive Officer, FCWCS
