Costumes-Warriors

Costumes + Warriors = Ghouls, Goblins, Ghosts, and Fun

The last day of October is Halloween and the ghouls, goblins, ghosts take over our classrooms in grades Pre-K through 5.

There’s always a costume contest on hand. This year’s judges–L. McCray, T. Daigle, and J. Watts gave out certificates for the Best Costume, the Funniest Costume, the Scariest Costume, and the Most Original. The competition was keen, but the judges were able to reward the victors on each grade level.  No easy feat, by any means.

Faculty vs Students Athletic Events

Happening three times a year are the Faculty vs. Students Athletic Events in Flag Football, Basketball, and Volleyball.

Always drawing a crowd to the gym or the school’s yard, Friday afternoons on this days are always “Thrillers on Bullard.”

The students always put up a good fight, there’s something about youth and energy that keep the staff struggling. But, wisdom usually wins out in the long run . . .

Afterschool Program Time Well-Spent

The Afterschool Program keeps students engaged Monday through Thursday.

From 3:30 to 5:30, our students are kept busy. The program provides a safe place for pupils until they can be reunited with their parents. The $10.00 registration fee covers the entire year of snacks, a little help with homework, and great after school activities–music, Girls Scouts, art, dance, and sports.

The “traditional” school day certainly does not end at FCWCS with the 3:15 p.m. bell.

Yearly Fall Fest Features Fun for All

November brought the annual Fall Festival to our campus. Students looked forward to an afternoon of fun, friends, food, and frolic on the campus grounds.

Students following the 4Ps (they are prompt, polite, productive, and prepared) were invited to take part in the event.

Voices of FCWCS Choir Performs

Voices of FCWCS Choir Perform @ Celebration in the Oaks

Our “Voices” performed at City Park’s Celebration in the Oaks, the yearly Christmas Extravaganza in New Orleans’ 1300-acre park.

The annual celebration is one of Christmas lights, displays, and musical presentations by schools in the metro area.  The Voices of Fannie C. Williams performed for the third straight year under the direction of Mrs. K. T. Wright, choir director at our school.

The December performance was one of three for the Warriors. They also performed at Lafon’s Nursing Home and at a church in Slidell. Good job Warriors.

That Championship Season!

Flag Football Team Wins 2nd Metro Middle School Championship

Coach Terry Green and his squad did it again. The Warriors defeated the Hynes Huskies November 3rd in a thriller in Metairie, 31-30.

The team finished with an overall record of 6-2. Members of this talented squad were athlete scholars in grades 6-8.

The 2014 victory marked the second year in a row that FCWCS has won the MMSL championship. Last year we played Hynes Elementary for the title and won. The Coach Green and his players have accumulated a 14-3 record for the last two seasons.
Congratulations to our scholar athletes and their coach.

Grandparents’ Day At FCWCS

One of our oldest traditions at FCW is hosting our grandparents on campus. Each fall we honor them with a special day on campus.

Grandparents are special people to our Warriors. We display our talents to their beaming faces. What a joy to have them on campus.

Fall Scholastic Book Fair

Fall Scholastic Book Fair, Annual Event Great Success!

Hundreds of books and assorted items, all geared to students in Pre-K through 8th grade filled our Warrior Library during our Fall Scholastic Book Fair.

Librarian Karen LeBlanc always takes the yearly event to another level, with decorations that reinforce the theme. This year’s fall theme was “Sir Readalot’s Castle.” Mrs. LeBlanc transformed the Warrior Library into a “Kingdom of Books!”

Sales were definitely brisk, with grandparents on campus for Grandparent’s Day shopping for their grandkids.

Our Spring Scholastic Book Fair will be held March 23rd-27th. Be ready to shop for books on campus. Parents are welcome to attend.

Saturday Warrior Academy Returns

FCW’s administration has resurrected the Saturday Warrior Academy (SWA) after a hiatus of one year. Notices were sent home via students, requesting parents enroll their child in the academic classes.

Parents are responsible for dropping off and picking up their scholars each Saturday morning. Uniforms are not required. Regular attendance is a must for students to receive all the benefits available.

Classes begin each Saturday promptly at 9:00 a.m. and end at 11:00 a.m. Students are instructed by members of the FCWCS staff. Saturdays of operation are as follows:

Saints-Gatorade Jr Training Camp Returns

The New Orleans Saints, in conjunction with Gatorade, the sports drink, sponsored its second junior training camp on our campus, Wednesday, January 28th. Students in grades 3-8, who followed the 4Ps during the second quarter, (they were prompt, polite, prepared, and productive) were allowed to participate. The Responsibility Tracker was used to keep track of students with an average of 90 points or better for the quarter.

The Saints visit is in conjunction with the NFL’s Play 60 campaign geared to encourage kids to be active for 60 minutes each day. Our front yard became “training camp” for the 200 kids taking part in the activity. It is the goal of Play 60 to reverse the trend of

childhood obesity currently plaguing the USA.

Our scholar athletes were also encouraged to stay away from tobacco products and to do their best in school. Thanks to Mrs. K. LeBlanc for securing this activity again for our Warriors.
