1st High School Fair Night Big Hit

November 2011

Eighth graders are already making decisions about next year. The counseling and school’s administration decided to make their task a little easier by sponsoring High School Fair Night.

Students and parents were invited to return to school at 5:00 p.m. to talk to recruiters from city schools such as Sci Academy, O.P. Walker, NOCCA, St. Augustine High, St. Mary’s Academy, Edna Karr, Miller-McCoy, Warren Easton, New Orleans Military & Maritime Academy, N.O. Chapter for Science & Math and Lake Area High School.

It was one-stop shopping for parents and students, about a dozen of the city’s best schools under the FCWCS roof. It allowed consumers—parents and students—to do comparison shopping. Applications, brochures, flyers and mementos were distributed to students, with each school trying to lure “Fannie’s Finest” to their campus next year.

We hope to make this a yearly event.
