4th Grade Musicians Accompany Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra

November 2011

Wednesday, November 9th, ten FCWC students performed in concert with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra during the Young People’s Concert at West Jefferson High School Auditorium. David Torns was the conductor.

They performed the “New World Symphony” by Anonin Dvorak on recorders—plastic, flute-like, woodwind instruments used by many band directors for beginner band classes. Fingering is similar to other woodwind instruments. These instruments are presently being employed in the best elementary level General Music Class curriculums, including here at FCWCS.

These talented musicians are members of Mrs. T. Daigle’s 4th Grade Class. Chasiti, Derricka, Herchele, Quincy, Joshua, Raheem, Ivan, Zhakiay, Jared, and Rondell are learning to play the recorder under the direction of Vocal Music teacher Ms. K. Wright.

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.
