Students vs Faculty Flag Football

Students vs. Faculty Flag Football Game, Fall 2013

In the third game of the series, students once again challenged the faculty to athletic competition.

The competition was fierce, but the faculty could not defeat the young legs of the co-ed student body team.

The Students have challenged the Faculty to games in basketball, volleyball, and flag football. The series (as of December 2013) stands at 3-1. Faculty reigned in basketball (twice) and volleyball, with students the victor in the aforementioned flag football game.

Rotary Club of New Orleans Distributes Reference Books

Warriors in our three fourth grade classes were the recent recipients of reference books, courtesy of the local Rotary Club of New Orleans (District 6840). This marks the third year that the organization has been so generous to our scholars.

Each student was given an atlas and a dictionary for their personal use. Students have been learning the proper use of the dictionary and the atlas in their core classes, so these books will become excellent additions to their home libraries.

Thank you Rotary Club for your generosity.

Our semi-annual School Book Fair was a huge success. Kudos to Mrs. K. LeBlanc for turning our school’s library into a feast for book lovers. This edition’s theme was Reading Oasis. The decorations were fantastic! We are anxiously awaiting the spring edition of one of Warriors favorite academic activities during the school year, Book Fair Week. See you in April!

Grandparents Day 2013

Each fall we honor our grandparents with a special day to visit on our campus. We invite them to school to showcase our talents–singing, dancing, poetry reading–all the things that bring an easy smile to their faces. The Warrior gymnasium was filled to capacity with grandmothers, grandfathers, and even a few great-grandparents on September 6th. Bank Manager Timothy Moody was also on hand to tell the merits of savings accounts for kids started by caring grandparents. It’s always great to have these special people in our lives around!

Celebrating Our Legacy through the Arts

March 1, 2013
Our Annual Black History Celebration

Celebrating Our Legacy through the Arts

The entire month of February was spent expounding on the contributions of African Americans to life in the United States, especially those who contributed so much to the richness of American life in the arts–theater, literature, visual arts, dance, movies, and music.

Students were instructed in how the idea of Black History Month originally evolved (Carter G. Woodson’s idea) and the origins of the Black National Anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing” (originally a poem by James Weldon Johnson).

Special Guest at this year’s program was New Orleans drummer Sullivan Dabney, Jr. and the Muzik Jazz Band.

Our celebration also had classroom doors decorated honoring Black History Month. The winners of the door contest were: 1st Place Ms. S. Tolliver, Rm. 1202, 2nd Place Ms. A. Jones, Rm. 1101, and 3rd Place Ms. A. Singleton, Rm. 1203.

Our resident artists–Mr. P. Britt, Mrs. K. LeBlanc, and Mrs. S. Jones–supplied the beautiful backdrop for our stage production based upon the 1st place t-shirt design of students Jamonnie Cornelius, Donnell Robertson, Jamil Bovia, and Byron Hall.
