More Ribbon Cutting

We’re Home!

On Thursday, November 15th we had our formal ribbon cutting ceremony, allowing community and the press the opportunity to peek inside our new home.

We had a full house–Rev. Fred Luter, Jr. (Franklin Avenue Baptist Church) Superintendent Patrick Dobard (RSD), Ira Thomas (OPSB), State Representative Austin Badon, Jr. and former BESE board member Louella Givens to name a few.

Delta Sigma Theta Funds Jacqueline Dennison Reading Corner

The alumni chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority made an impressive presentation of $956.39 to Principal/C.E.O. Kelly Batiste and librarian Karen LeBlanc on behalf of the students of FCWCS.

Soror Tracey Braden made the presentation November 30, 2012 in honor of her “sister” Jacqueline Dennison to establish the Jacqueline Thomas Dennison Reading Corner in our school’s library. The donation should add an additional 100 books to our school’s collection of about 7500.

Mrs. Dennison was a member of the N.O. Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and had served as Chapter President. She also worked in New Orleans Public Schools for 36 years as a teacher and administrator before retiring in 2005. Mrs. Dennison passed away July 18, 2011.
