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.


Girl Scout Troop Formed at FCWCS

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.
