School Supply Drop Off & Meet and Greet

9 am – 11 am

LEAP 2025 Academic Pep Rally

As the school year draws to a close, students and staff prepare for the state mandated LEAP test. Here is the opportunity for students to show what they know. All students in grades 3-8 will spend a week testing according to the state of Louisiana’s directives.

Since state testing began in the ’90s, students and faculty have found it stressful. To put our scholars at ease, we always use the Friday before testing begins for our Academic Pep Rally.

The entire student body and staff takes part in attempting to put the test takers at ease. A “can do spirit” is promoted. We’ve got teachers dancing and singing, our youngest students encouraging. This year had parents taking part in encouraging achievement (thanks Super Dad and Mom for your words of encouragement).

A celebration of the year’s lessons and a proclamation of “how we do school” is expressed. Each homeroom is judged on their spirit, participation, and creativity. As the judges tally the final scores, the last performance of the 8th girls of the auxiliary units and the awesome band from Warrior Land takes place. The judges confer and make their final decision. The competition was especially intense this year for the coveted “Spirit Stick.” Where would it end up?

Since its inception, it has always remained on the first floor. But not this year! Ms. Simmons’s 8th Grade homeroom presented the most spirited presentation of the afternoon, bringing the stick upstairs to middle school. Awesome!

Now let’s slay that test!

Spring Bling ’18 One Great Day of Food, Fun, & Friends

If there is ever a day not to miss school it is Spring Bling Day.

The early morning hours may be spent in the classroom but come 11 am the PA system comes on with Mrs. Batiste’s announcement that the festival has begun! Three hours of food, fun, and friends.

What a great way to begin the Spring Break!

Donuts with Dad ’18 Seeking Dads to “King Up”

Our annual celebration that brings fathers, grandfathers, uncles, older brothers and other father figures to school was held on Friday, March 23rd.

The Dads poured in, some in work uniforms, apparently taking off an hour or two to “show up” for their little ones. What a fantastic sight to see so many fathers on campus.

As always, the committee crammed a lot into their hour-long presentation. Mr. Lloyd Dennis, of the Silverback Society (a mentoring group for 8th grade boys) was on hand to give the keynote. Former Warrior teacher, Mr. Joseph Saulsbury, provided live jazz music with his trio. No program is complete without the Voices of FCW (under the direction of Stephanie Jordan) and the Warrior Band (under the direction of Dedric Jones). To close out, the father-daughter dance on stage, guaranteed to always bring a tear or two to your eyes.

Great presentation Mr. Britt and committee. This 9th Annual Donuts with Dad was one for the record book.

Paws for Books – Scholastic Spring Book Fair ’18

The last book fair of the year has ended, a rousing success! Thanks to all who came and patronized our bi-annual book fair. Parents, staff, community neighbors all saw the signs on Bullard and came in to browse the showcases and tables for just the right book or two (or three) for their scholar. Special thanks to the dads attending Donuts with Dad activities on the last day. You took us over the top!

As always, Mrs. LeBlanc, the decorations were awesome. Thanks to the staff members who assisted her with creating just the right canine environment to get the customers/students in to shop. Good job, good job.
