2021-2022 Charter Renewal

Fannie C. Williams Charter School
11755 Dwyer Road
New Orleans, LA 70128
Office of the Principal/CEO

October 2019
Dear Parents/Guardians

As part of our Board of Directors (C.L.A.S.S.) and the school’s administration efforts to keep you informed, my message this month is in regards to the charter renewal process for the 2021-2022 school-year.

Our school, Fannie C. Williams Charter, will be in the renewal cycle in two years (2021-2022). NOLA Public Schools will also reach out to you soon to notify you of this important item on our upcoming calendar.

When we first started as a charter, we were governed by the Recovery School District. As of July 1, 2018, all charter schools are under NOLA Public Schools (OPSB). As part of our New Orleans Public School System, all charter schools participate in a routine evaluation process during the last year of their charter operating agreement, which is usually referred to as “renewal.” The operating agreement is between the school’s charter governing board (C.L.A.S.S.) and the Orleans Parish School Board.

The OPSB will use the Charter School Accountability Framework as the foundation to make its decision regarding our renewal. There will also be a review as to how well we have compiled with federal, state, local laws and policy. Our school performance score (SPS–56.2, D; 2017-2018) will also be paramount in this renewal effort.

Parents can get additional information about OPSB’s renewal standards at the link listed below:
This link belongs to the Charter School Accountability Framework (see pages 5-8).

As always, we appreciate your entrusting your child(ren) with us. We will continue to collaborate with parents and the community to make FCWCS a positive place to learn and grow for all children in our care.

–Kelly S. Batiste,

Report Card


Lady Warriors End Volleyball Season, 5-5

First year coaches, Tanisha Batiste and Charline Varnado, directed the Lady Warriors team to a .500 season.

The team was unsuccessful in the MMSL playoff tourney on Saturday, October 27th, concluding the season with a 5-5 record. We anticipate that next season the team will build upon this year’s experiences, becoming more of a force in the MMSL.

The student-athletes were: Nya Batiste, Carltayjah Bazile, Jahda Brown, Amiyah Duret, Alvionce Jones, Shaina Lacayo, Jada Morris, Chrishel Oliver, Keymani Reese, Royelle Robins, Carissa Washington, and Angela Williams. Great effort ladies!

Dedication Is A Must in Cross Country

Some of our most disciplined student-athletes are six students that compose our Cross-Country team, coached by runner enthusiast and Physical Education teacher Dana Williams. This group competes on a Saturday morning, with racing beginning at 7:30 am.

CC is a sport in which teams and individuals run their races on outside courses over natural terrain such as dirt, grass, or in the case of the Warriors in the Metro Middle School League (MMSL), the levee batture in Jefferson Parish.

Runners competed in five meets, including the MMSL Championship Meet where runners Graciela Nunez, Malik Farria, and Christian Rivera finished among the top 30 runners in the 1.5-mile run, finishing the race in less than 12 minutes.

This year’s running Warriors are: Reyli Bejarano, Malik Farria, Graciela Nunez, Christian Rivera, Robert Taylor, and Angela Williams. Great season team.

Warriors Win MMSL Championship!

Warriors Win MMSL Championship!

For the third time in six seasons, the FCWCS Warriors have captured the Metro Middle School League (MMSL) Championship in Flag Football! They ended the seasons undefeated, 8-0. Fannie C. also won league championships in 2013 and 2014.

Coach Terry Green steered his team to victory against the Arden Cahill Academy on Thursday, October 18th. The team was composed of the following student-athletes: DeShaun Batiste, Cedric Dyer, Edwin Fefie, Ahmad Gains, Ashai Goffner, Lawrence Goffner, Akiem Horace, Devin Leaper, Donté Martin, Allan Mercadel, Shavez Morris, Maleek Noah, David Norwood, Melvin Rayford, Tyron Slack, Tyree Strowder, Laval Sullivan, Jaylyn Tyler and David Williams.

This season also marked the first time the Warriors were able to play a home game on our campus. Pictures are from the team’s first home game against Bishop McManus on September 24th.

Congratulations guys on a well-played season.

Cyber Safety Day

Cyber Safety Day with Deuce & Garfield

FCWCS was chosen to represent all elementary public schools in Orleans Parish for Cyber Safety Day (October 10), New Orleans. Schools and communities joined forces to ensure young scholars receive the tools to become responsible digital citizens.

Our 3rd and 4th graders viewed Garfield’s Cyber Safety Adventures. Everybody’s favorite cat, Garfield, and former Saints RB Deuce McAllister were on hand to help deliver the important message. This activity was sponsored by Cox Communications, Metairie Bank, and General Electric.
