National Lemonade Day FCWCS Style

Our third year taking part in the National Lemonade Day event was a resounding success! We appreciate all the Warriors and community members who stopped by our stand, at the intersection of Bullard and Lake Forest, to purchase a glass of lemonade. Mrs. Johnson’s citrus beverage was so delicious we had customers who returned twice to buy more.

The National Lemonade Day event was begun to encourage young people to become our next generation of entrepreneurs. The first Lemonade Day took place in Houston, TX in 2007. Now more than 200 cities and almost a quarter of million kids take part in this now annual event. FCWCS is proud to sponsor a stand. A special thank you to Warrior Destiny Albert for being a fine example of what we want future entrepreneurs to be!

As always, we dedicate a portion of our profits to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Greater New Orleans.

6th Annual Muffins for Moms

Our Moms showed up on May 2nd, about 160 strong. We can always count on mom. Those students, whose mothers couldn’t attend, brought grand moms, a favorite aunt, or an older sister along for the fantastic morning of muffins, milk and a little entertainment. Our own FCWCS teacher, Ms. Shoran Warren provided the inspirational words of wisdom.

This year, 2014, marks the 100th anniversary of Mother’s Day, the most popular day for making phone calls. Our Warriors realize how blessed they are to have their mothers so nearby.

Annual Black History Program 2014

We celebrate the contributions of Black Americans to the United States daily at FCWCS. But each February we it to the next level, with a month filled with activities for students. Be it the Black History Quiz Bowl, the Faculty Extravaganza, the HBCU Step Show, displaying our musical talents, modern dance, or even a little theatre group–we proudly showcase our talents that were inspired by our ancestors. Each Friday in February, there is something for everybody. It is definitely a time for all to learn about their past as they prepare for their future.

Saints Akiem Hicks Visits Warriors

New Orleans Saints DE Akiem Hicks visited Warriors on October 29th. He stressed the importance of getting an education and good behavior to students in grades 1-8.

Our Marching Warriors met the Saints defensive player Hicks at the school’s entrance. We were treated to “words of wisdom” regarding school, athletics, and life.
