Dear Friends,

The 2017-2018 academic year is upon us, and we are excited to resume work with scholars at each of our three schools: Harriet Tubman Charter School, Akili Academy, and Paul Habans Charter School.

As we start our seventh year operating schools, we continue to innovate in response to students’ needs. Most recently, Akili has added a Pre-K class to their program offerings, as well as a garden to support their learning and development. We’d like to extend a special thank you to all of the volunteers and donors who made this garden possible, especially the PIES group from Illinois who recently completed their 7th summer volunteering with our organization.

In August we honored those staff members who are celebrating their fifth year with Crescent City Schools at our annual Back to School Party. This tradition is quickly becoming a favorite of mine as this special group continues to grow each year.

I am looking forward to all of the exciting things we have planned for the year. On behalf of all of us at Crescent City Schools, we thank you for your continued belief in our mission to raise student achievement and prepare students for college.



Kate Mehok, CEO
