May was a busy month for our staff and scholars. All 3rd – 8th grade scholars took Louisiana’s annual LEAP assessments in math, ELA, social studies, and science. We are proud of our scholars and teachers for giving their all in every round of testing.
We said farewell to nearly 150 eighth grade students from across our three schools. We wish them well and look forward to seeing them excel in high school and college.
Student Ambassadors at Paul Habans had the opportunity to envision what their “college and beyond” future could look like when they hosted their first “Power Hour,” an event that gave them the opportunity to meet with professionals from various industries and learn more about potential career paths.
May was also an exciting month for our 7th and 8th grade scholars at Tubman and Habans, many of whom visited Washington, D.C. for an end-of-year educational field trip.
I also wanted to update you and thank you for your generosity during GiveNOLA Day on May 2. Thanks to you, we exceeded our goal and raised more than $18,000 for our schools.
As we close out another academic year, I reflect on how special this year has been to the Crescent City Schools community. We have continued our mission of raising student achievement, opened up new opportunities for our athletic scholars by starting the Crescent City Charter League, and watched our scholars gain knowledge through new resources made available to them, because of supporters like you.
I thank you for your continued belief in our work and look forward to another exciting year when school resumes in August.
