Pierre A. Capdau Charter School

at Avery Alexander

Dear Families,

The new school campus is nearing completion and I can’t wait to welcome you all there in August!

Your child will enjoy a state-of-the-art school with technology and specialized facilities to support many wonderful learning opportunities. I have great news to share with you today! We will be providing each student with a free uniform for next school year. This will include one pair of pants, a shirt, and a sweatshirt. We are grateful to our partners at New Schools for New Orleans for providing this generous gift to our students.

As we near the beginning of next school year, I will be seeking your input and help in planning activities to welcome our students and teachers into our beautiful new space. We’ll also work together to plan a family back to school event. I hope you can join me at an informational meeting at Lake Area High School on March 23rd at 5:30 pm. This will be an opportunity to learn about the many activities for your child to participate in at the new school including football, cheerleading, band, basketball, track, baseball, softball, dance, art, choir, Spanish, majorettes, and PTO. If you cannot attend the evening meeting on the 23rd, please join me at 9am on March 22nd for a more informal informational meeting at Lake Area High School.

Thank you for supporting your child’s education through communication and participation.

With Gratitude,
Michelle Blouin-Williams
