Stone Pigman Personnel Volunteer Time and Energy to the New Orleans College Prep Charter School
On Saturday, July 11, Stone Pigman personnel volunteered their time and energy to work at the New Orleans College Prep Charter School. Volunteers helped school officials prepare their building for the new elementary school grades.
Since April, Stone Pigman has been partnering with the school which is located in New Orleans. This school, a public charter school, is publicly funded, independently managed, non-selective, and available tuition-free on a lottery basis to any child in Orleans Parish. The school currently has sixth and seventh graders, but will expand each year with a new grade (next year there will be an eighth grade). The New Orleans College Prep Charter School also has plans to open an elementary school next year with kindergarten through second grade. The goal of the school is to grow every year until it becomes a K-12 school.
