It’s the newsletter before Christmas and all through The Broad, new features are screening, with a couple quite odd. Our hot-pink tree is covered with light, and no matter what, this week will delight. We’ve got indie pleasures from across the globe, and a visual feast from a filmmaker in vogue. The rest of this newsletter will not be in rhyme, but continue reading and you’re sure to have a good time.

Harte Teacher wins “Oscar of Teaching”, Edna Karr makes football history

Two of InspireNOLA’s foundation schools accomplished major achievements this past week. Alice Harte Charter School’s Master Teacher, Theresa Cross, received the national 2017 Milken Educator Award, and Edna Karr High School made history by winning back-to-back State Football Championships.

“We are extremely proud of the commitment and achievements from Ms. Cross, Coach Brown and the Karr football team. While different, these victories are important for changing New Orleans by showing students what can be achieved,” said InspireNOLA CEO Jamar McKneely.

First, a confession: the writer of this weekly newsletter is huge Star Wars fan. Two years ago, prior to the opening of our theater, he spent 20 hours at the multiplex watching all seven films in a row and swore that Episode 8 would play at The Broad where he would watch it then. That promise is fulfilled this Thursday as we open our doors for STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI.

This weekend we picked up our trademarked hot pink Christmas tree and plopped it down in the lobby with merriment and good cheer. The holiday season is in full swing and as the number of shopping days dwindle down, the number of Oscar contenders and blockbusters go up. We’ve got one big movie opening this weekend with another movie you might have heard of coming up next Thursday.

Dear District B Voters,

Let me be clear: My first priority will always be to protect neighborhoods. The proliferation of short-term rentals has decimated some neighborhoods, artificially inflating the long-term rental market and driving out locals from our community. What they have become is a far-cry from what the Council originally intended—allowing homeowners to supplement their income. Continue reading »

The Louisiana Department of Education recently released school letter grades, and the InspireNOLA charter network continues to excel and outperform area schools. Alice Harte Charter School and Edna Karr High School both maintained “A” letter grades, and Andrew Wilson Charter School’s school performance score increased by over 31 points in only two years.

For the fourth year in a row, Harte achieved an “A” letter grade and surpassed the state average of students scoring Mastery or above on LEAP assessments. Harte continues to remain a top open-admissions school in the city and one of only two open-admissions “A” elementary schools in New Orleans. Continue reading »
