We are pleased to honor selected Region One students at the 30th annual Litchfield County Superintendents' Association dinner at the Cornucopia Banquet Hall on November 19, 2014. Nineteen school districts represented by approximately 255 students, parents and administrators attend the event. Students are honored for their overall academic and civic contributions to their schools. Selected students are: Matthew Lopes at Lee H. Kellogg School; Dean Saccardi at Cornwall Consolidated School; Robert Johnson at Kent Center School; Victor Flores at North Canaan Elementary School; Grace Hazelton at Salisbury Central School; Jameason Russin at Sharon Center School; and Eric Chin and Gilliam McGuire at Housatonic Valley Regional High School. Congratulations to all of our students!
SM&SH is an exploration day in Science and Mathematics in which our Region One sixth grade students are invited to participate. This year's event was held on October 21st, hosted by the Hotchkiss Math Club, along with Hotchkiss faculty members, Marta Eso, William Fenton and Nina Otterson, plus Gayle Shanley from Indian Mountain School. Our students were immersed in a day-long array of hands-on experiences which included experiments, puzzles and problem solving. Thank you to Hotchkiss for providing such a great experience for our students.
Next month will begin the process of developing a school calendar proposal for the 2015 and 2016 school years. Education Connection is working on a regional draft this month.
I and several members of the regional boards of education will be attending the 2014 CABE & CAPSS Convention at the Mystic Marriott in Groton, CT on November 14th and 15th.
