Congratulations to the Music Department

I would like to send out a" job well done" to the Hartford Music Department on the completion of their Spring Concert performances. All of the students did a wonderful job. Many of the parents leaving each night were amazed at what they had just experienced. Congratulations to Mrs. Dilatush, Ms. Tedesco, and Mr. Sapowsky's stage crew.

Training the Next Generation of School Administrators

Earlier in the year, Ben Kastner and Elizabeth Guia won the opportunity to become assistant principals for the day during our PTO Are You Smarter Than... event. Always needing the extra help, we put them right to work. Their day consisted of creating next year's master schedule, student placement, and accepting or rejecting next year's after school club proposals (just kidding!). Here are some highlights of their day.

Finish Strong!

PARCC is done, the weather is getting nicer, and we are all getting spring fever. There are a few weeks left of school and students are easily distracted. It’s even hard for me to stay focused. I don’t just want to "coast." What can I do?


The last few weeks of school can be challenging, and it is understandable that both students and teachers would be tempted to "slack-off" a bit. However, it is important for the future of our students that we actually "step up" the quality and intensity of what is happening in our classrooms during this time period.


We are coming to the end of a long race. I share in your enthusiasm as we look forward to the end of the school year. However, don't take off the last few weeks of school. Don't turn on cruise control and coast your way through the end of the year. There will be plenty of temptation, but don't take the bait. Keep your expectations both high and realistic, and recognize that finishing strong is just as important as starting strong.
