What a beautiful exhibit we had this year! The variety, the color, the creativity were all breathtaking and inspiring! We are so impressed and proud of our students and their creative skills!

Congratulations Baker Vreeland!

Congratulations goes out to 4th grader Baker Vreeland for being one of four Fairfield County students selected to represent the county at the CT Fire Prevention Poster Contest. An estimated 20,000 students enter the contest each year, with a large majority coming from Fairfield County, making her accomplishment even more impressive. Baker's poster reminding us about Fire Prevention Everyone Everyday will be a part of their upcoming calendar.

Mytilana Nokta, also in grade 4, and Leyna Aguilar, grade 5, both came in 2nd place in the Town.

Congratulations to all our CT Fire Prevention Poster Contest winners!
