Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

On Thursday, May 26th, all elementary school students, their families, and community members are invited to join us at our first end-of-year elementary Celebration of Learning! This event, which will be held between 5:00-6:15PM in Wamogo's main gymnasium, will feature each elementary school student's personally selected work that showcases his or her best effort, such as written pieces, mathematical representations, artwork, MakerSpace creations, science models and more.

Visitors are welcome to arrive at any point during the 75-minute window, and to visit the variety of stations that will be arranged in the gymnasium, at least one of which will feature your child's work. Teachers will be at their respective stations to greet and assist you as you explore. We look forward to seeing all of you at this new event, the latest in our series of connections between the students and staff of all three of our RSD6 elementary schools!

Welcome to our new school nurse!

Please join me in welcoming Michele Ferrer to the Warren School staff. Michele will become our new school nurse, effective May 31, 2016.

Michele has been a nurse at Hartford Hospital for the past 24 years, with a background in medicine, surgery, and cardiology. She has also subbed as a nurse for Region 6 and Litchfield Schools for the past 5 years. Michele has a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from St. Joseph College, and a Master of Science in Nursing Education from the University of Hartford. She lives in Morris with her husband Keith and her two children, Colin and Justin.

CAG Educator of the Year

I was extremely honored to be awarded the Connecticut Association of the Gifted Educator of the Year Award on May 10th. CAG's Educator of the Year award "honors a program, teacher, or school administrator who has gone above and beyond to provide gifted students with an exceptional academic experience." I received this award in recognition of the work that the Region 6 Gifted Steering Committee and I have done to develop a Talented and Gifted (TAG) program that will meet the special needs of gifted students in our district beginning next year. The newly developed TAG program will complement the many enrichment opportunities that are already available for all students in our district.

SoundWaters Field Trip

We had an amazing time at the SoundWaters field trip in Stamford on Tuesday. I heard at least three different people say, "This is the best field trip that I have ever been on!"

Students conducted population studies of tidal animals, learned all about horseshoe crabs, petted fish, seined the shallow brackish water, and more!

The sun made a welcome companion on the trip, so students were able to enjoy a picnic lunch and fun on the Cove Island playground as well.

Thank you, Friends of Warren School, for subsidizing this trip so that everyone could attend! Thank you also to the many parent volunteers who enjoyed the day with us.

Best wishes,

Angela Rossbach, Ed.D.
