Regional School District No. 6
Principal's Message for May 4, 2017
On Tuesday, members of the Warren Historical Society treated our students to Part 2 of the Warren Arts Heritage Program. Each class traveled to the Community Center to work with local artist Al Coffill. After students learned about various farm tools and historical paintings, they were surprised with a gift from the Historical Society - their very own sketch pad and pencil case filled with drawing pencils and implements. Under Mr. Coffill's tutelage, students used the pencils to draw animals, trees, still life, and buildings. The finished art will be on display at the Historical Society and the Town Hall in Warren, and then will travel to Kent to be displayed at the Eric Sloane Museum. This wonderful program was funded by the Northwest Connecticut Arts Council.
We are excited to follow up the Arts Heritage Program with a whole school field trip to Sturbridge Village on May 25th. We will continue to learn about early rural America by exploring a working museum containing more than 40 original buildings, including homes, meetinghouses, a district school, country store, bank, working farm, three water-powered mills, and trade shops. This field trip is subsidized by the Friends of Warren School.

Warren School hosted the annual Region 6 Spelling Bee, with finalists from all three elementary schools participating. Congratulations to Champion speller Michael DeLayo, and runner up Mackenzie Robillard from GCS. All of our spellers were phenomenal!
FootwearThe warmer weather is finally coming! We go out to recess daily and want the children to be as safe as possible. We ask for your help encouraging students to wear sneakers or closed toe shoes so they can run, climb and play without tripping or falling.

Wamogo High School is pleased to announce that for the upcoming summer of 2017, we are running our very own summer program: Summerfest.
This is a 6 week long camp-style program that is 4 days a week (Monday - Thursday) from 9am - 2pm, and runs from June 26th - August 3rd. Sessions are split into 2 week increments and you may sign your child up for multiple sessions if you so choose. Summerfest is open to all Region 6 students of all ability levels in grades 2 - 8. The cost is $75 per week per child with transportation available from central locations for participants. July 5-7 is a shortened week and costs $50.
Summerfest features tons of fun, daily activities led by a team of peer leaders, which include: outdoor sports, classic camp games, arts and crafts, music and drama, water carnivals, cooking, gardening, STEM, dance, team building games, and much more.
