Happenings and Items of Note
Enjoy your day!
If we are going to have snow, this is definitely the way to go. The blanket of pure white muffles the sounds and makes the surroundings feel so tranquil. Are you looking for something to do today? Here is a link to 25 Things to Do on a Snow Day.
Enjoy the snow!

Madelyn participates in the elementary concert band. She is a motivated clarinetist and brings a sense of poise to the band program. In addition, Madelyn is an innovative thinker in the visual arts.
The award recipients from Goshen Center School, James Morris School, and Warren School joined awardees from other Connecticut schools at the CAS Elementary Arts Banquet on Monday evening. They were joined by their family members, Mrs. Birdsall, Mrs. Bills, Ms. Cook, and Mrs. Sweet.
