Happenings and Items of Note

Enjoy your day!

Dear Community,

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!

Dr. Angela Rossbach


Northwest Community Read Aloud

Superintendent Drapp congratulates MacKenzie, this year's recipient of the CAPSS Superintendent's Student Award.

Congratulations to Mackenzie, who is the recipient of this year's CAPSS Superintendent's Student Award. With a humble nature, MacKenzie always seeks ways to improve the school and community. She is a successful student who consistently does her best. MacKenzie is a member of the district’s select choir, the annual school play and Student Council. She has danced, been a Girl Scout, fundraised at church and worked alongside her grandfather to help raise funds for a new Veteran’s Memorial in town. MacKenzie is a true role-model at Warren School.

Connecticut Association of Schools (CAS) Art Awardees

Congratulations to Diana and Madelyn, the Warren School recipients of the Connecticut Association of School's Celebration of the Arts Awards. This award is given to two sixth grade students from each Connecticut school who show outstanding ability in the performing or visual arts. Citizenship and cooperation skills are also taken into consideration.

Diana participates in both the elementary concert band and the inter-elementary select choir. This year, Diana also auditioned for the annual Middle School Northern Regional Music Festival. She not only demonstrates strong music skills, but flourishes in the visual arts as well.

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.

We have a Northern Regional Band member!

Abby auditioned for the Northern Region Band in January after months of preparation. She recently received word that she made it into the band, and is now preparing for that wonderful experience! In March, Abby will spend a weekend with students from all over the Northern region of Connecticut rehearsing for and performing a concert of very advanced music, along with two other elementary students from Region 6. We wish her all the best for this exciting opportunity!

Created by the Warren School Fifth and Sixth Grade 2016

The mission of Seeds of Dreams Seed CO is to provide organic, raw, nutritional Harvest of Dreams sunflower seeds and reach out to help others in need. Through the purchase of the seed packets, our plan is to continue our support to local soup kitchens and food banks and to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) through donations raised.

This project was started and coordinated by 6th graders. All K-6 students are helping to weigh seeds and make packets. ​

​We hope you'll support this project by purchasing seeds using this order form.
