Waterbury Roar

Volume 1, Issue 20; January 22, 2021

A Roar from our Principal, Dr. Jon Pokora

Waterbury Families,

We are looking ahead to Trimester 3 (Feb. 22 thru June 2) and need your help to plan for your child's learning.

Hybrid Learning Choice for Trimester 3 - DEADLINE 1/24

Only Students who want to change their learning model (in-person vs remote-only) for Trimester 3 should complete the "T3 Hybrid Learning Form" in Skyward. If you want to keep your current mode of learning, you do not need to do anything. If we do not hear from you by Sunday, 1/24 5pm, we will assume you do not want to make any changes.

Thank you for your cooperation, and have a wonderful weekend.

Dr. Jon Pokora


A lost and found bin is now located in the office. Please contact Mrs. Carone or Mrs. Cronin if you believe your student has misplaced an item.

Hi to all of my favorite students!

It has been so great to see so many of you back in school. I’m so proud of how you all wear your masks, practice good handwashing, and stay 6 feet apart of one another. These healthy habits are so important in our efforts to keep all of you healthy and safe!

My office needs some colorful decorations. If you have any free time and would like to help me, please print of this coloring sheet, color it however you want to and drop it off at the health office when you are in school. It would make my heart so happy!

Have a wonderful weekend!

See you next week –

Nurse Lisa
