Unified Sports Mike Savage Teammate Award
Post from Special Olympics Unified Sports / CIAC School-Based Programs Facebook Page
Our Connecticut Unified Sports program annually recognizes one outstanding high school program for the Michaels' Cup Award. This year's honoree is Rockville High School, Vernon CT. This longstanding program, led by coach Joe Prignano, is active in so many ways. They participate in Soccer, Basketball, Bowling, Volleyball, and Tennis and host other schools for games and tournaments.
They also participate together in fundraising, family pasta dinner nights, the Yardgoat baseball program, and partner with the VOAG and 4H program. They host the teams in their league for an annual Snowflake Dance in December and host schools from across the state at their Bowling tournaments. Congratulations to everyone associated with this outstanding program! #playunified #playunifiedct Special Olympics Connecticut Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference

Optional Summer Reading from the RHS English Department
Greetings RHS Parents/Guardians,
We ask you to help us encourage the habit of reading by supporting the Rockville High School
English Department's summer reading enrichment opportunity. When students return to the high school in the fall, they will share their optional summer reading experiences and will receive extra credit. Our hope is that discussion of these texts will continue to promote lifelong reading habits and allow students to learn from each other. We invite you to read from the Nutmeg 2021 selections or any other book of interest along with your young adult as a way to make the reading even more meaningful. To earn extra credit, students should complete the Google form review for their 2020-2021 grade level. If you have any questions or concerns about the titles on the Nutmeg List, or your young adult wishes to choose a title not on the list, please email all inquiries to the RHS English Department Head at Victoria.Nordlund@vernonct.org . Thank you for your help in supporting our efforts to foster lifelong learners who value independent reading.
