Every class expressed their gratitude for our beloved school nurse in honor of Nurse Appreciation Week. Today, the Primary Blended class serenaded Mrs. Ferrer with "You are my Sunshine" and presented her with this handmade sign for her office door.

Summer Garden Maintenance

Warren students are readying the beds to sow seeds and transplant plants into Harvest of Dreams for its 17th growing season!

Through sustainable, organic practices the garden brings life-long, authentic learning into the lives of our students who work hard to collaboratively bring the garden to life. Warren School is very proud of its Harvest of Dreams garden. Since 2002, students, families, and staff have worked together to create a garden for students to explore curriculum objectives and environmental stewardship. Throughout the summer, the delicious, nutritious produce is enjoyed by those in need at area soup kitchens and food banks and by families maintaining the garden. Upon arrival back to school in the fall, students enjoy the freshly picked produce and the Warren community is invited to join us at our Harvest Luncheon to enjoy the dishes each class freshly prepared.

The outreach, celebrations, and success of the garden would not be possible without the help of families and community.

Summer Garden Maintenance,

As in the past, we are seeking families to sign-up for one week. (Consider sharing the week with another family!) If your family is able to help, please sign up here.

Manure, Mulch, & Soil

Our garden beds need to be topped with garden soil, amended with composted manure, and protected with muclch. If you can help with a donation and/or delivery of any of these items, please contact Alisa Wright (awright@rsd6.org)

Looking forward to another amazing growing season!

Reminder about school attire

School Attire ("Dress Code")

The purpose of stressing appropriate clothing for students is to create an atmosphere at school that is conducive to learning. Students are expected to dress in a manner that will not interfere with instruction or endanger the well-being (physical, mental and emotional) of others and themselves.

Students who wear clothing that is deemed to be inappropriate for school or school-related activities may be subject to administrative action. Students who fail to comply with expectations concerning attire will be subject to school discipline in accordance with the Board's policy on student discipline. Administrative action may include, but is not limited to, the following:

• request of student to change clothing

• request of parent to bring to school a change of clothing for student

• removal of student from class

School administrators, at their discretion, may make changes to the list above.

Please Note:

  • When choosing shoes, consider the weather, as well as the activities of a typical school day.

  • Suggested shorts’ styles include cargo shorts, trouser shorts, soccer shorts, basketball shorts, Oxford shorts, Chino shorts, and Bermuda shorts. Short-shorts are not acceptable school attire.

  • All pants and shorts should fit snugly at the waist, with no exposed skin between pants/shorts and shirt.

  • Shirts with sleeves are recommended.

  • Undergarments, including bra straps and boxer shorts, should not be visible.

  • Hats are not permitted in school.

Social Media Safety

Does your child use social media? Are you aware of all of the risks associated with social media and the internet, and what you can do as a parent to keep your child safe? You are invited to a presentation by the Connecticut State Police on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. in the Wamogo Auditorium. Parents will learn about the risks associated with social media and the internet while also receiving important training on what to look for and how to best monitor your student to keep them safe.
