FOURTH GRADE PARENTS NEEDED: Every year parents of 4th graders assist at the 5th Grade Graduation so that parents of graduating kids can celebrate with their families.

Please contact Catherine Garvin if you are able to help! Thanks.

FIRE SAFETY ALARM:  Dear Parents/Guardians:  I wanted to communicate with you that the fire alarm was activated today at approximately 12:45PM in the cafeteria. A maintenance worker triggered the arm when cleaning an area that contained a large amount of dust. The firm alarm went off and the students and staff responded in an appropriate manner. The Stamford Fire Department arrived at the school quickly and investigated the situation. The students and staff entered the building shortly after the inspection and the regular school day continued. I am very proud of the students for SOARing to Success as always. Thanks, Michael Pisseri, Principal.
