    From the Superintendent of Schools Office:  

    • Job Opening: We are currently looking for a Recording Secretary for the Board of Education. 
    • We continue to need substitutes in our schools. We need subs for teachers, paraprofessionals, and nurses. At this time, the requirements to be a substitute teacher have been eased. This is a great opportunity for college students who are pursuing a degree in education to get hands-on experience with children. If you are interested in applying or have questions, please contact Janet Terenzi at Central Office (860-379-8546) to begin the process.

    NEW! Grade 6 Yearbook:  Sixth grade students will begin raising money for their yearbook next month. From November 2 through November 16 they will be taking orders for Lyman Pies, Otis Cookie Dough, and Simply Shipped Collection. Delivery is planned for December 16, just in time for the holidays! This year we have added a Donation Feature for pies!  You will see an option for Hands of Grace donation when ordering online. If you are using paper orders, indicate that you are paying for a donation pie - Lyman Orchards will choose the pie. All donated items will be delivered to Hands of Grace. For more information contact Penny Miller at millerp@newhtfd.org and thank you for supporting the yearbook committee and the community!
