    SCHOOL NEWS

    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.

    From the School Nurse: We need sweat pants for boys or girls, sizes 5, 6, and 7. Thank you in advance!

    From the Lunch Program: Don't forget chips, ice cream, and cookies are now available for purchase. Chips and ice cream are $1.00, and cookies are $0.50 each. Exact change only, please!
