The Elementary School Receives a Library Grant from the State

 'Stories From Around the World'

This year, we have been fortunate enough to receive an Arts Through Learning grant from the state of Connecticut.  The grant will be used to support our Storyteller in Residence, Ann Shaprio.  Ann will spend ten sessions working with second-grade students,  teaching the art of storytelling.  Students will learn a variety of diverse stories and  folktales and will present the stories to other grade levels in our building during a culminating program.  The “Stories From Around the World” unit will begin in early January and will conclude at some point at the end of February.  Ann will also spend some time presenting to other grade levels.  We are very excited to be a recipient of the grant and eager to welcome Ann into our school!
