Dear Oswegatchie School Community,


We will be participating with Waterford Youth Services and the Interfaith Food Locker to  “Stuff the Bus” on November 14th .  Flyers from Youth Services will go home with students soon. We ask that families who are able bring in canned goods on that day. The bus will go between the schools in Waterford collecting donations. The “Stuff the Bus” campaign helps Waterford residents who are in need with food for the holidays.  They also accept donations of frozen turkeys. If you’d like to donate a turkey please call Youth Services at (860)444-5848.


I’m very excited to announce that Grade 4 teachers and students will work with Master Teaching Artist Derron Wood. Derron met with teachers this month to plan for the upcoming residency. Students will help create and present 4 Connecticut Shadow History Plays through the art of shadow puppetry. Connecticut Shadow History Plays are a collection of plays written by CT teachers based on the state’s local legends. I am actually the co author of some of the plays. Some of these tales include The Tell Tale Apples, The Charter Oak, George Washington’s Horse, and Mother Bailey. In the residency, students rehearse and perform these plays in the style of a shadow puppet show under the guidance of theatre professionals. To create these unique productions, the students will work together on every aspect of the show from sound effects, narration, and manipulation of puppets. The final product is a fun and educational presentation that will be performed for parents, peers, and faculty alike. Derron will meet with all four classes ten times, ending in performances for students and parents.
