Dear Oswegatchie School Community,
We had an excellent turn out at our Back to School Night last night. We were happy to see so many parents, guardians, and family members. We over ninety percent of parents come to meet their child’s teacher and see their classrooms and the school.
On Tuesday, our third grade students each received their own dictionary on on a field trip to the Waterford Public Library. The dictionaries will be given to students through a generous donation from the Waterford Rotary Club in conjunction with the Waterford Public Library.
We were recently informed by the State of CT’s Department of Economic and Community Development- Office of the Arts that we were one of five schools in the state of Connecticut that was awarded an Arts Learning Grant in the amount of $8500. This grant will help to support resident artists working with teachers and our students to integrate arts into our curriculum. These residencies are highly enriching and engaging for our students.
On Monday, November 7th we will be holding a Family Math night in conjunction with the other elementary schools at Clark Lane Middle School. The evening will feature John Felling from Boxcars and One Eyed Jacks. Box Cars and One-Eyed Jacks is a leading Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 10 consulting and publishing company specializing in games and teaching strategies for classrooms across North America. John Felling has been an educator and educational leader for the past 35 years. He is also a published author and consultant providing insight and expertise in the area of Math.

Don’t forget that next Saturday night, September 24th is the Harlem Wizards game @ 6:30 at Waterford High School. Be sure to get your tickets soon!
