Our School-Family Style Pizza Day on

April 18th was a great success!


Students were encouraged to help themselves to appropriate portions of pizza and salad, while engaging in conversation with peers, family members and teachers.

SA Community Awarded Two Grants to Support School Programming

SA won a $25,000 Year of the Book grant from the Children’s Literacy Foundation, based in

Waterbury. The grant will provide funding for each student at SA, including our 30 preschoolers, to take home 10 new books as well as funding for new books at the SA school library and Fletcher Free Library. CLiF will provide literacy programming for students and parents throughout the 2017-2018 school year.

SA also won a $9,211 CityMarket Co-op Patronage Seedling Grant to support food systems education. Funding will allow us to establish an irrigation system for our school gardens as well as create a mobile processing/cooking kit.
Thank you CLiF and City Market for your generosity to our school!

Enrollment for the next school year 2017-2018 is open.
Registration for school year 2017-2018 has now closed. School placement notification will be sent out the week of April 3rd, 2017. If there are more first choice registrations than there are spots, we will look at families’ 2nd choices. When a student doesn’t receive their first choice school, a district employee will contact the family to discuss their options for schools. Applications received after February 24, 2017 will be considered based upon available space.
