Soldier Visits Tinker Students

June 15, 2017 - Throughout the school year, fifth graders in Miss Ouellette's class at Tinker School have been writing to a soldier stationed overseas, sending him letters and cards to express their gratitude for his service and to give him a small sense of home. Now home, Technical Sargent Dan Pittari visited the students in their classroom this morning to thank them for their year-long correspondence.

Sgt. Pittari explained he was unable to send letters back to the students while deployed but that he greatly appreciated all of their notes and cards, and that he shared them with other soldiers. He was stationed in the United Arab Emirates but was sent out to work in several other Middle Eastern countries. His job was repairing generators and motors for equipment used by our troops.

Farm Visitors Delight

What could be more fun than petting a mini-horse or a donkey? How about petting a small pen-full of sheep, a rabbit, ducks, a pig and a calf? Students in kindergarten and first grade at Tinker School had the opportunity to meet all of these animals June 14th as "Farm on Wheels" came to visit. Many Waterbury children never even have the chance to catch a glimpse of a cow or sheep, so they were absolutely delighted when they were allowed to go inside the small pen, a few at a time, and touch or pet each of these animals.
