The purpose of this survey is to gather your opinions about how well our school is meeting your needs. The survey is confidential, and the faculty will use your responses to help us improve. Work on your own, take your time, and answer all questions as accurately and honestly as possible. 

Once you begin the survey, you cannot restart. Please complete the entire survey in one session.  Thank you for your time!

Congratulations to Crosby's Anthony Orellana "King of the Street"

Anthony OrellanaCrosby’s ‘King of the Street’

Go ahead, pick your favorite soccer

There are many to choose from. You can start with the Lewis Mills girls’ soccer team, winner of a Class M state title in their final BL season. The girls completed title bookends with the boys, who won Class M in 2017.

Or go with the twin titles of the Watertown Highboys and girls’ soccer teams. They were a combined 22-1-5; and for the girls Meadow Mancini capped a stunning four years with 120 career goals. We happily saw the first, scored 13 seconds into her first varsity game as a freshman, and her last, in the state semifinal round this season.

Yep, great stories. But I like another. It is a city soccer story. There aren’t many city soccer stories, but the Anthony Orellana story is brilliant. Orellana is the first city public high school soccer player named the NVL’s most outstanding senior. The first, the one, the only...click here for entire article

Bernardo has been recognized as Athlete of the Week ~ Rep-Am 5/29/18

Bernardo

Click image above to see video of Bernardo's Discus throw

Bernardo Mbaya has been a member of the track team all 4 years of high school. As a senior this year, he has emerged as one of the top discus and shot putters in the state. His throws of 158 feet 3 inches in the discus and 51 feet 3 inches in the shot put place him in the top 3 in both events in Class L and in the top 6 in the state. His discus throw is 1st in the entire state. During the indoor season, he was 3rd in the NVL in the shot put. He is the city champion in both events and broke the meet record in both events at the Torrington Challenge Invitational. He finished 2ndin the Shot Put at the NVL Championship and broke the 53 year old meet record in the discus to earn ALL-NVL honors in both events. This didn’t happen by coincidence. Bernardo has honed his craft during this time. Whether he is hitting the weights or constantly working to perfect his spin or release point, Bernardo puts the work in every day. Bernardo will be attending Southern Connecticut State in the fall with plans of competing for the Owls at the NCAA level.

Awesome day!

Crosby Boys Basketball: Crosby guard on fire in debut

BY MARK JAFFEE

REPUBLICAN-AMERICAN

After two seasons of patiently waiting for a chance to play, Crosby High junior guard Ivan Craig seized the moment in his first varsity action Tuesday night against Torrington at the Crosby Palace.

While he didn’t start, Craig finished with a career-high 20 points, including six 3pointers, in the Bulldogs’ 8963 win over Torrington.

The 6-foot-3 Craig didn’t enter the game until about three minutes into the first quarter.

"Ivan has always been a great shooter, and leading up to the opener, he had a couple of really good practices and really picked up his defensive play," said Crosby coach Nick Augelli. "He deserved to play. If he misses two sh ots the entire night, that’s a lot. He’s good off the dribble and has a quick release. He doesn’t need a lot of room. In the future, he’ll either be starting or playing a lot. He’ll be the sixth man or the five-and-half man. He’ll get a lot of playing time."

Miguel Rivera and Jeremiah Kendall are senior co-captains. Kendall recorded 27 points and Rivera added 17 points against the Red Raiders.

Kendall played in the Hartford Pro-Am League last summer, and that experience elevated his game, said Augelli.

"Jeremiah is a good shooter, rebounder and ballhandler," said Augelli. "He also plays good all-around defense because of his anticipation and instincts. He has the total package. I’d consider him in the top three or four players in the state."

Financial Reality Fair Comes to Crosby

Financial Reality Fair 2017High school students in the Waterbury district had the opportunity to participate in The Financial Reality Fair!

A Financial Reality Fair is a 2.5 hour hands-on experience in which students, after identifying their career choice and starting salaries, are provided a budget sheet requiring them to live within their monthly salary while paying for basics such as housing, utilities, transportation, clothing and food. Of course, there are many temptations for additional spending, and students must learn to balance their wants and needs to live on their own.

Thank You to all who planned, helped coordinate and volunteered their time for this event!

The ACLU summer program consists of a week spent at Georgetown University. Those who are accepted learn about social justice advocacy from lawyers, community activists, journalists, lobbyists and other specialists. Those fortunate to attend will learn skills with issue-focused campaigners as well as practice debates. Experience gained from this week long event can lead to more educational advances and opportunities. All high school juniors and seniors across the United States were open to apply, of which she, among the only 125 students, were chosen by ACLU to attend.

The opioid epidemic is a national crisis that has hit Connecticut hard.  Over 900 people died from opioid overdoses in 2016 in Connecticut and in 2017 the Connecticut Medical Examiner’s Office reported a total of 1038 opioid overdoses.  In response, the Waterbury Board of Education, the Waterbury Department of Public Health, the Mayor’s Task Force Against Substance Abuse and the Central Naugatuck Valley Opioid Workgroup have teamed to invite the United States Attorney’s Office to present an educational event for our entire school community offered by the Heroin Education Action Team (H.E.A.T.).

The program will discuss the statistics and the serious problem with abuse of prescription painkillers, which many times leads users to purchase the cheaper alternative, heroin...

Extensive outreach efforts are made in order to prevent, protect, and connect schools and parents with viable information for them to make informed decisions when it comes to prescription pills and opiates. 

We invite you join us in this timely and critically important community discussion.
