Pink Out Donation

Waterbury Public School staff donated $3,433.60 to "The Women for Women Organization" at St. Mary’s Hospital.  This is the second year that the Waterbury Public Schools participated in the annual Pink Out event, which not only raises funds to provide free mammograms for women who would otherwise be unable to afford one, but it also provides the school district with an opportunity to spread the word about breast cancer awareness and prevention. Deputy Superintendent Robert Henry explained, "Everyone who wore pink on Friday, October 27th, helped promote awareness of this devastating health issue that impacts one in eight women here in the United States. We hope these funds help the hospital in its mission to save lives."  Representatives of St. Mary's Hospital Foundation Ann Smith (right) and Carrie Fuller (second from left) noted that 118 women were able to obtain mammogram services through September 30, 2017 as a result of all funding last year. Pat Moran, Supervisor of Family and Community Engagement (second from right) helped coordinate the district's Pink Out event this year.

Early Dismissal Times Changed for All Schools

The times for all categories of Early Dismissal have been changed to a single Planned/Weather/Emergency Dismissal time for each school. There is no longer a separate dismissal time for planned early dismissal days (for example, for Professional Development) versus emergency early dismissal (for example, for an impending winter storm). Please click here for view the schedule for all schools.

November Newsletter Highlights!

Duggan School Newsletter

November, 2017           Dr. Patricia Frageau, Principal

Important Message from the Principal on the Importance of Attendance

  • Your children can suffer academically if they miss 10 percent of school days. This can be just one day every two weeks and can happen before you know it.
  • Attendance matters as early as kindergarten. Studies show children who miss too many days in kindergarten and first grade can struggle academically in later years. They often have trouble mastering reading by the end of third grade.
  • Excused and unexcused absences represent lost time in the classroom and a lost opportunity to learn.
  • Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school-and themselves. Start building this habit early so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day, is important.
