Weekly Message from the Superintendent
Dear Staff and Families,
Spring is in full bloom and so are all of the Spring sports, musicals, plays, concerts and other annual events featuring our talented students. Last Saturday, Amy Beldotti, my husband John, and I had the pleasure of attending the Musical Arts Conference (MAC) winter Percussion Championships hosted by Westhill High School. We witnessed some amazing performances and appreciate that our students have so many opportunities to showcase their talent. In case you haven’t heard, Westhill High won!
Speaking of talent, I was also invited to attend a performance of Mean Girls: High School Edition by the Northstar Playmakers of Westhill High School. The cast belted out some of my favorite songs and I felt as if I was in a Broadway Theater in New York City! If you have time this weekend, this is a must see performance. Click here for ticket information. I am looking forward to the Strawberry Hill Players production of The Prom on April 28-29 and May 5-6 at Stamford High School. Finally, thank you to Rogers International School for inviting Board of Education Members and me to attend your recent production of Newsies, Jr. Please take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy the many performing arts events at our schools. Visit the school websites for show times and ticket information.
BOE President Heftman, State Representative David Michel and I had the honor of attending the moot Supreme Court session held by students in AP/UConn ECE American Government and Politics class. I was so impressed by the students’ professionalism, poise, and knowledge. Kudos to Claude Morest, Social Studies Teacher at the Academy of Information Technology and Engineering, for his hard work in preparing our SPS students for this challenging task.
This is just a sampling of the events, activities, and games that are in full swing. In fact, the athletic schedules alone could keep you busy for countless hours in the next few months. So please take some time to get out and cheer on our tennis, lacrosse, baseball, softball, and volleyball teams. What a great way to spend a weekday evening or weekend afternoon.
Finally, as you know last week we announced the adult education and high school graduation dates. After speaking with the Stamford Police Department and the Building Administrators, we have finalized ceremony times as follows:
- Adult Education – June 1 at 7:00 p.m. at Rippowam Middle School
- Stamford High – June 13 at 2:00 p.m.
- Westhill High – June 13 at 4:00 p.m.
- AITE – June 13 at 5:00 p.m.
Stay Safe and Healthy!
Dr. Tamu Lucero
