GROUNDBREAKING CEREMONY- Thank you very much to all who were able to attend our groundbreaking ceremony this morning. What a memorable occasion it was! Our Superintendent, Mr. Jason Hartling, enlightened our students and staff and the event was both uplifting and dignified. Special thank you to LMS eighth grade students Genesis Gilbert and Aidan Greely for their participation!

INTERNET SAFETY PRESENTATION- On Wednesday, April 26th at 7:00 p.m. former Connecticut State Trooper Scott Driscoll will be presenting a highly acclaimed program specifically intended for parents about internet safety, and user safety for the countless social media apps our children are using. His company "Internet Safety Concepts" was born out of the need to educate both students and adults about the implications of posting information/material especially that which is personal. This is open to any parent interested in learning about the various apps students are using, their purpose, as well as their implications. This is particularly important today, and the message likely will be for the foreseeable future. The program will be held in the Ledyard High School auditorium. Mr. Driscoll will be presenting to both students at the middle school as well as high school during the day as well.

GETTYSBURG PARENT MEETING- On Thursday, May 4th at 6:00 p.m. we will be holding a mandatory parent meeting for all parents of students traveling to Gettysburg. This is a very important meeting as all of the particulars of the trip including the itinerary as well as rules and expectations will be communicated. In the event a parent/guardian is unable to attend this meeting, it is necessary to contact me to schedule a different time that will work. The information is that important, and it is imperative that you all hear it first hand. Thank you for your understanding and support!

GENCYBER AGENT ACADEMY- It is a pleasure to announce an opportunity occurring this summer for students interested in technology who will be in the 9-12th grade in the fall. The University of New Haven’s College of Engineering received a grant for students to attend a cyber security summer academy sponsored by the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation. It's a one-week day camp called GenCyber Agent Academy (https://cyberagent.newhaven.edu) that will run the week of July 24 – July 29, 2017. The program is granted-funded, so accepted students will participate for free. The application deadline is  May 15. If you have students interested in a technology field, this could be a great experience and a nice mention on their college applications. Only 40 students will be accepted. Flier is attached.
