St. Aloysius School parents Gayle Rigione and Diane Blasco, and Carver Board member Janine Smith, and their children and fellow St. Aloysius students organized a Fall Leaves project for Carver’s CASPER K-2nd grade kids yesterday. They discussed cycles in nature and how reduced sunlight in the fall causes the leaves to change color. Carver kids traced their hands on construction paper resembling leaves, colored in their images and then glued them to a headband they wore with pride. And then they all had GoGurts and other nutritious snacks!
St. Aloysius School is located in the heart of New Canaan, adjacent to the St. Aloysius Church. The school is coeducational for kindergarten through grade 8. It draws its student population from fifteen zip codes. St. Aloysius School offers a unique balance of faith, academic excellence, and service to the community. A measure of the school’s success is that 30% of the eligible student body qualified for the Johns Hopkins Talent Search in 2010. The school is a 2010 Blue Ribbon School recognized by the United States Department of Education for its students’ achievements in reading and mathematics. This achievement places St. Aloysius in the top 50 of all participating private schools nationally.
Carver thanks St. Aloysius School for caring!
