Wands for Wildlife
Sophomore student T. Maffucci is trying to raise awareness of the organization Wands for Wildlife. She is asking for donations of used mascara wands to help save animals. The wands are able to be reused to clean oil, larva, fly eggs, mites, infectious mud, and other contaminate off of wildlife. Once the parasites are cleaned off the animal’s fur or shell, they are released back into the wild. By donating your mascara wands you could save the lives of hundreds of animals. So, if you have any old mascara brushes laying around, or just want to help by spreading awareness, please go to Mrs. Garcia-Tripp’s classroom between now and June 7 for more information.

Service Academy Night:
Wednesday, April 24, 2019, the Connecticut Congressional Delegation will be holding our annual Academy Night for students and recent graduates who are interested in attending one of our nation’s preeminent military academies – U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and the U.S. Naval Academy. This is a great opportunity for students to meet with representatives and cadets/midshipmen from each of the academies. This event will also give students a chance to meet with the service academy coordinators from each of our congressional offices to learn more about our individual nomination processes.
