HELP WITH WATERING THE GARDEN THIS SUMMER
The Davenport Community Garden is almost in full bloom, with tomatoes, various lettuce plants and flowers overflowing.  To keep our garden growing, we need volunteers to help water the garden.  It is a great family activity that we have participated in and you can invite your friends to join too. Please consider volunteering your family to water the garden for 1 week this summer.  In return for your assistance, please help yourself to some of the ripe produce, or considering dropping off a larger harvest at the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County.  Helping maintain the garden is also a great way for older children to earn public service hours.  Please contact Liz Lebo at [email protected] and notify her of which of the following weeks your family can water:

  • 6/20
  • 6/27
  • 7/4
  • 7/11
  • 7/18
  • 7/25
  • 8/1
  • 8/8
  • 8/15
  • 8/22
  • 8/29

SCHOOL SUPPLIES: Keep it simple and order your school supplies now. We are partnering with SchoolKidz again this year. All of the kits contain items specifically requested by each grade level. The pricing is reasonable and comparable to what you’d find in the stores. Kits are delivered to school and will be on your child’s desk on the first day of school. Order forms went home last week. If submitting the form to school, it must be completed and returned by May 31st. If you order online,  http://www.shopttkits.com the deadline is June 14th. (For online orders our school’s account #is 83390).

NATIONAL SCHOOL CLIMATE SURVEY: For the second year, Stamford Public Schools will be participating in the National School Climate Center’s Climate Survey. This survey focuses on safety, teaching and learning, interpersonal relationships, school resources, and social media by asking students, parents and staff–the real experts, their opinion. Links to take the survey in English or Spanish can be found at Davenport’s web page: http://www.davenportridge.org

PT COUNCIL NEWS: Uconn PEP Class 2016 graduates invite you to “Padres Latino En Accion” for Spanish speaking parents. This event will create awareness for Latino parents about the importance of active participation in the academic and social lives of their children. There will be a group of professional panelists to speak about issues related to adolescents with special guest Mike Meyer, Director of Student Support and Special Programs. Date:  May 25th, 2016, Time:  6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, Place: UCONN Stamford (1 University Place Room  #108), Stamford, CT) Light refreshments will be provided.
