A key component of a Portrait of a Graduate is family input. Parents and students will serve on our working committees. In addition, we are asking for your ideas and feedback around the knowledge and skills you think students need when they graduate from high school. The only way the Portrait of a Graduate can reflect the entire Stratford community is if people throughout town share their ideas and experiences.

Nichols held its second Invention Convention, March 2. Students in Fourth Grade displayed their creations with posters, examples, models, and prototypes. They researched many everyday problems to come up with solutions to solve these problems. The gymnasium was turned into a "think-tank" of ideas where inventors proudly displayed and explained their inventions.
Nichols is recycling! An interactive bulletin board in the hallway will help students track how many water bottles are being kept out of the landfills and how much money is being collected due to their efforts. Students and staff will be recycling not only water bottles and paper, but dried out permanent and nonpermanent markers, too. Thank you, Mrs. Castro for spearheading this program!
Recently, students in Mrs. Bedell's Third Grade Class were visited by their Stratford High reading buddies. All of the students were excited to participate in this fun activity.
