Hoops for Heart – Raised $6078.00 this year!

This year Nichols School participated in the American Heart Association "Hoops for Heart" program to raise awareness of heart disease and also to raise money to donate to the American Heart Association. Mr. Mike Ginicola provided special basketball activities during the students' PE time during Hoops for Heart Week. School nurse, Mrs. Susan Romatzick put students' names on a Scare Squad Bulletin Board across from her office.

Many students also took a challenge to either: choose water over sugary drinks, eat a fruit or vegetable with every meal or to exercise 60 minutes every day! Congratulations to all who took that challenge.

Cole Richardson was the top fundraiser and raised $810.00. His sister, Olivia Richardson, raised $610.00, making her the second highest fundraiser.

Other students who raised over $300.00 were Mallory Papin, $386.00; Kayleigh Vongvirasak, $366.00; and Brandon Hubbard, $355.00.

Dear Parents, Guardians, and School Community Members,

We are not taking lightly the events that unfolded in Parkland Florida, or what is again in the news involving an area closer to our home and neighboring towns (Staples High). I want each of you to know and fully understand that the Stratford Board of Education and Stratford Public Schools are working close and hand in hand with the Stratford Police Department in the effort to keep all of our Stratford students safe.
