By The Numbers


The Percentage of 4th and 5th Graders who take a musical instrument


Beginning in Grade 3, all students are encouraged to play a musical instrument.  While third graders play recorders in class and in concert, fourth grade students can choose a string instrument: cello, violin, viola, or bass.  In fifth grade, interested students can opt for a band instrument, such as a flute, trumpet, clarinet or other such instruments. 


100% Devoted to Green Initiatives

Each day during lunch, parents assist students in discarding their lunch into categories of trash, compost, and recyclables.  Our parent-directed Green Team plans assemblies highlighting special projects for reusing and recycling.

Fiction and Non-Fiction Library Books

Hundreds of books are checked out each week by all students in K-5.  Of the nearly 15,000 titles, almost 8,000 books are non-fiction--the most common of which are books about animals (particularly sports and dogs).

Popular fiction titles include numerous series books and scores of graphic novels.  We also boast a very significant collection of Connecticut Nutmeg novels.
