Mission: Betterment of school facility, school supplies and children's programs.
Programs: The culture program allows the second and fourth grade class to participate in the learning to look program at the metropolitan museum of art. The lessons learned through art classes help teach children to boserve and reflect, which carries over into problem solving skills in math and greater comprehension in numerous other areas. The program enables classroom experiences to be enhanced at the end of the course by a visit to the metropolitan museum of art, where volunteers accompany students to see firsthand many of the works of art featured in their classes. Students are also exposed to author visits to further encourage reading and writing.

The activities include field trips designed to support the curriculum including the bronx zoo, natures classroom, peabody museum, stamford museum and nature center, ward pound reservation, bridgeport cabaret, norwalk maritime center and the new canaan historical society.
our musical program, allows all fifth graders to audition and voluntarily participate in an annual stage musical. This program enables students to build on all aspects of their classroom music education. In addition, students learn about various aspects of theater including acting, singing, dancing/choreography, set design, backstage crew work and planning. Students participating in set design and construction also build on their art and math skills. This program is provided for both education and social enrichment, and enables students to build self confidence, work cooperatively in small and large groups and encourage public speaking skills in a fun environment.
