Here are photos (in our Facebook album and in the slideshow below) of students attending Carver’s after school program yesterday at the Classical Studies Magnet Academy (CSMA). These photos were taken during the enrichment hour when our young people can participate in activities of their choice such as Student Council; Videography; Portrait Sketching; Circuit Boards; Coding; Film Club; Brain Benders; Math Gaming; Boys With Pride; Martial Arts; Basketball Practice; and Art & Design.
West Rocks and Ponus Middle Schools will be fielding FIRST LEGO teams this next Saturday in New Haven to participate in the Elm City Robo Fest FIRST LEGO League (FLL) competition.
For more then a decade, the Fairfield County Alumnae Association of Kappa Kappa Gamma has been volunteering at Carver’s after school program. Members of the sorority travel to the Carver Community Center, as they did today, with a special book to read to our K-5 students. It is followed with homemade desserts and an art project.
Each November election day, while the schools closed, Carver students visit and experience life at several prominent colleges in Connecticut and the New York City Metro Area. This year, 19 high school students (including three seniors) visited Iona College and Mercy College.
Carver begins its second year and completes the first month of this new school year successfully with the first annual Pumpkin Treat Extravaganza for the Classical Studies Magnet Academy (CSMA) students in Bridgeport.
In all our programs across Norwalk and in Bridgeport we highly value Parent Engagement. 26 CSMA parents assisted with the Pumpkin Treat Extravaganza and 42 parents donated treats for this event.

Special thanks to our generous hosts, Callie Sullivan and Hugh Montgomery, and to our devoted event committee members, Ingrid and John Hess, Jane and Sam Marrone, Margaret and Patrick Steele, Wendy Winnick Baskin and Rich Baskin, and Terrie and Jay Wood.
Additional thanks to longtime Darien friends and advocates such as the Community Fund of Darien, Rotary Club of Darien, and Carver’s many Darien donors and volunteers.
Connections! These house parties are a valuable time for friends to gather in their communities to learn about and celebrate Carver’s mission and accomplishments.
We are deeply grateful to the Darien Connections committee members and our generous hosts for their generosity and thoughtfulness in opening their networks of friends and their lovely home to learn about and to support Carver youth.
