Young people and their proud parents came together at the Carver Community Center for our 49th Annual Testimonial Dinner on Friday, June 7, 2019. Each year, the Carver Foundation of Norwalk awards Carver students, including current college students, with scholarships and recognition.
This past school year, Brookside and Tracey Elementary Schools were the first schools to adopt Carver’s newest initiative, an after school program to prepare 5th graders for transition to their respective middle schools. Brookside’s principal, Sandra Faoies, serves on Carver’s Board of Directors. Carver honored Tracey’s principal, Theresa Rangel, at the 2019 Child of America gala.
Carver after school 5th graders practiced their respective skills and talents all school year long and their performance demonstrated just how hard they trained. On Thursday evening, May 30, 2019, families, student peers and Kendall Elementary School faculty were bedazzled.
Character.org just designated Tracey Elementary School as a National School of Character. Tracey is the only school in the state of Connecticut to earn this national title, joining 87 schools and 3 districts in 24 states across the country. This follows the state character designation made earlier this year. Character.org will honor Tracey at the 2019 National Forum to be held Oct 24-27, 2019 in Washington, DC. Carver awarded the school’s principal, Theresa Rangel, with the Child of America award on May 3rd.
