Newtown Blog.pngOne of our Student Leaders members, Uma,sent us the following account of her participation in a recent ceremony noting student responses to last December's Newtown tragedy.  Here's Uma:

 

On Wednesday, June 5th, I went to a ceremony held by the Connecticut Commission on Children with my English teacher, Mrs. Drake, and one of my classmates, Christy Kuesel. This ceremony honored the ideals of love, strength, and community, and specifically how these ideals were demonstrated in student responses to the shooting that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

StudentactivitiesJune23.pngSchool's out for the summer and you probably would like to do something important -or at least FUN!- over the extended holiday.  Our Greenwich Resources for Teens page lists a number of links to various groups and organizations that you can join/volunteer to keep busy (in a good way) over the summer.  There's the American Red Cross, the Boys and Girls Club and Young Life of Greenwich, among others.And we also list various sports groups as well. 

Here at the library, we have the Student Leadership Council, whose next meeting is July 1st.  The Student Leaders help set up programs at the library that middle and high school students want to take part in.   

Whatever group or activity you choose, check out our Resources page here for more information.  Have a great summer!
