January 15

Don't forget Waterbury Winterfest starts this weekend!  Attend the opening ceremonies at Dac Rowe and check out the Ice Sculpting demonstration at Axel's frame shop this Friday, participate in the skating party and Christmas tree bonfire on Saturday, and snowshoe and mountain bike in the snow on Sunday!  Plus there's lots more to do all week long and into next weekend!  Pick up a copy of the "Kid Cliff Notes to Waterbury Winterfest" document at either school - this document highlights all the activities appropriate for kids and families. Or for the complete list of events, check the Waterbury Winterfest website at

Think free breakfast is a good idea?  Erika Dolan from the WDSD Food Service is putting together some testimony from parents whose children qualify for the reduced price category that are now taking advantage of free breakfast and lunch. The question is: What difference does it make for you and your kids that the reduced-price lunches you used to pay for are now there for your kids at no cost to you?  If you have quick thoughts (like a sentence or two!) on this question, please submit them by clicking here
