    Dear Loma and CT Families,


    Top Three Moments of the Week

    1. Hanging out with Ms. DePiazza’s 7th graders as they began their “to-scale” murals. My big take-away—sidewalk chalk is a fun math tool!
    2. Enjoying the fancy moves at Miss Lisa’s lunchtime dance party. These kids sure know the Cupid Shuffle!
    3. Popping in on a morning yoga session with Ms. Benson’s class. What a great way to start a sleepy Wednesday morning!


    Important Traffic Alert

    CT English will host a countywide cross-country meet on Wednesday, September 26, 2018. Traffic on campus and Summit Road will be very heavy throughout the afternoon.
