    Dear Loma CT English Families,

    My Top Three Moments of the Week
    1.  Watching the 5th graders practice their awesome flash mob dance to  Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” (see photo)
    2.  Having the honor of judging the CT costume contest.  There were some super funny, scary, and original costumes! (see photos)
    3.  Checking out the donut-on-a-string contest in Mrs. Templeton’s kindergarten. It was probably the cutest moment of my Halloween day! (see photo)

    I hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween!

    Construction Corner
    Our reconstruction project is continuously moving forward. Wing A’s roof is complete and is water tight. The windows have been installed in Wing A. The doors have arrived and the exterior doors have been installed as well. The stucco contractor has completed lathing Wing A and brought in the batch plant silo. It contains an engineered stucco mix that is approved by the DSA (Division of State Architect) and will create consistent mix every time a batch of stucco is made. Wing B’s roof frame is complete and the contractor has started to sheet the roof. Once the sheeting is complete, a sheeting inspection will take place and then the roofing will be installed. We now are currently 187 days into construction and have had zero injuries during this project.

    Thank you,
