Congratulations to Nick Howard, Nicola Scandiffio, Stuart Taylor and Nick Zanca who won the Grand Prize in a video contest sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA). We will purchase iPads with the prize money ($3,000), which is awarded to the library featured in the video. The video, which features performances by Stewart Taylor, Katayoun Amir-Alslani, Ashley Feldman, and Isabelle Herde, will be shown at the Opening General Session of the ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans on June 24 in the auditorium of the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. ALA Annual Conference attendance usually nears 30,000. Please congratulate our students and Anna Mase, who supervised the music production.
New Canaan High School Core Values and Beliefs Statement
New Canaan High School is committed to preparing all students to meet the challenges of living in an increasingly global and diverse society. We believe that students learn best in an environment that fosters respect for themselves and others. This allows students to be active participants in their learning, to identify and solve authentic problems and to effectively share their learning with the appropriate audiences. In partnership with parents and the community, we strive to inspire students to the habits of mind and character that will make them lifelong learners.
