Northeast Garden and Outdoor Classroom


Students have been enjoying our 25 raised bed, bilingual garden this year. They will be having a fall harvest with their classes over the next few weeks. The fennel is bountiful and are covered with swallowtail caterpillars! The children can spy the caterpillars in various stages of development.


Pink Out Support

Participation in the Northeast Pink Out last Friday was inspiring! Our students and staff contributed more than $600 to Stamford Hospital and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For more information about Pink Out and how your contributions will help with education and supporting the greater Stamford community, please watch the video recorded by Northeast Kindergarten teacher, Ms. Blackwell on our PTO website.

Next month’s Cultural Wall will feature Native American Heritage Month (November). If you would like to donate artwork, posters, items or time please contact the PTO.

Book Fair Gratitude

We want to say a BIG thank you to our Northeast families for supporting the Fall Book Fair! This was our most successful Fair to date, and we raised some much needed funds for supplies and enrichment programs. All of your generous, gently-used book donations allowed the PTO to give away hundreds of free books to our students and teachers.

If you have unused e-Wallet money, it will stay in your account and can be used this week (Oct 4-8) during our virtual book fair, or at our next event in the spring.

Thank you again, and happy reading everyone!!
