Principal's Message

Angela Razza head shot

I can't believe June is here! It has been amazing to watch our students learn and grow so much this year. The perseverance of students, families and teachers has been obvious again this year! I am very proud of our students' and teachers' hard work and diligent efforts throughout the year.

Your child's final report card will be sent home on the last day of school, Wednesday, June 12th. If you have any questions about your child's reading results that were recently sent home, please reach out to your child's teacher before the summer break begins.

Now that summer vacation is almost here, it is extremely important that you encourage your child to read, write and use math skills over the summer break. Research shows that students who are not engaged in academic activities during the long summer break forget the skills that were recently taught. This is because children learn best when instruction is continuous. The long summer vacation breaks the rhythm of instruction, leads to forgetting, and requires a significant amount of review of material when students return to school in the fall. Even 10 minutes a day of reading, writing and/or math practice will make a difference! Math i-Ready, Literacy Pro and Amplify Boost are available throughout the summer so your child can access these programs. Although the Google Classroom will be closed out for the summer, these programs should be able to work. As a reminder, Chromebooks will no longer be sent home.

In addition, every student that is returning to Regan School next year will be sent home with our "Summer Challenge." Students who complete the short writing, math and reading activities and return the completed work in August will be given a prize and certificate for completing this challenge. A reading log will also be attached. Please help your child keep this in a safe place and encourage him/her to complete it during the summer break. I will post periodic messages on ParentSquare. You can message me on ParentSquare or send me an email at arazza@waterbury.k12.ct.us if you have any questions over the summer break.

Finally, for those students moving onto middle school, it has been a pleasure serving as your principal. I wish you the best in your future endeavors. Make sure to come back and visit Regan School. We will miss you!

Wishing all families a safe and enjoyable summer with your child!

Best wishes, 
Mrs. Angela Razza, Principal
