NORWALK, Conn. -- The Norwalk High School’s Governance Council is hosting its first-ever Info Expo Wednesday.
This free event is open to families and students in the Norwalk High School district and is geared toward students and families in Norwalk High School, Nathan Hale Middle School and West Rocks Middle School.
The expo will take place from 6-8 p.m. in the Norwalk High School cafeteria. At the end of the expo, visitors are invited for a short musical performance in the school auditorium. According to Governance Council parent representative, Gloria Tenofsky, “The idea for this event came about because the Governance Council wanted to do something tangible so that all students have the support to succeed.”
The expo will showcase local organizations who provide services to youth and families. Each organization will have its own table and visitors are encouraged to visit each table to learn about what they offer.
Norwalk Public School’s School to Career Coordinator, Lisa Rivieccio is thrilled with the response to date.
“We’ve had 29 organizations tell us they will participate," she said. "The Norwalk Public Library, Stepping Stones Museum, Mid-Fairfield Child Guidance, Kids in Crisis, Human Services Council, in addition to student groups and clubs, are just a sample of those attending. We are excited about this event and truly believe it will help our families make connections to local resources.”
The Norwalk High School Governance Council is comprised of students, parents, teachers and community members. The councils were created by the state’s recent education reform law to enable parents, school staff, students and community leaders to work together to improve student achievement. They serve in an advisory capacity and are charged with assisting the school administration in making programmatic and operational changes to improve the school’s achievement.
