Chapman and Norton Elementary Schools Named Schools of Distinction!

by Sally Bowman Real Estate

The accolades for Cheshire Schools just keep on coming! The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) recently released the results from the Next Generation Accountability System, which finds the “Schools of Distinction” for the 2015-2016 school year. 116 schools throughout the state were recognized for high academic achievement and growth. Of those 116 Connecticut schools, TWO are located in the great community of Cheshire!


Congrats!

Chapman Elementary School | 38 Country Club Road | K-6

&

Norton Elementary School | 414 North Brooksvale Road | K-6


These two schools were named 2015-2016 “Schools of Distinction” by the CSDE because they met one or all of the following criteria:

  • Top 10% of schools based on the Accountability Index score

  • Top 10% of schools with highest growth for all students or those in high-need

  • Top 10% of schools without growth that improved in the Accountability Index


We are very proud of our local schools for their achievements and appreciate their continued dedication for serving the students and families in our community!


If you are interested in living near one of these top rated schools, check out the Current Homes for Sale near Chapman and Current Homes for Sale near Norton! Give Sally Bowman Real Estate a call today or visit our website at http://www.sallybowmanrealestate.com/.

Help Fight MS in Cheshire CT!

by Sally Bowman Real Estate

One of the best things about Cheshire is the sense of service amongst community members. As a community, we take pride in helping others within our local area and beyond. There are often great community events throughout the year that help support great causes and allow us to help others. One such event is coming up! Be sure to mark your calender for Sunday, April 23rd so you can participate in Cheshire’s Walk MS event.

 


Multiple sclerosis is a disease that disables the central nervous system and affects more than 2.3 millions people around the world. The Walk MS events raise money to fund research and development in order to find better treatment options and an eventual cure for patients.

 


Cheshire’s Walk MS is being presented by MacDermid Performance Solutions. It will take place on April 23rd at Cheshire High School (525 South Main Street). Check in begins at 9:00 am and the walk starts at 10:00 am. There will be food provided by Subway, Crystal Rock, and Coca Cola. The community of Cheshire is expected to have more than 2,000 participants at this year’s event and hopes to raise at least $260,000.

 


Help make that goal a reality! Join the rest of the Cheshire community as we strive to make a difference!

 


Register at walkMS.org, call (855) 372-1331, or email fundraisingsupport@nmss.org.
