East Haddam Reads

Come meet Author MarcyKate Connolly
Tuesday, March 26th
6:15pm in our Library

MarcyKate Connolly is a New York Times bestselling children's book author who lives in New England with her family and a grumble of pugs. Like the main character in her Shadow Weaver duology, she once had an imaginary friend who did very naughty things, like eating directly from the sugar bowl and playing hide-and-seek with her parents-without telling them-whenever they went department store shopping. Later in life, she graduated from Hampshire College (a magical place where they don't give you grades) where she wrote an opera sequel to Hamlet as the equivalent of senior thesis. It was also there that she first fell in love with plotting and has been dreaming up new ways to make life difficult for her characters ever since.

Athletic Survey

The goal of the athletic department is to conduct a comprehensive program which is consistent with the philosophy of the East Haddam School System.  

As a part of the total education process, our athletic program makes a significant contribution to the personal growth and development of the participants. 
We strive to increase the student’s knowledge as well as to contribute to their maturity, teach ethical and moral values, and motivate them in the pursuit of excellence so we can produce individuals who realize their self-worth
and reach their full potential.

 Part of our continued pursuit to improve our athletic programs in East Haddam is a reflection process based upon feedback from both parents and students. Please find links below that will direct you to a student survey and/or a parent survey. The data collected from these surveys will remain anonymous. The information will help administrators and the athletic director to lead our programs in making beneficial adjustments in order to achieve further success.  

Please take a few moments to complete
the surveys.

  Mock Trial

Congratulations go out to the Mock Trial Team for their success at competition in West Hartford at Kingswood Oxford School.  Our students conducted two separate trials, taking on roles of attorneys and witnesses to the crime provided by Civics First and the CT Bar Association.  During the first trial, they were the prosecution, and during the second trial were the defense.

Each trial consisted of a five minute opener, three witnesses that each had to face seven minutes of direct examination, seven minutes of cross-examination, rebuttal, and at the end, a seven minute closing. During direct examination, the students had to generate their own questions as attorneys, by reading between the lines to use the affidavit to their advantage.  They also had to face the challenge of being questioned by a different school, which required thinking on your feet at all times.  Students also had to admit evidence into the court as well as object to questions on the spot.   

For both trials, the lawyers gave wonderful feedback to our students. 

The majority of the team was brand new this year, and we are proud to say that they won one out of the two trials...and really won overall for taking the risk of such a complex and public activity.

 The best part, is these students did this for FUN!
