Back to School Block Party

Here are a few photos from this afternoon's Back to School Block Party at the WOW Community Learning Center. Every so often it would rain, but that didn't dampen the mood!

Hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill

Bouncy House!

Info table for GEAR UP

 GEAR UP is a new federally-funded grant initiative announced by Governor Malloy earlier this year. The program is designed to help low-income students prepare for college.

5th District candidate Elizabeth Esty stopped by

Board of Education Commissioner Elizabeth Brown was in attendance.
And, of course, Alderman Greg Hadley, who runs the WOW Center.

Jon Clyde D'Angelo rapping with the students.

The performance was introduced by two of Waterbury's 3rd grade teachers, which was great. You know a teacher really cares about his students when he volunteers to spend his Saturday with them.
