Weekly Update - 5/12

Dear NCHS Family,

The time of celebration has begun at New Canaan High School. This week featured a Scholar-Athlete dinner at the Aqua Turf where 1800 student athletes from around the state were honored. NCHS honorees were Jackson Appelt and Molly Keshin.  While it was hard to choose from so many talented student athletes, our students represent NCHS and the community so well and Molly and Jackson truly represent the values that we want in our student athletes.  

Our Visual And Performing Arts Program had a busy week.  We had three different celebrations. There were separate performances honoring band, choir and orchestra. I am alway blown away by the talent of our student body.

I hope that I get to see many of you at some of our end of the year celebrations.  

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. I am sure that your children are so thankful for everything that you do for them.  I know that I can speak for the staff and say thank you for sending us kind, compassionate and talent…

NC Color Run: Last Saturday, we held the first annual NC Color Run and kids color dash.  There were over 1200 people that registered for the event and we raised much needed funds for the New Canaan High School Scholarship Foundation.  This was a true community event and I was thrilled to be a part of something that everyone seemed to enjoy. Please check out the NCSF website ( for more information.  Thank you for being such a caring and supportive community and a special thank you to the countless volunteers who made this event happen!
