Carrigan drama camp teaches basics and beyond
drama camp
‎Around 44 Carrigan Intermediate School students have been busy learning about Shakespeare, script-writing, character roles, monologues, soliloquies, improvisation and more in this year's Summer Theater Program. They will perform in a showcase next week at West Haven High School to highlight all they've learned in the camp, which lasts almost three weeks. The program, which is free for the students and also provides youngsters with snacks, is run by Carrigan teachers Leonard Adams, Anne-Marie LaMotta and Tracy Barletta. The teachers are being assisted by "interns," who are former Carrigan students volunteering with the program. Some are previous participants and others were in Carrigan's spring musical.

CT Association of Schools honors artists, scholar-athletes
The Connecticut Association of Schools recently honored Julia Raucci and Kimberly Hyatt with Connecticut High School Fine Arts Awards and Jeremy Borelli and Stefania Vendrella with Scholar-Athlete Awards for their exemplary work while at West Haven High School. Julia, Kimberly, Jeremy and Stefania are all members of the WHHS Class of 2016. Julia spent an extensive amount of time on the WHHS auditorium stage for WHHS Theatre Workshop productions. Meanwhile, Kimberly's art was displayed at the school district's Fine Arts Festival at the Savin Rock Conference Center. The CAS fine arts award recognizes outstanding seniors who excel in the performing or visual arts. They must possess the qualities of scholarship and leadership. Jeremy and Stefania were captains of their tennis teams this year, while Jeremy, who was this year's valedictorian, was also captain of the boys hockey team, and Stefania, who was ranked 8th in the senior class, was also captain of the volleyball team. The Scholar-Athlete Program recognizes high school seniors whose academic and athletic careers have been exemplary, whose personal standards and achievements are a model to others, and who possess high levels of integrity, self-discipline and courage.
