03/10/08 - Hamilton Avenue School Students Will Excell On The CMT's If The Biology Questions Are About How Mold Effects Children In A Small Classroom.

Hamilton Avenue Children Know All About Mold
And How It Effects There Little Bodies.

Rau: We'll do well on CMT's

Greenwich Time - Staff Writer

... When {Hamilton Avenue School Principal Damaris Rau} started, the school building was plagued by mold, and students and staff soon were forced to move to a temporary building so their school could be renovated. Since then, her school has been cited by the state for being racially imbalanced, and rising enrollment has created crowded classrooms. In the meantime, their original building, which was supposed to be ready last September, has had major construction delays and won't be ready until this fall.

To top it off, mold was discovered in the temporary building on Feb. 29, which led officials to cancel classes all last week, close the building for the rest of the school year and disperse Hamilton Avenue students to six schools around the district.....


Molded Cieling Tiles were discovered over one year ago and Hamilton Avenue School parents were never told there children were in danger.

...some parents are worried. At recent public meetings with school officials, they have said the unexpected weeklong break may cause students to lose their readiness to take the test.

"I'm not happy about the CMT (delay). The kids were all very well prepared," said Dawn Nethercott, co-president of the school PTA. "It's an unfortunate situation."

All Greenwich public schools begin the CMT testing at the start of March and must finish by the end of the month, as in the rest of the state. The tests are used to gauge a school's progress under the federal No Child Left Behind law, which determines if a school should be taken over by the state if it does not show adequate progress over time.

Like others, Hamilton Avenue School teachers began heavy test preparation in late February, only to have classes canceled this week....

"The last thing they wanted was a week off," said Cathy Delehanty, president of the teachers' union.

Quote Of The Day: "I think the kids will do the best they can. That's a pretty tough group," John Curtin, assistant school superintendent of research and evaluation said. "If there's any school in the district that's prepared to deal with adversity, it's Hamilton Avenue."

That's right John, "they are a pretty tough group". It is not easy to learn when you have headaches, prolonged sinus infections and your teacher is complaining of about headaches, nausea, and respiratory problems.

I am sure that the Glenville Students will also be
a "pretty tough group" too.
