Ansonia schools held a district-wide “Financial Literacy Day” Thursday with a variety of lessons teaching students the importance of personal money management.
As part of the program, high school students visited at the city’s other three schools to teach lessons to younger kids.
In Nancy Tingley’s second-grade classroom at Prendergast School, for instance, AHS senior Gianee Benavites read the children’s book “Supermarket” by Kathleen Krull, followed by an activity about shopping and spending led by fellow AHS senior Yarisa Ayala.

Full day kindergarten should be implemented for the children of Shelton.
Currently, Connecticut has 103 school districts that offer full day kindergarten including Derby, Seymour, Trumbull, and now Monroe, which will begin a full day kindergarten this coming school year.
Our children are being left behind during this critical time for education. Fifteen minutes a day allotted for reading, math etc. is not adequate to keep our children up to the speed of the surrounding towns.
