Latimer Lane School is a diverse and character-driven community of excellence! The students, staff, and parents of Latimer Lane School are committed to seeing every child achieve their fullest potential, in a socially, emotionally, and academically supportive environment.
Latimer Lane's grade 5 and 6 students were fortunate to hear children's author Jeanne Zulick Ferruolo speak to them about the writing process. Ms. Zulick Ferruolo explained a story chart to keep track of characters, plots, and events. Ms. Zulick Ferruolo's book, A Galaxy of Sea Stars, is on the 2023 Intermediate Nutmeg Book Award Nominee's list.
Latimer Lane students listen to author and illustrator Lizzy Rockwell as she spoke about her process for creating stories. Ms. Rockwell read her book, The All-Together Quilt, which was a 2021 Connecticut Book Award winner. Students asked questions about the story, the fabrics used in the quilt, and the book's illustrations.
An enthusiastic crowd of more than 250 people filled the cafeteria at Henry James Memorial School for the return of in-person Bingo. The neon was glowing, the pizza was delicious, and the prizes were mesmerizing. Many thanks to all who helped to make this Latimer Lane event a terrific evening for everyone.
Latimer Lane's driveway was lined with students and staff members dressed in red, white, and blue. They held signs and posters they made to show their appreciation for the Veterans' service. Students cheered, clapped, and waved U.S. flags as the Veterans made their way down the driveway.
Members of the Asian Performing Arts performed at Latimer Lane on a beautiful, but very windy, fall afternoon. The silk ribbon fan dance proved to be a challenge because of the breeze, but these professionals took it all in stride and continued with the show.
