COLCHESTER- C3’s strong working relationship with the Colchester Public Schools enabled the two groups to quickly come together for a new grant opportunity. In mid-June a panel of twelve, consisting of school staff, the Board of Education Chair, and C3 members took part in an interview to present a comprehensive and collaborative plan for meeting early literacy needs in Colchester. In August, we were notified that Colchester was one of six districts in Connecticut selected to receive $50,000 for its Early Literacy Partnership! The funds are being awarded by the William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund, The Children’s Fund of Connecticut, and the Connecticut Department of Education.
