Children's Community School (CCS) Waterbury, CT

50th Anniversary Starts This School Year!

There is something magical in celebrating anniversaries. A school like CCS that has defied the odds -- and whose students have defied the odds -- is a treasure trove of stories.  To celebrate this anniversary throughout the year, CCS is sharing a weekly series of e-mails that it calls “50 Stories for 50 Years.”  To receive these bits of positive news, inspiration and history, join the mailing list.

 This is a list of upcoming activities planned so far.

Sacred Heart Reunion and Tour – Sat., October 27, 2018 from 2-4 pm at CCS

So many visitors come into our building and tell us that they went to school here when it was Sacred Heart School. They love to reminisce about what teacher was in what room and how differently it is arranged now compared to then. Join other “hearts” strolling down memory lane and see the tradition of quality education continue now as CCS.

  • Visit your former classrooms
  • Renew acquaintances
  • Meet current CCS students
  • Enjoy light refreshments and entertainment by Bravo Waterbury!

50th Anniversary Candy Bar Sales will take place all year long!  Students generated the artwork that wraps these chocolate bars and we’ll be selling them for $2 each and 36 per box for groups and businesses that would like to sell them for us and help us raise money.  

50th Anniversary Dinner – Thurs., May 16, 2019* at 5:30 at LaBella Vista

   (*Incorrectly published in newsletter as May 18.  May 16, 2019 is correct date.)

A who’s who of former CCS directors, teachers, staff and students are expected to attend this year’s dinner.  The biggest crowd ever is expected for plenty of networking and sharing of photos featuring five decades of documented happy faces and success stories. 

If you would like to be a part of anniversary events or would like to help with planning, please contact Lynn at 203-575-0659 ext. 212.  Updates will be posted regularly on this website.
