Seventh graders had an awesome time at the annual Seventh Grade Picnic on the Woodbridge Green. Music, games, pizza, popsicles, and raffle prizes made a cool event on a warm evening.
With a cohesive Youth/Human Services staff, Woodbridge police presence for safety, and many willing volunteers, students had a great meet up of Woodbridge and Bethany incoming middle schoolers. Students also had the opportunity to meet Amity Middle School Assistant Principal Thayer Doyle, Bethany First Selectman Paula Cofrancesco, and Woodbridge Deputy First Selectman Sheila McCreven who each greeted the teens.
