Saying CMT success in pictures

Troup School wanted to make sure that parents and children are well prepared for the upcoming Connecticut Mastery Tests, so the school’s Boost! work team, led by Coordinator Abby Ostruzka, held a fun and informative CMT Bingo Night, according to a release.

"The family atmosphere proved to be a fun way to help familiarize parents with the different sections of the CMTs, how they are scored, the types of questions their children will see, and strategies for success," the release said.
"Augusta Lewis Troup School is one five schools piloting Boost!, the wraparound services partnership with United Way of Greater New Haven, the city of New Haven and the New Haven Public Schools, a component of the School Change initiative," the statement said.

By coordinating community resources and fostering parent engagement, Boost! schools seek to ensure that all students have the support and services they need to succeed, the release said.
