HARTFORD, Conn. (March 11, 2014) – On Wednesday, March 5th, students from Granby High School attended the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education’s (CABE) annual “Day on the Hill” event in which they, along with principals, superintendents, school board members, parents and other students from across the state, convened to voice their opinions and meet with legislators regarding education in Connecticut.

The day began with a briefing of issues at The Bushnell’s Autorino Great Hall, including the governor’s proposed budget and its effect on local schools districts, with CABE and the legislative leadership. Remarks were made by Governor Malloy, Senator Beth Bye, Senator Toni Boucher, and Representative Andy Fleischmann.

Students, principals, superintendents, school board members, parents, and other attendees then “marched to the Hill” to visit one-on-one with their legislators at the State Legislative Office Building. 

Representing Granby Schools were students Lexi Grimaldi, Paige Holden, Casey Gajewski, and Principal Mary Gadd.

Other districts represented with students at the event include: Branford, Canton, East Granby, Killingly, Madison, Montville, Plainfield, Plainville, Simsbury, Stratford, Waterbury, and the Academy of Aerospace and Engineering.
