"Back To School" Event Saturday

The Sam Tilery "Back To School" event is this Saturday, August 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Floyd Little Athletic Center, 480 Sherman Parkway, New Haven.

You can get ideas that will help you and your child in school, get information from several community organizations that provide services for children, play games, and more.

It's fun for the entire family! Free backpacks and school supplies will be given away, while supplies last. To get a backpack, your child must accompany you to this event (one per child).

Join Me! "Because You Matter" Kick-off

The "Because You Matter Tour" is back! Please join me and other members of the community in welcoming and encouraging students at Lincoln-Bassett School on Monday, August 28th at 8:00 a.m. in front of the school at 130 Bassett Street in New Haven.

Senator Winfield welcomes students.

Now in its fourth year, the "Because You Matter Tour" greets students at a different local school every month. It is critical for the community to show we support our students. Encouragement and inspiration is a key component to keeping our kids focused on their education.

Given recent events in our community, our youth need our support now more than ever. I hope you can join me.

Check the "Because You Matter Tour" Facebook page every month to see which school we'll be visiting next!
