BRIDGEPORT— Senators Ed Gomes (D-Bridgeport) and Marilyn Moore (D-Bridgeport) joined community members Thursday morning to greet students at Bassick High School for the first day of school. The group of nearly 40 volunteers, which included parents, community members, alumni, and former and current Bridgeport Public Schools employees, gathered at Bassick at 7:00 a.m. and lined up at the school’s atrium to cheer students on, wish them luck, and encourage them to make the best of their time at school.

“You are all scholars; have a great year; welcome back; we believe in you; go Bassick!,” were a few of the chants that were shouted out as the greeters clapped each time a new group of students entered the school doors.

“There was so much energy in the room, so much enthusiasm,” Sen. Moore, chairperson of the General Assembly’s Committee on Children, said. “We want to let our students know they have support in the community, we believe in them and we wish them all a fantastic and productive school year.”
