Manchester – Governor Chris Sununu visited families at St. Casimir School last night to hear about their successes and challenges in finding the right educational fit for their children.
“It is great being in Manchester this evening to listen to parents, grandparents, teachers, and students share their stories about why we need to create a 21st century education system in New Hampshire that empowers parents and allows kids to succeed no matter their needs,” said Governor Sununu.
It was standing room only in the downtown Manchester school where diversity abounds and most of the children are multilingual.
“I love the small class size and the personal attention that my child receives here at St. Casimir School.” said CSF Parent Lynn.
“My sixth grade son, Daniel, had an IEP for special needs and recently did very poorly on a test in class because he has trouble with writing, instead of accepting that my son did not understand the material, his wonderful teacher Mrs. Reynolds, here at St. Casimir, seeing that he was struggling, spontaneously gave him the test verbally and he scored 100 percent! Daniel really struggled in public school and I am so relieved that he is safe and successful here.”
Ms. Caraballo, St. Casimir’s principal and fifth grade teacher, said there are currently 69 children at the school in grades K-8 and there is room for the school to grow. Mrs. Caraballo also worked as an ESL for Adults instructor and is a co-founder of Latinos Unidos de New Hampshire, a non-profit organization that organizes the annual Latino Festival of New Hampshire and funds scholarships for Latino students. She translates St Casimir School materials and communications in multiple languages for families.
If your child is struggling in his or her current school and you would like to visit St. Casimir School to see if it is the right educational fit for your family, you can contact Ms. Caraballo to schedule a visit at firstname.lastname@example.org.
