Summer Stars Program

Summer Stars!

That’s the new name of the City School District of New Rochelle’s summer education program. The name, suggested by Jefferson Elementary School fifth-grader Maximiliano Vivaldo, was the overwhelming choice in a survey of students in grade two through eight, and was one of 160 suggestions received.

Superintendent Jonathan Raymond announced the new name at the recent Board of Education meeting. He said that Vivaldo’s submission encouraged use of the name with this note: “In summer, we should do fun stuff.”

Families will receive emails regarding summer learning and employment opportunities.
