The North Haven Education Foundation has been hosting the Adult Spelling Bee at the High School now entering its fifth year. It is scheduled for Thursday, April 25, beginning at 6 p.m. There are over 30 teams entered in the contest to compete for the “Best of the Hive” Trophy. What people love about the event is that it brings the entire community together to benefit the students of North Haven Schools. There are teachers, firefighters, town officials, local businesses and many more competing in a fun night for all.
The North Haven Education Foundation, Inc. encourages and supports academic excellence by funding projects and initiatives that enhance or extend learning opportunities for students and the community beyond the conventional budgeting resources of the school system. Funds raised from NHEF have built science labs in the entire town’s elementary schools, sent local culinary students to Disneyworld; helped the art department with new equipment and many more grants that are on our website at www.nhedfoundation.org.
There is no admission fee, but there is a requested donation to help support NHEF’s mission. Principal Dr. Dallai and Bernard Pellegrino, chairman of the NHEF have signed on for another year and the highlight of the night is the North Haven Kindergarten kids singing “Baby Bumblebee” song. If you interested in supporting the event or attending, contact board member, Brian Coughlin at 203-215-5821.
