PHOTOS: 11 NCHS Student-Athletes Sign Early Letters of Intent To Play Sports in College

Eleven New Canaan High School seniors signed early Letters of Intent on Wednesday to play sports in college starting next year. The photos below are from a signing ceremony overseen by NCHS Athletic Director Jay Egan, held in the Wagner Room. Egan called it “Probably the happiest day” of the year, marking the “culmination lot of hard work, lot of time, lot of effort and a lot of dreams young people are realized by what they have earned.”

Each student received an engraved ‘New Canaan High School’ pen that included the date of Signing Day. We also asked the student-athletes why their future schools are a good fit, and put their responses next to the photos. ***

“It was the best balance between social and academics for me, out of all the schools I was looking at and I really liked the people there.”

Campbell Conners

Lacrosse
Butler
“Honestly I thought it was a good location for me, just because everyone here stays on the East Coast and they want to go to the same schools and when Butler started looking at me, it was all the way in the Midwest and I was kind of scared about that, but then I felt like the fit was just right.

Letter: New Canaan Parents Voice Support for a Later School Start Time

The New Canaan Board of Education is evaluating a change to school start times to allow our older, sleep-deprived students more time for sleep. A group of New Canaan parents created the Healthy School Start Times website to inform parents about this important health concern and to collect signatures on a petition asking the BoE to prioritize changing start times. Over 700 New Canaan families have signed the petition and commented on why they consider the issue to be a priority. Some of the comments are included here and the rest can be found on the website. We hope New Canaanites will read what their neighbors are saying and add their own voice to the petition:

“I have two boys who are currently in elementary school and will go through the entire NCPS system.

Police Report Details ‘Football Gate’-Marked Cash Bundles Found in Office of Former Assistant to NCHS Athletic Director  [CORRECTED]

District officials declined to pursue a criminal case against a former assistant to the New Canaan High School athletic director even after more than $1,500 in cash was found in her office in bundles labeled ‘Football Gate’ from games that had taken place several months earlier, records show. The cash, found in $20 bill bundles labeled ‘Football Gate 11-6-[15]’ ($1,060) and ‘Football Gate 11-13-15’ ($500), were found in Anne Tomaselli’s office at NCHS after she’d been put on administrative leave in March 2016 for failing to report overpayments made by the district into her direct deposit account totaling more than $30,000, according to a police report. “Tomaselli did work the ticket stand during football games and was in charge of all cash coming in to pay for tickets,” Police Sgt. Peter Condos, a detective, said in an incident report at the time of the investigation, obtained by NewCanaanite.com through a formal request. “There are also allegations that she paid her workers in cash directly from the gate receipts, which is a clear violation of school policy, according to [Superintendent of Schools Dr. Bryan] Luizzi,” Condos wrote in a March 18, 2016 incident report. 

Condos added: “Many questions initially arise from this discovered football gate money: Why was it in her office?
