Hamilton Ave. students showcase results of museum partnership

On June 7, as the culmination of a year-long museum-school partnership, students from Hamilton Avenue Magnet School mounted an exhibition at the Greenwich Historical Society to showcase what they learned during field trips to Bush-Holley Historic Site.

Greenwich Education Group held its seventh Annual Secondary School Fair at the Eastern Greenwich Civic Center in Old Greenwich. More than 100 secondary school directors of admission were present as well as over 500 prospective students and their families from New York City, Fairfield, Westchester, Putnam and New Haven counties. Due to the success of the event, GEG’s Founder and Executive Director Victoria C. Newman and Co-Director of Day and Boarding School Advisory Services Muffy Fox were able to present a check for over $6,200 to Joseph Siciliano, Director of Parks and Recreation for the Town of Greenwich, to support the Parks and Recreation Youth Scholarship Fund.
