The first two months of school have flown by and our first academic quarter has come to a close.  I hope everyone has had a positive transition to the school year and is looking forward to the upcoming holiday season. 

The following are a list of events and activities which will be taking place at Coginchaug over the next quarter of our school year: 

  • Coginchaug students will be participating in a number of activities to honor our veterans and active duty service members on Veterans Day:
    • We will be holding a fundraiser to support Soldiers’ Angels, a non-profit organization which provides aid to members of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, their families, and our veteran population.  
    • Our co-taught class led by Mr. Maher and Mr. Donecker has created a video that pays tribute to our veterans. Please follow this link to view the video.
    • Members of our band will be playing patriotic music between each period throughout the school day.
    • Coginchaug’s DECA organization will be holding a donation drive for our active duty service members.  They are collecting non-perishable foods and personal hygiene items to support our troops.
    • Our US History and American Citizenship classes will participate in a letter-writing campaign to veterans and active duty service members.  This will be done through Operation Gratitude.
  • The annual Coginchaug Powder Puff Football Game will be held on Tuesday, November 20th at 2:15.  Come support our girls as they energize the crowd for the big Thanksgiving eve football game against North Branford.  Kickoff for the football game is 6:00 Wednesday night at Coginchaug. 
  • Our senior class trip to Washington DC is Wednesday, November 14th through Saturday, November 17th.  The trip will provide our students with memories and experiences that will last a lifetime.
  • On Saturday, December 1st Coginchaug Regional High School will host the Community Round-Up.  Please help support our efforts in collecting food for those in need.
  • Our holiday concert will be held on Wednesday, December 19th at 7:30.  Come enjoy the talents of our band and choral groups as they will put on an amazing performance guaranteed to get you into the holiday spirit.
  • The Coginchaug Guidance Department will hold a Junior College Parent Forum on January 3rd.  Representatives from local universities will be discussing and answering questions about the college admission process. 
  • Our Jazz Band and Show Choir Concert will be held on Thursday, January 10th in the Julian B. Thayer Auditorium.


In their own unique way, each of these upcoming events is a great way to build a stronger partnership between our faculty, parents, students and the Durham and Middlefield communities.  I hope to see you and your children at as many of these upcoming events as possible.

If you have any questions or if I can be of any assistance, please call the main office at (860) 349-7215.
