Glastonbury Public Schools was recognized by the Connecticut Office of the Secretary of State and the State of Connecticut Department of Education as a 2017-2018 Red, White & Blue School District. This distinction is awarded to schools that foster strong civic engagement among students. The theme for this school year's award was local community engagement. The recognition is a wonderful reflection of the work of our History and Social Sciences Department and the abundant and meaningful connections between our school district, it's curriculum, and the Glastonbury community.
