"Art at a Distance"

Staples students practice their skills with distance learning art assignments

Staples High School seniors Tomaso Scotti and Manny Vouse, two of approximately 300 top Connecticut seniors who excel in the arts, were scheduled to be honored at the Connecticut Association of Schools  High School Outstanding Arts Awards Banquet on April 7. The banquet, held annually at the Aqua Turf in Southington, was unfortunately canceled this year due to the Coronavirus outbreak. The CAS recognizes two seniors in each member high school for their outstanding ability in the performing and visual arts. Selected by Staples staff to receive this honor, Scotti was recognized for art and Vouse for music. 

The Connecticut Association of Schools serves Connecticut's K-12 public and parochial schools in all areas of inter-school activity. The association represents over 1,100 schools in the state. The Connecticut Association of Schools is a non-profit organization located in Cheshire, Connecticut.
