Wilton High School students and the Schoolhouse
Every year, Wilton High School seniors working with the Wilton Garden Club help with spring cleanup of the gardens surrounding the Hurlbutt Street Schoolhouse. Our seniors are very helpful getting the training material ready for us to train our incoming school marms.
Volunteering at the schoolhouse
The upkeep of the schoolhouse is left to a few dedicated individuals as well as volunteers. We have been blessed with the youth and families of the Wilton community who come to the schoolhouse and help us by taking care of the lawn and helping with Spring and Fall cleanup. Thanks go to Tony Calderone (not shown), Matt DeFeo (not shown), and Chris McCann (not shown) for each taking care of the lawn for one season during each of the past three years. We would also like to thank the Silva family – Chris, Chrissy, Max, Quinn and Josie for leaf cleanup this year!
Our Schoolmarm in Action
Every year we train a new set of schoolmarms at our schoolhouse so that these schoolmarms can take over the role for the classes that will visit the schoolhouse on their class trip. View the video so see what a day in the life of a schoolmarm is like.
