NaugatuckHigh School

Updated list: Supplies needed for CNA program

Dear Friends and Families:

As you know, Naugatuck High School is focused on providing students with as many opportunities as possible to pursue their excellence, each and every day, both at Naugatuck High School and in their post-secondary pursuits.  This coming school year, we are very excited to announce the addition of a Certified Nurses Aide class to our Program of Studies. This class will allow students interested in the health sciences field to gain valuable knowledge and experience to prepare them for continuing their education beyond Naugatuck High School.  While this is an amazing opportunity for the students here in Naugatuck, the equipment list needed to run the program is extensive- in order to reduce the costs associated with the program as much as possible, we are looking to the community for donations. Below, you will find a list of supplies that we are in need of to kick off the program in August.  If you, or anyone you know, is able to help with donations or charitable contributions, it will help us continue to offer the highest level of education to our students.  

If you are able to donate any of the items on the list below, please contact Jennifer Teixeira in the main office at Naugatuck High School at (203) 720-5400 to coordinate.  If you have any questions about the CNA program, please contact Kristina Wallace, Associate Principal, at (203) 720-5412.

Thanks, in advance, for your partnership and support!
