Happy birthday, Tashua! Hundreds of students, family members and local residents packed into Tashua Elementary School’s new playground area to celebrate the school’s 50th birthday Sept. 18. The Trumbull Father’s Club grilled hotdogs and hamburgers, and local cover band, Forget Paris, performed for the crowd.
Rep. Dave Rutigliano, whose children attended Tashua, was on hand to announce the new basketball court mural design. The court and playground fields recently received a significant facelift to correct drainage issues and wear. The former mural, a map of the United States, was a local favorite, but school officials wanted the students to have a say on a new choice.
