STAMFORD, CT - Mayor David Martin on Thursday met with new Stamford High School Principal Ray Manka and received a tour of the school, which has undergone significant changes over the summer. Through a collaborative effort between city workers and workers from the schools, floors were cleaned and waxed, the school’s courtyards were cleared of trees and vines, and the main office has an upgraded layout with cosmetic improvements, among many other changes.

“Principal Manka has an infectious, positive attitude, and it only made sense that he and Stamford High students start the school year off right with a building that is welcoming, clean, and full of light,” said Mayor Martin. “The work done in the last month since summer school ended is astounding and I applaud the group effort that went into the progress we saw today. There is still much work to be done on both school and city capital projects, but I hope that this joint effort is the beginning of better communication between the City and schools. The kids deserve it.”

Mayor Martin and Principal Manka saw upgrades throughout the High School and spent time in both courtyards, which have recently been cleared of all trees, vines, and debris. Principal Manka also showed Mayor Martin the improvements to the main office, including a new formal conference room. During the tour, the Mayor stopped by a journalism class with the tour finishing in the back of the building by the parking lot where trees were removed from the sidewalk area where they were causing the sidewalk to buckle. The broken sidewalk has been recently replaced with new concrete.

Schools throughout the district receive upgrades every summer. The Mayor hopes to visit more schools in Stamford throughout the school year to see their improvements and meet students.
