Parents with a child that receives special services at Redding Elementary School and John Read Middle school need not to feel alone. The Special Education Parent Teacher Association (SEPTA), a committee under the Redding Elementary School PTA, has begun its second year.
Lisa Rivera, president of SEPTA, revived the program last year, she said.
As a mother of a student who has special needs, she said she felt alone and found comfort in talking to people in similar situations.

Mr. Shuford was selected for his tireless commitment to the Redding Scouts. The unique theme of the most recent campout and its Jedi Training Academy exemplifies his dedication to scouting. The Cub Scouts engaged their camping skills through light saber training, lessons on using "the force", and a Jedi Obstacle course.

Local rock band Pampalibros, made up of eighth and ninth graders from Redding and Westport, will be playing Saturday, Oct. 6, at Stepping Stones Museum in Norwalk.
The concert is to celebrate Nickelodeon's ninth annual World Wide Day of Play. Their set includes a lyrical adaptation of one of their new songs to fit the event. The show is at 4 p.m. and is free to the public.
Last year, after playing together for about two years, the four original members from Redding added a vocalist from Westport. Together about a year now, the five are beginning to write their own original material.
They have played at many venues, private parties and local festivals including The Norwalk Oyster Festival.
Pampalibros was featured on a WPKN radio show where they got to talk about their life as a band and all of the complications and joys it brings.
Currently, the band is working on concepts for new music and videos as well as booking gigs for the fall season. Check them out on Facebook and at Pampalibros.com.
