Second graders in Melissa Boutote’s class at Carrington School in Waterbury enjoyed a unique field trip yesterday morning when they traveled to Carvel on Watertown Avenue to meet up with Mayor Neil O’Leary, who treated all the students to an ice cream cone. The mayor developed a special bond with the class after last November’s election. The students had been studying government in social studies and produced a guide book on how to be a good mayor. After completion they presented it to Mayor O’Leary, who said he has it in his office at City Hall, and refers to it when making all his tough decisions. Photograph by John Murray
