KP International Night - May 29

Attention Morning Advisory Teachers: Now that many of the students have received the permission slip for KP's International Night, you may start seeing them trickle in. Students were asked on the permission slip to turn them into their morning advisory teacher by Friday, May 22. If students turn them in to you, please turn them in to either Johannah Kosienki's or Marisa Tamayo's mailboxes. Or, you can turn them in to a folder on the counter in the main office labeled "International Night Permission Slips". Thanks and looking forward to seeing those slips come in!

KP QuEST Celebration

KP Staff: Please join us for the KP Quest Celebration on Wednesday, June 3rd from 6:00-7:30 as the West Hartford middle school Quest students share their in-depth Independent Type III Investigations. There will be exhibits, original readings, animations, documentaries, performances, and more!

We hope you can make it!

CCCSU Survey

Dear Participant,

My name is Elizabeth Chojnicki and I am a graduate student at Central Connecticut State University. Currently, I’m working on a research project focusing on teachers’ beliefs and thoughts about integrating arts into the curriculum. Because you are a teacher, I am inviting you to participate in my study by completing the attached survey. It should only take you between 5 and 10 minutes to complete.

You do not need to include your name, and the survey software function that allows us to prevent tracking participant IP addresses has been activated so you cannot be identified individually in any way as a result of your participation in this research. A copy of my project report will be submitted to my professor at Central Connecticut State University. If you decided to participate, please answer all the questions as thoroughly and honestly as possible. Please complete by May 15th.

I appreciate your help with my research project. The information that you give will provide me with important data regarding what teachers perceptions are regarding integrating arts into the curriculum, and implications on student learning.

If you have questions about your rights as a research participant of if you have a research related complaint please contact Dr. Jennifer Hedlund, Chair, CCSU Human Studies Council at (860) 832-2968, e-mail Or you may contact the HSC Administrator, CCSU Human Studies Council at (860) 832-2366, email
