Hallway Reminders

  • Please remember to be in the hallways during transitions starting in the morning to support students' appropriate choices and serve as a deterrent for erroneous choices
  • Please remind students in MA and during classes to be respectful in the hallways of one another and the adults by walking with purpose but not walking over people, especially those with injuries. Of course it is always helpful to remind 6th and 7th graders to refrain from running.

Passing of the Rocks

Carolyn Andrews is passing the Community Engagement Rock to Eina Rieger. Eina’s donation of her handcrafted pottery to the KP Paint Fundraiser was just one example of

her generosity to our Community. In her classroom, along with her efforts in coordinating the KP Art Show and the Town Wide Art Show, Eina motivates students and nurtures their desire to learn and express themselves in a healthy supportive environment. Her community engagement extends beyond the school district, as she is an active member of the WeHa Arts Emporium and the West Hartford Art League. We are extremely fortunate to have such a talented and passionate individual to promote art appreciation to our friends and neighbors! Thank you, Eina for all you do!!

Lynn Brown and the cafeteria staff are passing the Wellness Rock to Mike Birnbaum We want to thank you for working with our cafeteria helpers. You have a heart of gold and are amazing with our students. Thank you for all that you do!

Danelia Brown is passing the Student Success Rock on to Alana Cosgrove ,Maria Marchese, Deb Newhouse and Jessica Rucci-Koch. I feel they play an important role in the success of many children. They take the time to make individualize plans of success for each child that they have. Some of those success's have resulted in the Coffee house that many of us have enjoyed on Monday and Thursday Mornings. They all have created a safe nurturing environment that enables each child to learn and succeed at their own maximum potential.
