Congrats to Megan Johnson!

The Connecticut School Counselor Association (CSCA) has selected Megan Johnson as School Counselor of the Year for 2015!

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!

We hope you can make it!
