Welcome new staff to our KP Community

My name is Marianne Murawski and I'm a retired detective from New York City. My police career included the Special Victim's Unit and community policing in the New York City Police Department. I was also a substitute middle school teacher. I am the proud mom of two daughters who are both in college. I'm an avid athlete and enjoy taking boot camp and Zumba classes. I'm also a huge UCONN Huskies women's basketball fan. I look forward to working with the staff here at KP!

Unified Theater News

We are currently looking for leaders for Unified Theater. Unified Theater is a unique experience for students to work with people of all ability to cooperatively put on a student-led production. There is no audition or exclusion, and everyone is a valuable part of the process. We need strong leaders to step up and be willing to direct, choreograph, produce, and make sure that all students are included. This is a fun experience that will help develop leadership skills and a greater understanding of the needs of people of varying abilities. Rehearsals will be on Thursdays after school until 5:00pm with a leaders meeting until 5:30pm. They will start in early October and run through mid December. The deadline for students to apply is September 25th. Please visit http://www.unifiedtheater.org/ for more information on this program, and contact Jared Boulet (Jared_boulet@whps.org) or Heather Pelkey (Heather_Pelkey@whps.org) for more information.
