Senior Projects
4/29/2016
A big shout out to Watkinson seniors Lily C., Andrew H. and Allie S. who successfully completed and presented Senior Projects this year! Senior Projects, also known as 12th-Grade Exhibitions, are a voluntary and rigorous independent project. They challenge seniors to actively engage with the school’s mission: giving students the power to shape their life and the world around them.  As such, seniors design and execute work that arises from their particular passions and that stretches them both personally and intellectually. Each Senior Project involves the generation of an essential question or statement, substantial research (both experiential and text-based), a multi-faceted approach, and a link to Watkinson’s mission, essential characteristics, and core values. Lily created a New International Student Orientation Manual. Alli researched ocean preservation initiatives and sought to raise awareness about dangers to our environment. Andrew researched a historic Jack the Ripper crime spree and designed an interactive forensics simulation for the course. Great job to these Seniors who truly went above and beyond!

6th Graders Lobby State Representatives for Water Rights!
4/27/2016
As part of their 6th-grade social studies curriculum focused around water, 15 members of the Watkinson class of 2022, went to the State Capitol yesterday to lobby for the passing of SB 422 in the State House of Representatives. This bill would remove tax-breaks and put in place restrictions on private companies, such as California-based Niagara Bottling. Niagara was approved to construct a water bottling plant in Bloomfield, CT – drawing on the public water sources used by Bloomfield, West Hartford and other surrounding towns under the Municipal District Commission. Concerns over strained water supplies and lack of transparency in these business negotiations have led local citizens to join forces and attempt to appeal Bloomfield’s decision on both the town and state level. One of these groups, the Bloomfield Citizens, has been particularly active in the lobbying of this bill and worked closely with the Watkinson students yesterday at the Capitol.
