by University of Hartford Communications Intern Kimberly Bigelow
Comprised of ten middle school students and four 8th-grade student facilitators, Watkinson HIPP attended a workshop at the University of Hartford on Monday, February 23.
 
HIPP, or the Help Increase the Peace Program, describes itself as a project designed by the Middle Atlantic Region of the American Friends Service Committee that teaches nonviolent approaches to solving conflicts and social change.
 
“The intent of the program is to encourage and help build leadership skills around peaceful solutions to conflicts and building better communication skills,” said Diane Weinholtz, one of the Watkinson HIPP advisors, “Then the students go back to their advisory groups and help to lead activities and discussions around important issues.”

Three Students Qualify for Debate Nationals
3/2/2015
by University of Hartford Communications Intern Kimberly Bigelow

Meghan H. '15 and her debate partner, James W. '15, qualified for Nationals in parliamentary debate last weekend at the UPenn Liberty Bell Classic Tournament.
 
In parliamentary debate, or “parli”, participants are given a resolution and have fifteen minutes to prepare an eight-minute speech.
 
“My partner and I took fourth and that qualified us,” Henderson said, “We also did well at the Yale at the beginning of this year so those two points combined qualified us to be able to go to California.”
 
But Meghan and James aren’t the only ones going to Nationals. Spencer P. '15 of Watkinson will also take the trip to the tournament in California after winning with his partner at the Yale competition earlier this year.

by University of Hartford Communications Intern Kimberly Bigelow
 
On Friday, February 20, two Watkinson students performed a read-through of a short play at ‘An Evening of Smiles’, an event held at the Charter Oak Cultural Center in Hartford.
 
Sam Z. and Jared B. performed ‘Under Your Skin’, an original comedy written by March Schrader and directed by March’s wife and Watkinson’s Head of School, Teri Schrader.
 
“It was a very warm crowd,” Teri Schrader said “It was a really well-attended event that was a lot of fun and was for a good cause.”
 
‘An Evening of Smiles’ was held to benefit Rob Velasquez of East Hartford, who was in dire need of oral surgery, with extra proceeds going to the Hartford Gay and Lesbian Health Collective.

Academy Students to Showcase Final Projects
2/20/2015
by University of Hartford Communications Intern Kimberly Bigelow

Four Watkinson Academy students are preparing to present their year-long projects. With four entirely different topics, these students have been working since the beginning of the school year to accomplish these substantial pieces of work. Rob Werner, the Academy college counselor, said, “It’s about having the self confidence to persevere and complete something on their own and really see what they’ve done without anyone else’s help. I think that’s what this project really does. It show them that, ‘You can do this.’”
