CAS Featured Student Artists: Killingly High Chamber Choir

Killingly High School Chamber Choir

Killingly High School
Dayville, CT

 

 

 

The Killingly High School Chamber Choir is an incredible group of students who dedicate extra time and heart to their passion; singing in choir! All of the students in the group have auditioned to be a part of their ensemble and the group participates in several performances around the Killingly community, including Christmas caroling, performing for Veterans, and traveling to competitions. Last year, the KHS Chamber Choir was the highest scoring group at the Music in the Parks competition in Hershey, PA and earned a superior rating from the judges. These students represent themselves and their community with pride and are a shining example of the power of music in their everyday lives. Great job KHS Chamber Choir!

About the Connecticut Association of Schools (CAS):

The Mission:  is to promote excellence in the education of all students by developing the skills and effectiveness of school leaders including administrators, staff and students.

The Purpose: is a private, non‐profit organization whose purpose is to improve the learning of every student in Connecticut by contributing to the improvement of elementary and secondary education. CAS, through its divisions including the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC), works to serve the collective interests and needs of Connecticut schools by providing leadership and professional development services to promote excellence in the education of all students.

Theory of Action: believe that the intellectual, physical and emotional growth and development of students will improve and be sustained through strengthening and aligning organizational systems closest to the instructional core within schools.   We also believe that athletics and other student activities enrich and support student engagement in the learning process.    We believe further that because improved student growth and learning are significantly influenced by adults, the primary responsibility of leadership is to improve the knowledge, skills, and dispositions of the adults in the system.  Finally, we believe that through effective support and accountability systems, school leaders can develop their instructional and organizational leadership capacities for the purpose of promoting a high degree of student learning.
