New Canaan Teens to Watch King School

Cam Raker '19: "I give back by... Spending one period a day tutoring at my school's Math Help Center. I try to help other students understand the "why" of the problem, not just how to do it. We boil down the concepts so we can piece the problem together. I also love volunteering at the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk. I'm interested in biology and enjoy operating the Touch Tank because the kids get so excited seeing the animals." Read Cam's full Q&A here,

The 2017 Moffly Teens to watch, announced several winners from King School including senior, Luke Koppenheffer of New Canaan, CT. Luke play Trumpet in the King Jazz Band. He graduated with a certificate of distinction while balancing his love for jazz. "The flexibility has provided me the opportunity to push myself," said Luke Koppenheffer '18, who was part of both the studio band and the jazz combo. The combo was formalized in 2017 by a small group of students looking to pursue a more rigorous music education. "I realized how advanced I was when I made the third chair for jazz year then second chair jazz this year in the Connecticut Music Educators Association competition. The process of auditioning for something so selective and being accepted was a realization of how all my practice playing at public events and now in the combo helped me with my jazz improvisation and live performance skills, both of which were crucial to those auditions."
