Poet Visits EK Library

On April 17th, East Kingston celebrated National Poetry Month in a very special way by holding a Poetry and Pizza Night! For this special event, local poet and musician Bob Moore came and led the young poets through the process of composing a poem, based on an "inspiring" photograph that they had brought. In addition, families were treated to donated pizza and drinks while working on their poems in their pizza shaped books.  Later, young poets were invited to the microphone to read aloud and share the poems they had created, which were applauded by everyone.  In the end, every child left with a free book, and a collection of poems and resources to explore poetry on other days. Very special thanks to Bob Moore for lending his artistic talent to the families at East Kingston Elementary School!

Barnard School Celebrates Creative Spirit

On April 30, students at Barnard School welcomed family and friends to a celebration of the arts. From poetry to sculpture, from drumming circles to kinetic art, students "showed off" in a very positive way. New technology was highlighted and even the staff quilt display used fabric designed on the iPad. QR codes could be scanned with smart phones to access students’ audio book talks. The PTA and grade 8 manned the ice cream counter.  Pictured above is Grade 4 student, Benjamin Laverty.

Scouts Build Banks

Kingston Cub Scout Den 3 recently visited the Home Depot Store in Plaistow. The Scouts were treated to a tool demonstration and each had the opportunity to build their own wooden bank from scratch. The Scouts thank Home Depot for their generous offer of time, building materials, expertise, and, most importantly, patience. Scouts shown above from left, are: Christopher Gerard, Justin Varney, Jacob Thomas, Lewis Tyler, Finn Blomberg, Damien Easter, Connor Mallen, and Adam Ingersoll. The Den is lead by co-leaders Shannon Varney and Julie Blomberg.

Danville Daisies Enjoy Outing

The Danville Daisy Girl Scout Troop 11141 visited St. Julien Macaroons in Sandown, for a tour of their facility. Owner/baker James Price was kind enough to show the girls his kitchen and explained his baking process. Afterwards, the girls got to help out and pack up some delicious macaroons of their own to take home and enjoy!
