Exeter School District News

EXETER - East Kingston Elementary School (EKES) was recently selected as the 2013 Elementary School of Excellence by the NH “EDies” Committee. For each of the past twenty years, this outstanding honor has been bestowed on one elementary school, one middle school, and one high school in the state. Earlier this year, Principal Jim Eaves decided to have the school apply for this honor because of his awareness that EKES combines a dedicated staff with interested students who create an exciting learning environment. Enhanced by a solid partnership with the Department of Education at the University of New Hampshire that annually provides a solid cadre of student interns, EKES is able to offer some unique opportunities for students that lead to a small teacher-student ratio. Many of the strengths of EKES were centered on the excellent learning conditions and opportunities for students identified by the EDies Visiting Committee. The community’s strong support for the school was also noted.

Summer Institute - Designed to provide a wide range of learning opportunities for students entering grades nine through twelve, Exeter High School (EHS) will host its first Summer Institute in 2013. Twenty-seven different courses, ranging from Broadcast Journalism to Standardized Test Preparation and from an Introduction to Marine Biology to an Introduction to Elementary Teaching, will run for two-week sessions from June 24th to August 2nd. Courses will carry two Exeter High School credits (.5 Carnegie unit) and will have 10-18 students per class. All courses will have 40 hours of class time and will be graded on a pass/fail basis. Each course costs $250 plus additional fees for books or travel, as appropriate. Exeter High School students had the opportunity for priority registration prior to May 17, 2013. Open enrollment for any student is now available. More information is available online at: http://savvy.sau16.org/ehs/SummerInstitute.cfm

  •  Successful Conservation Collaboration

    On June 17, the sophomore class of Sanborn Regional High School made a field trip to the Old Frye Town Forest, one of Kingston's five town forests, to assist the Kingston Conservation Commission in the removal of invasive plants from the area near the trailhead, notably, an extensive and aggressive patch of Japanese knotweed. This project was the culmination of the school's third year of intra-curricular collaboration with the Commission to address local environmental issues, and to make conservation an area of study and research. Congratulations from the Commission to the teachers and students for a job well done!
