Geography Bee Winner: Eighth grader Conrad Hodgman knew that the Potomac River, which rises in the Allegheny Plateau, empties into Chesapeake Bay, enabling him to repeat as Epping Middle School’s Geography Bee Champ. He defeated runner-up Ryan Donovan.

Classroom bees were held over the past few weeks, generating the following list of finalists: Sharon Swanson, Jayson Brissette, Alexis Kailey, Anna Re, Evika Toth, Ryan Donovan, Tori Maestas, Cat Poulin, Konrad Hodgman, and Jordan Place.

Konrad will next take a written test which will determine the qualifiers for the State Geography Bee. The National Bee will be held in Washington, DC from May 19-21. Fifty thousand dollars in scholarship money is up for grabs at the National Bee.

  •  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!
