Exeter School District News

EXETER - Community members and school staffs continue to recognize and celebrate the dedication of local individuals by nominating them for a Champion for Children award. This award is given to those individuals who have distinguished themselves by demonstrating significant involvement in programs and/or services that directly benefit the students and families of School Administrative Unit 16.

The Exeter School District recently presented this award to Mrs. Sally Holloman who has been a kindergarten classroom volunteer at Main Street School (MSS) for the past 15 years. She is a retired educator who is very active in the Riverwoods community, serving on its Education Committee and assisting with its United Day of Caring and Meals on Wheels program. On any given Monday, Mrs. Holloman visits MSS and sits on the kindergarten classroom floor to read with children. At the appropriate time, she also patiently listens when a child is ready to read to her. Each December, “Mrs. H” helps to arrange a visit of the kindergarten children from MSS to Riverwoods where they sing and spread holiday cheer to the residents. Additionally, she also volunteers for the annual PTO Fun Run in Exeter and helps by registering and cheering on the runners, passing out water, and doing whatever she can to help the program run smoothly. Her efforts celebrate children and make her a real gift to the MSS community.

School Board Seats - Terms of office for some current school board members expire in March 2014. Now is the time for interested citizens to consider serving in these capacities. Board Members whose terms, three (3) years unless otherwise noted, expire include Charles Gargaly and Amy Mitchell in Brentwood; Korrine Bork in East Kingston; Tracy Jeffers in Exeter; Gary Bonitatibus in Kensington; Kirsten Lord in Newfields; Bob O’Sullivan and Eric von der Linden in Stratham; and Kate Segal (Exeter), Dave Miller (East Kingston), Kate Clark (Kensington – 2 year term), and Mark Portu (Stratham) for the Coop. Of the thirty-three total School Board seats in SAU 16, these twelve positions will be available for (re)election. Now is the time for any interested individual to gather information about the duties and responsibilities associated with serving as a School Board member. This is a wonderful opportunity for community service!

  •  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!
