Epping Middle School News

EPPING — October is National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month. On October 7, Epping Middle School students, faculty, and staff joined thousands of others all over the world by wearing blue shirts to “Stomp Out Bullying”. Over 80% of the student body participated. The winning Morning Meeting Groups from each grade had one hundred percent participation and will be treated to a breakfast later in the month. The sixth grade winning team was Mr. Bouchard’s group; the seventh was Mrs. Flintosh’s group; and the eighth grade was Mrs. Booth’s team.

Students were also involved in coming up with a slogan for Epping Middle School’s anti-bullying program. A bulletin board designed by Emily Jackson of Mr. Christie’s Morning Meeting features a tree with leaves representing each student at EMS. The theme is “Don’t Leaf Me Out!” The individual logo contest continues; students are encouraged to submit their entries.

Trick or Treat for UNICEF - Under the direction of eighth grade Team Leader and Language Arts teacher, Pat Weisberg, students and members of the National Junior Honor Society will be collecting money for UNICEF during the month of October. Students are encouraged to carry their UNICEF boxes with them while Trick or Treating and collect change from those they visit.

The original “Kids Helping Kids”, the United Nations Children’s Fund provides relief to children in need all over the world. Twenty-five cents can give ten kids clean drinking water for a day, as an example. Please support our students as they try to help others in need.

Magazine Sales Subscriptions - Epping Middle School’s only school-wide fundraiser, the Magazine Sales Drive, was held the last week of September and the first week of October. This year’s sales were down a bit, but a strong finish pushed total sales to $4,062.75. EMS will retain 40% of all profits. The money is used to offset the cost of field trips and other school activities.

  •  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!
