Voice Library at KES


One memory that the students and teachers were apt to recall was about a local man, Mr. Lawler, father of KES teacher, Mrs. Lawler. The entire class jumped into hurried whispers for their classmate to share the story he’d encountered in his interview. Mrs. Lawler’s father was on the school board as well as a mason. He helped build an addition to the school, and in doing so placed one of his daughter’s tennis shoe into the building. The students also liked to learn that before KES was as large of an establishment as it is today, students were able to pick and choose when they went to class.

Ms. Knightly and Mrs. Roffman were also interviewed during this project, both of whom will be retiring this year. The on-going outcome is truly a testament to KES, their staff, students and their parents.

  •  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!
