New Principal at EMS

EPPING —The Epping School District is pleased to announce that Brian Ernest has accepted the position of Epping Middle School Principal beginning July 1, 2014.

Mr. Ernest has over twenty years of experience as a schoolteacher, coach, and administrator. For twelve of those years he has served as a school administrator in middle and elementary schools. Mr. Ernest is pursuing a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Educational Leadership. He holds a Master of Education Degree in Educational Leadership and Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Education from Plymouth State University.

Mr. Ernest brings strong skills in community building. He believes in student-centered education grounded in research and driven by data. He is also a full supporter of technology integration to help students prepare for future challenges. Mr. Ernest looks forward to meeting with students, parents, and community members to talk about Epping Middle School and the Epping Community. Plans will be put in place to begin this process and the transition for the new school year.

The principal search was an inclusive and intensive process involving students, parents, community members, school staff, school and district administration, and school board members. The process involved three rounds of interviews with the district leadership team, school/community committee, and school board. The school district extends our appreciation to everyone who participated in this process sharing their time and providing valuable feedback.

This is a wonderful outcome for both Mr. Ernest and the Epping Middle School and Community. The district knows that you will join us in welcoming Brian and working with him to focus on the potential of every student and engage each to be passionate, confident learners who demonstrate competence and have strength of character to reach their highest aspirations and thoughtfully contribute to a diverse and changing world.

  •  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!
