Superintendent's Report

EXETER —Exeter Area Special Olympics at Exeter High School (EHS) continue to play a vital role in the overall education of students. Under the superb and dedicated leadership of veteran teacher and coach, Jim Tufts, teams this year competed at the NH State Games with 46 athletes and 127 peer coaches. During the Opening Ceremony, it was announced that the Exeter team was the recipient of the Ray Kroc Spirit Award for its outstanding sportsmanship and for the ways in which students actively and enthusiastically participated in this entire program.

As the school year began to wind down, the Newfields Elementary School (NES) gardens grew and harvested string beans that were part of the lunch menu as a community salad. The students were very proud of this project and took great care of their garden which is located immediately adjacent to the school. After the harvest, students planted pumpkin seeds that will grow throughout the summer. In the fall, the pumpkins will be decorated and sold. The proceeds will be donated to the 68 Hours of Hunger project that will help feed children over the weekend.

Using a variety of interdisciplinary techniques, Cooperative Middle School (CMS) seventh grader, Amelie Signorel, was recently selected as an “Artist of the Week” by Artsonia because of her work on The Holocaust. Combining Language Arts, Social Studies, and Art, Amelie read the poem, “The Last Butterfly,” and connected that with the Houston Holocaust Museum’s Butterfly Project that honors the 1.5 million children who perished during the Holocaust. Then she created a picture of a butterfly that captured the attention of Artsonia which awarded her a plaque for her outstanding creativity and work. Artsonia is known as “the world’s largest kids’ art museum” and may be accessed at www.artsonia.com.

Field Day recently at Kensington Elementary School (KES) once again brought together students, staff, parents, and community members to celebrate the true spirit of engaging each other in a wide variety of activities that stimulate the mind and the body. Designed to be a celebration of the community which is Kensington Elementary School, children participated in a variety of team games that were intended to challenge and reward them for their various achievements and successes.
