EXETER - Serving on a school board today is no easy task. The commitment of time and energy is often more significant than one imagines at first. SAU 16 has been fortunate over the years to have capable and dedicated individuals devote some of their community service efforts to help the students, families, and staff members of their respective communities. As a result of the March 2013, Liz Faria (Brentwood – served 3 years on the Coop Board and 4 years on the Brentwood Board) will not be re-joining the Exeter Region Cooperative School Board. Her seven years of service are gratefully appreciated.

East Kingston Elementary School (EKES) has been selected as a Finalist in the 2013 competition for NH Elementary School of the Year by the EDies Selection Committee. In February, a team of students, teachers, parents and school board members traveled to Concord to make a presentation about EKES. As a result, the school was notified recently that it has progressed to the third and final stage of the process. The winner will be announced in April.

Kensington Elementary School (KES) fifth grade teacher, Amy Steinberg, has been selected as one of ten national finalists for the Great American Teach-Off, a national competition co-sponsored by the University of Phoenix and GOOD magazine. It is a voter-based contest that carries a $10,000 classroom prize for the winner. The winner will be announced in April.

Exeter High School (EHS) sophomore Zach Morris captured first place for the second consecutive year in the recent Poetry Out Loud contest at the school. He moves on to compete at the Eastern Regional Semi-Finals at the University of New Hampshire.

EHS junior Alex Rose recently submitted an essay on the topic of how the US Constitution is still relevant in today’s world. His essay has been chosen to be posted on the Constitutionally Speaking website, along with being submitted to several newspapers by that organization.

  •  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!
