Exeter School District News

(Continued)

Four fifth grade students (Maddie Gilmartin, Ashley Arcidi, Ashlyn Rice, and Julianna Perrella) from East Kingston Elementary School (EKES) recently formed the EKES Soles4Souls Team so that they could do something that would make a difference in the world. Soles4Souls is a shoe charity that refurbishes gently used shoes and then donates them where needed in the United States and around the world. The team collected a wide variety of shoes during February to support their efforts to help others and to expand their community service involvement.

Because the current GED (Graduate Equivalency Diploma) program ends in December 2013, the Exeter Adult Education Director, Leslie Haslam, and her staff have embarked on an aggressive campaign to reach out to the hundreds of area residents who had begun the GED over the past ten years, but never completed the battery of tests required by the program. This has included increased media and social networking coverage; at least three rounds of letters to past participants; telephone contacts; and word of mouth exchanges. The Adult Education staff is asking community members to “spread the word” that any NH resident who is 18 years of age or older and who has not earned a high school diploma may still take the current GED test in 2013. Beginning in January 2014, a totally new high school equivalency test will be unveiled. Contact with the Adult Education office may be made by calling 775-8457 or by accessing information through the SAU 16 website at http://adulted.sau16.org.

  •  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!
