Sanborn Connection

KINGSTON - Greetings from the Sanborn Regional School District. As I write this article, it is a balmy 5 degrees outside. Thankfully, energy savings projects and upgrades throughout the district are keeping our students and staff warm in each of our buildings. Projects over the last few years have enabled us to reduce our fuel consumption even during these cold spells.

Our schools continue to bustle with activity. Students are achieving at higher levels now than ever before. Our teachers are continuing to engage students and present unique learning opportunities. Our model of Supervision and Evaluation assists teachers in improving their craft and provides adequate professional development opportunities to excel. Our leadership team sets high expectations for all students and staff and the results are positive.

The Sanborn Regional School District is being recognized as a leader in the State with regard to competency/standards based grading. We continue to refine and develop this model that was adopted several years ago. Visitors to our schools frequently ask, “how did you do this?” Our response is simple: Time and dedication to the task. Knowing that the State was moving in this direction, the Sanborn Regional School District positioned itself to take the lead as competencies and standards entered our conversations. Today, our teachers and administrators are asked to present at State and National conferences on our journey to becoming a competency based school system. The Sanborn community should be proud of the work we are doing to enhance the education of our students.

Sanborn Regional High School continues to lead the way in innovative practices that enhance the experience of our students. The Freshman Learning Community and the Sophomore Experience are providing our students with skills necessary to compete in a global society. We have recently introduced a Career Pathways program that enables students to explore fields of interest more in-depth and complete a capstone project in their selected field. Students are actively engaging in internship experiences and extended learning opportunities in the community. At the elementary and middle school levels, our students have re-teach and enrich opportunities to ensure solid foundational skills and enrichment for advanced students. Middle school students are able to earn high school credit in Algebra and world language. High School students are able to earn college credit for some of our course offerings.

Exciting things are happening in the schools of the Sanborn Regional School District. I thank you for your continued support as we strive to provide our students with a solid educational experience. If you have any questions regarding information presented, please contact me at bblake@sau17.org.

    Recently, some 4th and 5th grade students at Swasey Central School in Brentwood, participated in a Pi Day celebration. This day focused on mathematical pi, which included activities regarding circles, diameters and circumferences. In addition, students competed in a "Pi Digit Challenge." They worked to memorize as many digits past the decimal as they could. Pictured are 4th grader Savannah Stucki (114 digits), 5th grader Haley Nickola (105 digits), and 4th grader Rylee Lyles (162 digits).
