EPPING — Epping Middle School (EMS) is pleased to announce the following activities and programs.

Sixth Graders Clean Up Wallis Sands: On April 16, in conjunction with the Blue Green Society for Marine Conservation of Portsmouth, 84 sixth grade students and 11 chaperones collected 59 pounds of trash from the beaches at Wallis Sands. This project, under the supervision of Language Arts Teacher Mandy Beidleman, is aligned with the sixth grade project theme of Global Awareness and Environmental issues.

Prior to the trip, students listened to a guest speaker from the Society on April 11. She explained what the organization does, including its work with the protection of whales. The dangers of trash to marine life were outlined with examples such as how birds will eat plastic, which they cannot digest. They eventually die of starvation as their stomachs seem full to them and they stop eating. Instructions were also given in the event that students come across injured animals. Students were also informed of how long it actually takes for different types of trash to break down. Congratulations to the Yale Team for doing their part to help our environment!

Bullying Presentations to Be Held: Malcolm Smith, PhD., Family Life and Family Policy Specialist, and Rick Alleva, EdD, Youth and Family Field Specialist, from the UNH Cooperative Extension, will hold several presentations on understanding bullying. On May 2 grades 5-8 attended the presentation and the faculty attended after school. On May 16 grades 9-12 will attend. The parent presentation will be held from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the EHS gym on May 16. Topics for students will include: “How students can make a difference,” and “Get involved; be an upstander.” Parent information will cover: “Bullying: What Is It? Where/How Dies It Occur?; 10 Myths about Bullying and Facts; Characteristics of Bullying and Cyber Bullying; Roles/Needs of Bullies, Victims and Bystanders; What Parents Can Do - with their child, with other parents and schools/youth programs.

  •  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!
