(Continued)

Lauren Gagnon, the author of Exeter ABC, is donating a copy of her book to every kindergarten student at Main Street School (MSS) as part of Exeter’s 375th anniversary celebration. Ms. Gagnon is also doing this to honor MSS kindergarten teacher, Susan Drinker, for inspiring her to write this book.

For the fourth consecutive year the parents of new kindergarten students at Kensington Elementary School (KES) were treated at the end of August to a “Boo Hoo Breakfast” that is sponsored by the parents of first graders. After dropping off their children to the care of the kindergarten teachers and staff, these new parents had a wonderful opportunity to talk with other KES parents and the principal.

In preparing for another year of community service initiatives at the Cooperative Middle School CMS), students will soon be treated to an outstanding presentation from former National Football League player and military service veteran Joe Tate. He will challenge the students to work hard and value the importance of community service in a wide variety of ways.

Fourth grade students at Swasey Central School (SCS) recently participated in “STEM Camp” where they were exposed to an exciting variety of conversations and hands-on learning about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Already the teachers and students are looking forward to a positive energy both in and out of the classroom. Students have also been encouraged to learn more about the many opportunities available to them through “Khan Academy” which can be easily accessed through the Internet. It is a key resource for learning about some new and exciting information.

  •  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!
