3. Here is an update from the post-prom planning committee:
Hi everyone, it was discussed at last night's meeting that I would send a softcopy of the letter we give people when we ask for donations (attached)so that you can print some. The next After Prom Party Planning meeting will be Monday, Feb 20th in the High School Library (Room 704) at 6:30pmThanks, TheresaTHERESA DRURYAfter-Prom Booster Committee - 2012 Prom for the Sanborn Regional High School (603) 702-0011drury1234@myfairpoint.net theresa.drury@hanscom.af.mil

4. Join us TONIGHT at 7pm for our annual winter band, chorus, and jazz band concert. This will be a joint concert with Epping High School, and will be held in the SRHS auditorium at 7pm.

5. On Wednesday, February 8th, SRSD will hold a public hearing at 7pm in the auditorium on the budget/warrant for the upcoming vote in March.

6. The SRHS PTO is sponsoring a book drive and a book swap for Read Across America week March 12-15. They are looking for new or gently used books. Donations can be left in the main office for Mary Magnusson.

7. This past week, I presented the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) data to the School Board. If you are interested in viewing this data, please click on the link below. I have also attached the powerpoint that was given to the school board. My message to the Board was that this data is used in conjunction with other data (such as our culture survey, discipline statistics, etc) to help us identify what supports our students need and how we can help provide them. We also share this data with local police and town departments and outside agencies as these types of behaviors need to be addressed community-wide. We are planning to incorporate some of the data in this most recent survey into the action plan that we are developing through our study of our climate and culture. We hope to be able to return to the school Board to present that work later this Spring.
The YRBS survey is available on our homepage or by clicking on this link:

8. The Northeast Organic Farmers Association of New Hampshire (NOFA-NH) invites the community of Sanborn Regional High School to come to their Tenth Annual Winter Conference. To thank the Sanborn community for being the host school for 2012, NOFA-NH is offering a special discounted rate to members of the SRHS and Fremont, Newton, and Kingston, NH communities. Information about the conference and the full schedule can be found at http://www.nofanhwc.org/. The early bird discount for the NOFA-NH Tenth Annual Winter Conference registration ends on 3 February, 2012. Combined with the special discount NOFA-NH is offering to the SRHS community in gratitude for being our gracious hosts, that's nearly 75% off the adult registration fee. Registration can be done on-line at www.regonline.com/nofanh2012WC. Students, family and faculty/staff of Sanborn should select the Sanborn RHS Community registration category. Then they will be asked for a discount code, which is SRHS13. Registration before 3 February will be $18.95 per person; after 3 February will be $33.95. All attendees are encouraged to participate in the Pot Luck Lunch, either by bringing a dish to share or buying a plate - $15 per adult, $7.50 per child under 13. We're looking forward to seeing you at the conference!
Have a great week everyone!
