Dear Parents, Students, and Friends of Sanborn Regional High School. Welcome back from vacation! We are now on the fast track to the end of the year, and May is jam-packed with lots of events as we start to close out the 2011-2012 school year. Here are your important announcements for the week: 1. Did you know we now have our very own PTO? Please consider joining. The membership form is attached. Speaking of the PTO.... 
OUR new PTO will be holding its first major fundraiser on the evening of Friday May 18. It will be a comedy show at Sawyers. Tickets will be on sale after vacation for $20 each. Your ticket includes free appetizers, access to lots of raffle prize options, and a cash bar. Two Vegas comedians will perform. This will be a GREAT night out. Save the date!

Meanwhile, to make this event a success, the PTO needs donations of items or gift certificates for the raffles. Please see the message below from the PTO (or the attached letter) for information on how YOU can help support …

Information about the Post Prom Party 2012

The After-Prom Party will be held at the High School from Midnight until
5:00am. There is no cost to the student or the school for anything for the
After-Prom Party.

The After-Prom Party will be Beach Theme, casual dress. We will have a rack
for the kids to hang their tux and gowns (although we cannot take
responsibility for the outfits as we do not have the adult man-power to have
a 'coat-room'). The kids can bring a bag w/ change of clothes with them to
school, bags can be dropped off at the front office (their bags will be
searched at that time to ensure safety at After-Prom Party). Ensure bag is
clearly marked with the student's name.

It is a substance-free, adult supervised event. We will have a bonfire at
Midnight (with Kingston Fire Dept at fireside), we will serve donated pizza
& Mini-Moe's sandwiches, soda/water.

Then at 1:00 am they will enter the High School, once they enter high school
all bags are searched by Kingston Police Dept /School Board Member …

Mr. Stack's Comments To the School Community Regarding the Magna Award

The following address was made to the staff and students of Sanborn Regional High School yesterday:





As your building principal, it is not often that I have the opportunity to address all of you at once. Today, I am honored to share some very exciting news with all of you. Recognizing Dr. Blake’s vision for our school district to achieve the status of “top ten percent”, I am proud to say that today, Sanborn Regional High School has taken a major step forward in realizing that vision.

You might be wondering to yourself, what is this big news? What could we possibly be doing at Sanborn that is so successful? Having worked in this school for the last six years but still as an outsider myself to the communities of Kingston, Newton, and Fremont, I must admit, I have often wondered why students and parents from Sanborn have long felt a sense of mediocrity and a lack of pride for their school. Yes, I get it, we are not as big as Exeter. We are not as loud as Timberlane. We are not as prestigio…

SRHS Update: Week of April 9

1. Did you know we now have our very own PTO? Please consider joining. The membership form is attached.

2. The federal No Child Left Behind Act requires that all schools are measured annually on their growth towards having all students demonstrate proficiency in reading and mathematics. Each year, the State of New Hampshire releases a list of schools that have made adequate yearly progress (AYP) towards this goal. I have attached a letter that explains the AYP status of SRHS for this year. In short, we made AYP in reading but not mathematics. We will continue to address our mathematics needs and will be developing an action plan to submit to the State this fall. The letter explains this in more detail.
