Sandwich Central School

Dear SCS Families:

“It is not how you start the race or where you are during the race,
it is how you cross the finish line that matters.”
Robert D. Hales
The above quote has been ringing in my head as we cruise to the finish line of another year at Sandwich Central School. In addition to wrapping up our data collection cycle, students and teachers are celebrating their successes and relationships with a variety of experiential learning opportunities.
In May, the Upper Multiage students and faculty traveled by school bus to Concord, NH. While there, they culminated their studies of New Hampshire with a tour of the State House and New Hampshire Fish and Game. The State House staff provided our students with a historical tour of the building, including a stop at Governor Sununu’s Office. Next, we traveled across the Merrimack to the New Hampshire Fish and Game headquarters on Hazen Drive. The children enjoyed an interactive exhibit and a visit with officers from the reality TV show Northwoods Law. All in all it was a great day and Mrs. Hoag and Mrs. Read should be commended on their planning and preparation.
As described in Mr. Bennett’s report, the sixth graders completed their three day/two night adventure at Camp Merrowvista. I was fortunate to spend the entire week with the sixth graders and was impressed by their outgoing/positive attitudes. This trip remains a rite of passage for the Inter-Lakes sixth graders and is worth every ounce of the resources we put towards it.

Looking ahead, the Upper Multiage enjoyed a trip to the historic Belknap Mill and experienced a school day at the Lower Corner Schoolhouse. The Middle Multiage will head to Lost River this week, and the Primary Multiage is putting the finishing touches on their class play. The Sandwich Central School Community celebrated the end of the year with our traditional family BBQ.
The end of the year is always bitter sweet. As things wind down, it is hard not to reflect on all of the positive experiences we have shared during the 180 day school year and be a little sad. I am incredibly proud of the students and faculty of Sandwich Central School and am hopeful that everyone will finish with a sense of accomplishment and excitement for the next chapter. The support we receive from the community and School Board is second to none, and is appreciated by our teachers and administrative team. Thank you!
