Roger Reeser’s Retirement
As you may know, Roger Reeser, our long time custodian, retired at the end of March. Roger worked for the Exeter School District for some 36 years with most of that time having been spent here at Lincoln Street School. Roger developed a wonderful rapport with both students and staff alike and will be greatly missed. We wish him all the best with his retirement!
The Grade 4 Drama Club did an excellent job recently with their production of “Annie Kids”. The outstanding cast as well as the three directors, Mr. Hanlon, Mrs. Newman, and Mrs. Robertson are to be highly commended for their exemplary work on this exceptional play. Congratulations to all!

Parent Nutrition Letter
September 26, 2013
As we begin the new school year we want to remind you that the Exeter School District has a “Wellness, Nutrition and Physical Activity Policy” that guides what types of foods
may be offered to students throughout the school day. The policy is located on the
SAU-16 website. This policy is particularly applicable to school parties and celebrations that occur including both whole class events and individual student birthdays. Exeter’s elementary schools want to continue to support the tradition of recognizing these various special days while at the same time promoting healthy snack ideas and non-food ways to celebrate. We want to share some related suggestions below:
Non-Food Ways to Celebrate
. Donate a book to the school library or classroom in honor of the child’s birthday
. Donate games to the classroom to be used during in-door recess
. Donate playground/physical activity equipment- jump ropes, balls, etc.
. Organize an active game(s) that the class can play
. Engage students in a special art project (Teachers may provide suggestions)
Healthy Snack Ideas
. Small bottles or cartons of flavored milk, 100% juice, smoothies and water
. Fresh fruit tray-whole, wedges, slices.
. Fresh vegetable tray (baby carrots, grape tomatoes, celery sticks, cucumber spears,
red and green pepper strips, cauliflower and broccoli florets) with reduced fat ranch or
. String cheese, cheese cubes or slices with whole grain crackers
. Low fat pudding cups, low fat yogurt squeeze packs or cups
. Pretzels, low fat popcorn
Please also note that several classrooms have food restrictions due to specific
health-related or severe allergy issues. A separate letter from the school nurse will be provided to parents in these classrooms. All food and drink items to be sent into these classrooms for celebrations must be approved by the school nurse 48 hours prior to their arrival at school.
Finally, please know that your support of our efforts to promote healthy nutritional habits for the students in our elementary schools is very much appreciated.
