Richard J. Keays
Exeter town and school voting and elections will be held on Tuesday, March 11th. The polls are open between 7am and 8pm with voting taking place at the Talbot Gym at the Tuck Learning Campus. Exeter residents will be voting on the 2014-15 school budget, a three year teacher contract and other import school issues. One school board member will be elected as well. Please take time to cast your vote on March 11th!
As you may know, March is “Music in Our Schools Month.” As we begin the month, I want to recognize and applaud the outstanding Music Program we have at Lincoln Street School. Under the superb direction of General Music teacher, Mrs. Noseworthy, our students have the wonderful experience each week of learning basic Music objectives as well as to simply enjoy singing with their classmates. Mrs. Noseworthy also directs our Grade 5 chorus, which meets on a weekly basis to prepare for two major concerts each year. During March, Mrs. Noseworthy has arranged for five grade level concerts that allow all of our students the opportunity to perform a variety of musical compositions. The culminating event will feature our grade five students as they participate in the “World’s Largest Concert” on Thursday evening, March 13th. I want to highly commend Mrs. Noseworthy for her extraordinary work each day and particularly for her tremendous efforts during the month of March.
Additionally, I want to applaud the excellent work of Mrs. Perriccio, our Instrumental Music teacher. Mrs. Perriccio teaches a wide variety of musical instruments to our fourth and fifth grade students. She also directs our Grade 5 Band which performs two major concerts each year. Starting in January of each year, Mrs. Perriccio directs the Beginning Band consisting of first year instrumental students. The Beginning Band performs its’ first concert each June. Mrs. Perriccio is to be highly commended for her outstanding commitment to our Instrumental Program throughout the year.
Finally, let me positively recognize the fine work of our String Music teacher, Laura Cassinari.
Lincoln Street School is affiliated with the Seacoast Academy of Music which offers a variety of string instrument lessons each week for a nominal fee. We feel very fortunate to be able to extend our musical offerings to the string family through this special program. A big thank you to Laura Cassinari for her superb efforts each week teaching string lessons to our fourth and fifth grade students.
The local “68 Hours of Hunger Program” extends their sincere gratitude to our students, parents, and staff for recently collecting nearly 25 boxes of food items to support this program.
