JSRHS Spanish Honor Society Visits Henniker Community School

John Stark Regional High School's Spanish Honor Society members went to the Henniker Community School in December to make presentations to the 8th grade students in Mrs. Caplan’s Spanish 1 class. This outreach is an important piece of community service for Spanish Honor Society members which also meets upper level Spanish competencies. John Stark Spanish Honor Society is co-advised by Stephanie Harpring and Shannon Dunn.

JSRHS "We the People" Advance to State Championship

The John Stark We The People Team has advanced to the State Championship on January 9th, following a successful competition at the Legislative Office Building in Concord in December.  We The People: The Citizen and the Constitution is an innovative program that teaches students about civics, American constitutional democracy and the relevance of the Bill of Rights.  In addition to advancing, the John Stark team also won the Unit Three Award (there are six units in each competition). The Unit Three question was:  How Has the Constitution Been Changed to Further the Ideals Contained in the Declaration of Independence?  The Unit Three team members who answered that question were Hazel Johnstone, Ethan Vezina and Chloe Strienburger.  The award was presented to the team by Howard Zeibel who started the New Hampshire program 28 years ago and has been a judge at the competition every year since. The NH Bar Association makes the We the People program available to schools in New Hampshire through its Law Related Education program.

2014 Toy Drive

2014 Toy Drive Henniker and Weare

The Art Society (with the help of Peer Leaders and ADL) will be running our 5th Annual Toy Drive this year from Monday, December 1st through Friday, December 12th. Both the Henniker and Weare Food pantries were in awe of how generous the John Stark community was last year and we are hoping to make this Toy Drive bigger and better this year!

This Toy Drive can also be a "teachable" moment since it hits our Social and (especially) our Civic competencies.  Although NH has long touted its low poverty rate, as of late there are more families than ever living in poverty.

Thank you for supporting this Toy Drive.  Students still talk about witnessing the generosity of teachers and classmates last year, many of whom pooled money within classes to buy nicer gifts for high school aged children who are so often overlooked. Thank you!
