The National Teacher of the Year Program is a project of the Council of Chief State School Officers in partnership with the Voya Foundation and People to People Ambassador Programs.

In New Hampshire, Hannaford Supermarkets is proud to partner with the Department of Education to sponsor the New Hampshire Teacher of the Year program.

KMS Geography

After concluding our geography unit, Team 3 eighth grade students have spent the last few days creating a timeline to review the major events of United States history that they covered as 7th graders. The timeline is almost 15 feet long, and includes over twenty important events from 1475 to 1850. Creating the timeline was a class effort that included collaboration, critical thinking, and also mathematics skills. Shown in this picture are Kyle Drouin, Miles Woodbury, and Chris Desmarais, who all contributed to the block 6 timeline.

Talking To Children About Tragedies and Other News Events

​After any disaster, parents and other adults struggle with what they should say and share with children and what not to sa
y or share with them.

Where to Start – All Ages

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) encourages parents, teachers, child care providers, and others who work closely with children to filter information about the crisis and present it in a way that their child can accommodate, adjust to, and cope with.

No matter what age or developmental stage the child is, parents can start by asking a child what they’ve already heard. Most children will have heard something, no matter how old they are. After you ask them what they’ve heard, ask what questions they have. Older children, teens, and young adults might ask more questions and may request and benefit more from additional information. But no matter what age the child is, it’s best to keep the dialogue straightforward and direct. More Information AAP


Ty Sells speaking event at KMS

posted Dec 1, 2015, 9:29 AM by Linda Burns

The Power of Acceptance is a fun, youth-oriented presentation that challenges young people to make positive choices in regard to alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.  The presentation is focused on the positive side of being drug-free as opposed to the negative consequences of choosing to use.  It also challenges students to examine the way they treat others who are “different” from them.  Along with making the audience laugh as they learn, this presentation makes five core points:  It is perfectly acceptable to make the choice to stay or become drug free; The way we treat others can influence the choices that they make; Cool always changes; Knowledge isn’t power, it’s potential power; It’s what we DO with the things we learn where the true power lies.
