Parents + Kids + Math = Fun?

Bonnie Torrey swears math is fun. No, really. To prove it, the Fisk School inclusionary specialist organizes an annual Math Night that brings students and family members together for a night of fun activities.

Ms. Torrey pulls together staff and student volunteers from the district to set up and facilitate 13 activity stations throughout the Fisk Elementary School. Parents and students work their way through various math- and STEM-themed challenges designed to promote creative problem-solving, an understanding of technology resources, and an appreciation for hands-on learning practices.

Making Dreams Come True

Sarah's wish is to go on a Disney Cruise to meet her favorite characters. Salem High School Key Club members have been working for months to help this dream come true.

"We have the unique opportunity this year to be helping a girl from our own community of Salem," says Key Club Advisor Jennifer Monterrosa.

The student organization -- working with Make-A-Wish New Hampshire -- is hoping to raise funds to help Sarah, a 15-year-old Woodbury student fighting a life-threatening illness. Despite her medical complications, Sarah is active in Special Olympics, loves to dance, and listens to Taylor Swift.

To help Sarah relize her dream, Key Club members solicited donations, entertainment, and contributions for more than 100 raffle items in support of the Make-A-Wish Benefit Dinner to be held Saturday, March 17 in the Davis Gym. The 300-seat event is sold out.
