CONWAY — Kennett High School biology classes have recently completed a "Native Species Planting Project" with the mission to promote awareness and conservation of native plants in the Conway area. This project was supported by the UNH Cooperative Extension and funded by the Mountain Garden Club.
Early this year, students in the Biology program along with students in the Greenhouse program at Kennett were given a presentation on plant reproduction and native species by Olivia Saunders who is a Field Specialist in Food and Agriculture and Ralph Lutgen who is a UNH master gardener and Mountain Garden club member.
Students began to research and investigate certain local varieties of plants, trees and shrubs that would be available to purchase and that benefit and support the local animals and insects at the Kennett facility. Students then put together a wish list of plants for the garden.
The Mountain Garden Club funded the purchase of the native plants. Mc Sheerys Nursery supplied the plants and contributed with a donation. These plants were recently planted in front of the high school with the help from Mr. Lutjen and Kennett Grounds Manager, Andy Bechtold.
Additional plants will continue to be added to the 'welcome garden' each year as biology students move through curriculum on plant and animal reproduction.
Future plans for community based projects at Kennett include an interpretive ecology trail around the Kennett facility and also a field guide produced by Kennett students describing the variety of native plants and trees at Kennett High School.
More information on this project and other work from biology students can be found on the KHS website found at khsmwv.org .

CONWAY — Kennett Middle School students celebrated their reading accomplishments this school year with a visit from author, Jack Gantos, and other special activities. A RED (Read Every Day) Celebration was held on May 27 and recognized the 1,225,408 pages read this year by students! This page total is equivalent to 6,127 books!
To honor this achievement, a red paper chain was constructed to represent the total number of books read. Each link in this chain represents 200 pages that a student has read this year. Stop by the school to see this massive display of reading accomplishment!
The highlight of the RED Celebration were presentations by renowned author, Jack Gantos, whose accomplishments include winning the Newbery Award in 2012 for Dead End in Norvelt and writing the Rotten Ralph and Joey Pigza series.
Gantos enthralled the students with his humorous stories about the creation of his characters. In addition to entertaining them, Gantos discussed his story development ideas and showed them how sketches help him refine a writing idea. At the end of the presentation, students had an opportunity to ask questions of their guest.
Two other events were part of the school's reading celebration. Teams of students competed before live audiences in Battle of the Books, seeing which teams could correctly answer the most questions based on 70 different novels.
Students also played READO, a game testing their knowledge of literary terms The winners of the games were awarded free books, and snacks were graciously provided by Hannaford Supermarket.

CONWAY — The Kennett High School Student Council recently ordered and hung two banners in the main lobby of the high school: one to honor the past present, and future valedictorians and salutatorians, and one to honor the past, present and future student body presidents and vice presidents of Kennett.
The proudly hung canvas banners list the honorees from each year, starting in 2008, when the first class graduated from the Redstone campus.
The student council hopes to promote academic achievement and school leadership by honoring students who have done exceptionally well academically or made a difference at Kennett through the student council.
This year, for the class of 2014, the Val/Sal banner honors Brian Caputo and Talia Vaughan, and the Student Council banner honors Eliza Burke and Rachel Samia.
The Kennett student council has achieved a great deal this year, including ordering these banners, and the council hopes to pass the torch on to equally strong leaders next year.
