We also wish to thank the Epsom Public Library for the use of their community room and our outreach coordinator, Jennifer Army.



Epsom Public Library


The Epsom Public Library will show the film, 42, the story of Jackie Robinson, on Monday, July 29 at 7:00 p.m. as part of the Summer Reading Program for Adults.


Robinson broke the color barrier when he became the first black man to join the major leagues of baseball in 1947. Called up from the minor leagues by the Brooklyn Dodgers, he faced and had to overcome incredible prejudice, jeering, and taunting, even at times from his own team mates.  According to reviewer Chris Ball of The Plain Dealer, “this inspiring biopic unsparingly depicts the enormous racial hostility greeting this future Hall of Famer in 1947.”


Robinson was admitted to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962, and on June 4, 1972, the Dodgers retired his uniform number 42.


Soft drinks and popcorn will be served at the movie.

Epsom Central School Staff and Faculty

Epsom School_Kennedy_Heather.jpg

Mrs. Heather Kennedy, Spanish & Mathematics Teacher


As a visitor enters Heather’s classroom late in the afternoon, one is likely to find a few middle school kids chatting amiably with her. She teaches Spanish to students in Grades 5 through 8, and Math to Grades 6 and 8.


Heather graduated from UNH with a degree in Hospitality Management, with a minor in Spanish. She later became highly qualified in both Spanish and Math. Recruited out of college by Hyatt Hotels, she worked as a restaurant manager in Texas for several years. She is entering her ninth year at ECS. Heather works in the Homework Club and is co-leader for the Unified Arts Team.


Heather enjoys working with her students and loves Math and Spanish. She feels that children in Grades 6-8 are at the ideal age for teachers to build relationships with and be a positive influence to them. She also liked teaching younger kids and watching them grow each year. She enjoys working at ECS because it’s a small school and she enjoys close relationships with both students and staff. She says, “We’re like a family in that we don’t always get along but we’ll always love one another.” She would like parents to know that, “The teachers are on their side in the effort to help, support, and educate the kids, to make them self-sufficient and be, hopefully, happy.”


Heather married her husband, Ryan, last summer. They live in Barrington with their cat, Munchkin. She enjoys reading, watching the Red Sox, and traveling, particularly to Disney World.
