Letter To The Editor


To the Editor,

Yowsa! Yowsa! Yowsa! I am in heaven and Rachael Welch is smiling down on me. Imagine, both Tom Chase and Lucy Edwards attacking me in the same Sun issue. Only adding in Bernie Sanders and Fidel Castro to make it a socialist foursome would have been better.


The decision on where, in this huge 200 mile wide metropolis, elections will be held will be based on the best interests of the citizens of Northwood. I am not hiding under a rock or behind my mother’s skirts. [email protected], 942-5463, 303-5224.


Changing the subject. I totally understand that it often appears that I am a bull in a china shop. That is calculated and purposeful. I would really appreciate it if you would understand that while I feel that our educational system is grossly failing the very people that it is supposed to be for, that failure is in very small part attributable to our teachers. If you break it into five components, teachers, local administration, which includes school boards, parents, state administration and federal bureaucracy, the failure is respectively 10%, 15% 20% 20% and 35%.


The bureaucracy and total bs that our teachers and staff have to go through is ridiculous. It takes so much time away from education. The more the Federal and State nitwits invade and impose their will on our schools, the further our students fall behind in the world theatre. Our world is getting smaller, We are falling further behind daily.


I appreciate and respect our teachers. My only criticism is that the system does not allow the best of the best to be recognized and financially appreciated. The worst should not get the same as the best.

CBNA FFA Members Help Clean Up Land In Northwood

CBNA FFA chapter members and town volunteers prepare to clean up town property on Olde Canterbury Road in Northwood.


On November 5, 2015, Coe-Brown Northwood Academy FFF “Much-To-Do” Chapter members, along with local volunteers and town officials helped to clean up a town owned piece of property near Olde Canterbury Road in Northwood, NH that was heavily littered with tires, trash, wood and other debris.  The town is trying to clean the land to improve the environment in the area, as well as so that the property can be sold.


One of the missions of FFA is to do community service that benefits the community in regard to its natural resources.  Students learn valuable lessons in recycling, land value, personal skills in community responsibility with regards to safety, as well as helping restore aesthetics to their community.


FFA members involved with the project included Sydney Wilson, Anna Prescott-Nichols, Shayne Henry, Jason Palmer, Clayton Canfield, Emery Travers, Ryan Graeme, Sam Whitehouse, and advisor Sarah Ward. Volunteers from the town of Northwood included Town Administrator Joe Gunter, Town Representative Tim Jandebeur, the Porcella Family and employees of North Ridge Construction and Tucker Docko of Docko Excavation.


Students will be returning at a later to continue to help continue the process as there is still a great deal of work still to do.



CBNA Ranks High On State Mandated Testing Of Juniors


Coe-Brown Northwood Academy, along with most other secondary schools in NH, administered Smarter Balanced testing for Math and English Language Arts and the NECAP test for Science to the Class of 2016 during the 2014-2015 school year.  Smarter Balanced testing indicates a progression to college and career readiness.  Scores are reported at four levels: one – minimal understanding, two – partial understanding, three – adequate understanding, and four – thorough understanding.  CBNA is proud to report that 83% of Coe-Brown students tested scored a three or higher as compared to the state average of 59% in English Language Arts.  This placed CBNA fourth in the state among all the high schools. In Math, 67% of Coe-Brown students tested scored a three or higher compared to the state average of 37%, placing CBNA second in the state in math on the Smarter Balanced Assessment.


The NECAP Science scores are also reported at four levels with Level Three being proficient and Level Four being proficient with distinction.  Fifty percent of CBNA students tested on the NECAP Science test scored at Levels Three or Four as compared to 33% of the students in NH scoring at Levels Three or Four.

On November 20th, Commander Daniel Barnhart from the Veterans of Foreign Wars Joseph J. Jeffrey Memorial Post 7217 presented awards to three Coe Brown Students for winning the Post Voice of Democracy (VOD) Essay Contest.  With over fifty entries this year the selection committee found it very difficult to choose a winner.  First place was awarded to Sandra Black, second place to Alexis Kendall and third place to Kathryn Levesque, all sophomores at Coe Brown Northwood Academy. Each student received a framed certificate and cash prize for their winning essays. The essays will be forward to the VFW District Seven VOD committee which will choose the District winner to be forwarded to the State competition.  VFW District Seven includes the towns of Portsmouth, Kingston, Derry, Exeter, Raymond, Northwood, Salem, Lee and Hampstead.

The Voice of Democracy Essay Contest is held annually by the Veterans of Foreign Wars and nearly 40,000 high school students from across the country enter to win a share of the $2 million in educational scholarships and incentives awarded. Last year the New Hampshire state winner was awarded a $4,000 scholarship by the National VOD committee.
