Timberlane Students participate in Newly Formed Governor’s Youth Advisory Council on Substance Misuse

In March 2017, Governor Sununu requested that the 8,000 students attending the New Hampshire Youth Summit on Opioid Awareness be part of the solution to the state’s substance misuse epidemic.  We are pleased to report that two members of the Timberlane Regional High School Peer Outreach team answered the call along with two seniors from the Life of an Owl program.

Timberlane Peer Outreach program members, Maranda St. Laurent (class of 2019) along with Emma Cross (class of 2018), joined Timberlane Life of an Owl program members, Meghan Oliver and Brendan Frezza (class of 2018), to participate in the development of the Governor’s Youth Advisory Councils’ mission and vision statements for substance misuse prevention.  This Timberlane team also participated in a discussion regarding representation of students on this council.  It was decided that two student representatives from each of the thirteen public health regions would be eventually selected to serve on the Governor’s Youth Advisory Council.

Vision: The Governor’s Youth Council’s vision is a New Hampshire that prevents substance misuse and provides recovery support for all, where citizens are informed and youth are actively involved in prevention efforts.

Mission: The Governor’s Youth Council advises the governor on legislation, events and media pertaining to substance misuse for the people of New Hampshire from a youth perspective.

Timberlane recognizes the importance of substance misuse prevention and commits to continue its ongoing efforts in providing information and resources to our student population and, as a result, the community at large.

Business Partnerships at Work in Timberlane

The Timberlane Regional School District appreciates the opportunity to partner with local business Plaistow Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics.  In 2016-17, these dentists provided screenings to our students at the Pollard Elementary School in kindergarten through second grade.

We are also pleased to share that the Plaistow Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics will expand the current program next year at Pollard School as well as branch out to two new schools, Atkinson Academy and Danville Elementary School.

A special thanks to Timberlane Alumni, Dr. Jon Wendell, and his team for the support and care provided to our students and families this year and in previous years.  Dr. Wendell and partners have provided free mouthpieces for our middle school students, dental programs for staff and their families, and a $1000 scholarship each year for a student entering dentistry or the medical field.  This very important partnership has been in existence for three years.  The Timberlane Regional School District appreciates this exceptional partnership and we look forward to other partnership opportunities.

Cleaner Greener Timberlane Program a Great Success in 2016-17

We are pleased to report during the week of June 3rd, a number of staff, students, and administrators from each of the seven district schools turned out for the spring edition of Cleaner Greener Timberlane.  Specific clean up and beautification projects were scheduled at each school inclusive of clearing and planting gardens, setting up flower boxes, cleaning courtyards, spreading new bark mulch, painting signs, and general grounds keeping. Over 80 students and staff members came together with school custodial staff to work on their planned projects. It was a wonderful week of student service around the District that culminated the first bi-annual event.  The mission and purpose of this initiative is to improve the curb appeal of district campuses and grounds, and promote community engagement. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Earl Metzler extends his thanks and appreciation to all who participated in this endeavor and looks forward to future events.
