Feature

Third Grade Artist in Residence

Beginning the week of March 4, Kristen Reynolds, an installation artist, sculptor, and printmaker, will be working with all third graders to create colorful wooden sculptures that consist of interlocking panels, printed with patterns designed by each student. The culminating event will be an exciting and impressive unveiling of the artistic interlocking wooden sculpture, which will travel to a variety of public locations including the Pittsfield Town Hall, Pittsfield Area Senior Center, Josiah Carpenter Library, and Northway Bank. This project has been made possible by the generous support of the Sanderson Trust Fund.

School Security Assessments

The Pittsfield School District is participating in the New Hampshire Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management’s (HSEM) school assessment program to identify effective solutions to increase the physical security of our school facilities. The assessment includes a self-reflection, site visit, and executive report from HSEM on both school facilities. Our school district’s Emergency Management Team is actively reviewing the report on PES and is preparing for a visit to PMHS this spring. We will keep you informed of the actions taken as a result of these audits to improve our school security capabilities.
