Two outstanding Eagle Scout projects were dedicated in Sandown this week. Both were at Sandown North Elementary School, a hive of activity these days.
On Sunday, Cody Sears conducted a dedication ceremony for a shade pavilion he designed and built with the generous assistance of two well-known contractors in town, Hans Nicholaison and Paul D’Amore. Roofing materials were also donated. The quality of the construction is outstanding with perfect siting. It will be well used by teachers for outdoor classes and many other functions certainly. The district attractively mulched around the structure and provided steps and a ramp up to it.
Yesterday during the bustling open house at Sandown North, Jake Chaput dedicated a new school sign that will allow more messaging – not to mention being a whole lot snazzier.
Sandown has benefited from an extraordinarily high number of Eagle Scouts which is a tribute to the scout leaders of our community, parents and their hardworking, community-minded children. The school district is thankful for their tremendous contributions and we can all be very proud that these young people are among us and selected their former school as the site of their lasting contribution. Cody and Jake, jobs very well done. Thank you!
As a side note, the school itself looked cheerful and beautifully maintained at the busy open house yesterday. The enthusiasm for a new school year was evident in every smiling face and in the many creative preparations teachers had made to welcome their new students.
