Wendy Lambert, Chair – New Boston School Board
Date: August 25, 2016
The New Boston School Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Jennifer Gilliland as the Interim Special Education Facilitator at New Boston Central School for the 2016-2017 school year. On August 24, 2016, the New Boston School Board unanimously appointed Jenn in this role. Jenn began her career at NBCS after graduating from Rivier College and has been a Special Education Teacher for twenty years. As an educator she has provided highly-effective differentiated and specialized instruction for her students.
According to Principal Tori Underwood, “Jenn has always been a leader in our school. She has shown a strong commitment to the students and families at NBCS. She is well-respected by students, parents and staff. I am confident in her skills and ability to provide leadership and guidance to the Special Education Team.”
Jenn is looking forward to her role as an administrator. In addition to her continued support of students and their families, Jenn will provide professional development and mentoring opportunities for the staff.
Superintendent Brian Balke shares, “I have every confidence in Jenn’s knowledge, expertise, and leadership. She is very capable and is excited to continue to serve the New Boston Community in this new role.”
The Goffstown Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) wishes to extend a sincere thank you to those individuals and businesses that gave water, snack items and even opened their homes for use of the facilities during our recent deployment for the fire event at the Jutras Sign location. CERT members were deployed to perform traffic control duties in multiple locations for several hours and the hospitality shown to our members who were deployed was heartwarming and is greatly appreciated.
While we all recognize that it is the firefighters and police who do the “heavy lifting” in these emergency situations, CERT members serve as a force multiplier and secondary responders so that first responders can concentrate on the highest priority tasks. Having CERT’s efforts noticed and appreciated by the thoughtful community we serve is an especially nice bonus.
Thank you everyone!
