DOVER – The Dover Chamber was pleased to welcome Seacoast Charter School with a traditional ribbon cutting ceremony. Seacoast Charter School is a publicly funded kindergarten through 8th grade school focused on experiencing education through the arts.
Facing a sudden move or imminent closure, the state's oldest charter school announced Wednesday it has found a new home in Dover, and will open for fall semester Sept. 8. Seacoast Charter School is also welcoming new Interim Head of School Peter Sweet, who has a 35-year career as an educator and was most recently principal at North Hampton School.
Hikers have been hearing the sweet song of the Bicknell's thrush at dusk in high elevations of New Hampshire this summer, and two of these rare birds were spotted last Thursday. Sightings have been reported this summer at other locations above 4,000 feet, particularly Cannon Mountain where the habitat there is perfect for nesting.
