Profile students hike Coffin Pond


MAINTAINING THE WALKING TRAILS OF COFFIN POND -- Three successive sections of 9th-grade English classes from Profile School in Bethlehem, N.H. hiked around Coffin Pond in Sugar Hill on May 23 to cleanup and maintain the walking trail that circumnavigates the pond. The classes were chaperoned by their teacher, Lori Innes, and Kathie Galligan, library aide and chairperson of the Sugar Hill Conservation Commission. The students cleared the trail of small debris, picked up several bags of trash, and added a rope handrail to a section of the trail. The field trip was scheduled as a Service Learning Day for Innes' place-based Literature class. This trip had the support and encouragement of the Conservation Commission as part of an effort to make neighborhood resources more familiar to local residents. It was wet, but the students had fun. Above, some of the participating students include, from left, Liam Demers, Jake Raichle, Connor Kerivan, Sam Westover, Jayci Webb, Robin Roianov, Isabelle Holmes, Regan Kulak, Madison Opalinski, Ethan Devlin and Malachi Gregory.
