Senior Spotlight: Brianna Center
Note: Each week, we will feature a few seniors with a spotlight article, written by a staff member.
This article was written by Teacher John Croteau
A little known fact about Brianna Center, she was an integral part of a Sanborn soccer team that went undefeated and captured a State Championship! As a matter of fact, Brianna has been continuing her champion ways throughout high school. Although lately, Brianna has veered away from being on Sanborn sports teams to focus on volunteering as a mentor at different sports clinics within the Sanborn community, helping younger athletes improve both their soccer and basketball skills. Brianna is excited to be attending Endicott College and has her sights set on becoming a physical therapist. She states she first became interested in physical therapy as a young athlete, realizing that her uncompromising play sometimes resulted in needing physical therapy. Brianna quickly came to appreciate physical therapist as they hastened her return to the court or field. She wants to return that gift and do the same for others. Brianna has enjoyed her time at Sanborn dedicating herself to being an impressive student-athlete, all the while helping out the Class of 2019’s Student Council with their many events, including Homecoming and Winter Carnival. Brianna loves binge watching (who doesn’t), and taking her dog to the beach! She can’t wait for this fall to begin her adult life striving for her dream of being a physical therapist. The Sanborn community wishes Brianna well in all of her endeavors. 
Senior Spotlight: Brian Toto
Note: Each week, we will feature a few seniors with a spotlight article, written by a staff member.
This article was written by Teacher Sam Parsons
I’ve had the opportunity to get to know Brian Toto during his Junior and Senior years at Sanborn. During these two years Brian has been a student in two of my math classes. Brian is a hard worker inside and outside the classroom and I’ve been lucky enough to experience that first hand.

I first met Brian during his Junior year of high school. My first impressions of Brian were that he seemed like a quiet, respectful student, with a never ending sneaker collection. As I got to know Brian I learned that he is a funny, genuinely friendly kid, who really wants to succeed. 

During Brian’s Senior year of high school I’ve seen him grow into a young adult who’s ready to make his move into the workforce. This year Brian has been working at an internship as an electrician’s apprentice. He’s been working at his father’s business for the whole year, and has learned a lot about the field.

Brian’s presence has always been a welcome addition to my classroom. I’m always surprised by his insight, usually about basketball stats, sometimes about the mathematics that’s occurring during my class. Brian is well respected by his classmates. His knowledge about life and the world around him is not lost on his peers. I constantly witness other students asking for his opinions and suggestions on many subjects, school related or otherwise. When asked for a quote, Brian’s sister Leah responded with: “He’s the best kid in the world!”

When Brian receives his High School Diploma in June it will certainly be a bittersweet moment for me. I’ll miss the positivity he’s brought to my classroom, but I can’t wait to see what he does next. Good luck Brian!
Senior Spotlight: Kyle Bilodeau
Note: Each week, we will feature a few seniors with a spotlight article, written by a staff member.
This article was written by teacher Donna Moseley
When I saw that Kyle’s Senior Spotlight was available, I was quick to sign up to write it because Kyle is the type of student you remember for all the right reasons even after they have graduated. As a Sophomore, Kyle stood out from his peers, he was mature for his age and self-aware in ways that most of his peers were not. When I talked to him about his spotlight and asked for his input, I was not surprised by what he had to offer, you see, Kyle is still wise beyond his years. This will serve him well as he moves on from Sanborn and into the Air Force after he graduates.

Kyle has been on a journey of self-discovery these four years, he will tell you that he is not the same person he was when he started his freshman year. His time here at Sanborn has helped him to become more confident in his abilities, to face challenges head on and to be more independent. This journey has helped him become an admirable young man who does what is right because it is the right thing even if no one is watching.

In addition to academics, Kyle was involved in a number of extra curricular activities as well. Kyle played football each of his four years here at Sanborn. He also participated in spring track Freshman, Sophomore, and Senior year as well as winter track his Sophomore year. He was also a member of the Card Club his first two years at Sanborn.

Kyle has taken a variety of classes including woodshop, Spanish, gym and marine biology. He learned a lot more than just content from each of these classes. Woodshop taught him great skill and that it feels good to own something you made yourself. He also enjoyed the fun games they would play in Spanish class and the lessons about the culture. In addition to his love for Gym class, he has also loved Science, especially Marine Biology and the pet fish growing in a tank. 

There were two teachers who Kyle singled out as playing particularly meaningful roles in his high school experience. The first is Coach White who he describes as someone who “...is just the man, wicked funny dude and an amazing coach. He never really got mad either it was always just tough love to help set you straight but he knew when to take a more calm approach.” 
The feelings of admiration are clearly mutual as Mr. White explains, “I have had the pleasure of knowing Kyle in a few different ways. I have coached Kyle as a member of the Sanborn Football team. As a football player, Kyle is a fantastic teammate. He is always willing to put in the extra work to accomplish a goal. In the classroom, Kyle is determined, his attention to detail always translates to above average work.” 

The second teacher is Mrs. Heather Wheeler, who he describes as “... just one of the sweetest ladies I’ve ever known.” Adding, “It’s almost impossible to get down on yourself with Mrs. Wheeler around, you can say one negative thing like “I'm not smart” and suddenly you’re being hit with a whirlwind of compliments which she's not saying just to say, she actually believes in you and sees greatness .”

When asked about Kyle, Mrs Wheeler said, “Kyle is an amazing kid. Curious, good-natured, friendly, well-liked by his peers, a hard worker, a leader in the classroom. I've had Kyle twice as a student, once as a freshman and once as a senior, and have enjoyed watching him mature into an empathetic and dependable young man. He is curious and thoughtful and takes an interest in his learning as well as whatever else may be going on in my classroom. It is not unlike him to delve deeply into a topic and to teach his classmates what he learns. He is a pleasure to be around, and I am sure Sanborn will miss him next year as much as I will.”

Indeed, Kyle will be missed by many of us.
Senior Spotlight: Madelyn Schubert
Note: Each week, we will feature a few seniors with a spotlight article, written by a staff member.
This article was written by Teacher Liz Richardson
Madelyn Schubert is known for her studious and sweet nature. Getting to know her in science class, it makes sense that Madelyn wants to work in the nursing field. She has worked hard over her years in high school to gain independence and knowledge and an ability to tell her own story. These skills will benefit her as she continues to be a lifelong learner. Madelyn has participated on our basketball and softball teams, and tried out Key Club freshman year. She had to find her own way of making a difference, which happened when she started the Health Science Technologies program at SST her junior year.  

Her best memories from high school come from getting involved in the activities around homecoming and winter carnival, when she started helping with the outside of school pieces her sophomore year. Showing her support and practicing school spirit helped her meet new people and expand her friend group. Her favorite classes have been in English. Sophomore English opened her mind to the realities that other people face. Madelyn enjoyed the interactions she had with her classmates and writing about her own coming of age. She says this was the first class that helped her learn about all of the different ways you could become your own person and gain independence. Junior English shaped her view of storytelling. Madelyn enjoyed reading the classics like Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Both of these novels helped her see how stories fit into history and how storytelling culture hasn’t really changed. She likes to write her own stories and wants to read more of these types of novels.

Over at SST, Madelyn has participated in many dissections, including a brain, heart, muscles and bones. She credits SST with teaching her how to care for people by actually practicing the skills. Thanks to SST, Madelyn has been completing an internship at the Rockingham County Nursing Home which has pushed her to get her LNA before this summer. Next year, Madelyn will start her schooling at a local community college in order to earn her associate’s degree and work as an LNA. After community college, Madelyn wants to get her RN but knows it will take dedication. Her dream is to work in the ER or some other part of a hospital taking care of people when they are unable to take care of themselves. When she isn’t hard at work, Madelyn’s favorite down time activities are to watch movies and spend time with friends. Her favorite thing to do is being able to drive around to places like the beach or to get ice cream and other treats. Congratulations, Madelyn!

Graduation Has Been Set for June 7, 2019
A Message From Principal Brian M. Stack
Dear Students in the Class of 2019:

It is hard to believe your time at Sanborn is almost over! This is an exciting time of year with many events and activities culminating with graduation set for Friday, June 7, 2019. Congratulations to all seniors on your many accomplishments.
 
If weather permits, we will hold graduation on the library lawn. In the event of poor weather, we may have to hold graduation in the gymnasium. If this is the case all attendees will need a ticket to enter the gym. The week of graduation you will receive eight (8) admission tickets for the gymnasium ceremony. That same week, we will also hold a lottery to distribute any extra tickets that we can to families that need more than 8 tickets. Due to fire code regulations, we may not be able to accommodate all requests for additional tickets. You are encouraged to ask your classmates if they have extra tickets they could give you if you need more than eight.
 
The following is a list of senior activities for the remainder of the school year. Seniors who are on the “probationary” graduation list are not permitted to participate in senior activities and should speak to their counselor to find out what they need to do to be removed from probation. Please note the mandatory activities and graduation practices on June 6 and 7. Please also remember that all students must have their $50 class dues ($20 senior dues) paid in order to participate in the graduation ceremonies.
