On Saturday, May 15th, stu- dents from every grade in both the elementary and middle school levels took on a piece of ownership for their school. It was a Saturday designated as a winter storm make-up day, and it provided a perfect opportunity for students to mesh curriculum with hands-on learning.
To honor Arbor Day, four donat- ed flowering crab trees were delivered by Jon Francis and planted along the back side of the school in an effort to contin- ue to beautify the campus. Next- door neighbor and business owner Kevin Patten graciously accepted and volunteered the job of drilling the main holes for the trees with his Kubota trac- tor’s posthole digger. Each of the grades took ownership in planting a tree and was guided in the proper planting proce- dures. The trees are now visible from every elementary grade classroom and will serve as a reminder for their own contribu- tions to the school.
The Haverhill Corner Library will sponsor a book discussion of Will in the World: How Shakespeare Became Shakespeare by Stephen Greenblatt, the library has announced. The discussion will be held at the library on Wednesday, June 29 at 7:00 PM, and will be free and open to the
As an additional part of this outdoor education and com- munity service, local profes- sional arborist, Quentin Mack, led presentations on the topic of trees in general. Mr. Mack shared his knowledge of trees with several sessions including all students within the school.
In conjunction with the tree planting project, the middle school students actually multi- tasked that same day with an ambitious construction project at the front of the school. Under direction of the two middle school teachers, the 7th and 8th grade students constructed a huge garden planter at the base of the recently student-painted WES sign next to the parking lot. Recycled railroad ties were joined together to serve as the rugged base for the planter. The project was completed with entirely all donated and free labor. Again, the school’s most generous neighbor, Kevin Patten and his sons contributed their free tractor labor by removing a stump and then helping to fill in the railroad tie

Wentworth Students Give Back To The School______________ Tristan Blake- Contributor
planter with a substantial amount of free fill. The Town of Wentworth Highway Department also generously trucked in a load of donated loam to top off the planter. In addition, both the Chierichetti family of Wentworth and the owners of Full Throttle Motor Sports of Warren donated peren- nial flowers for the beautifica- tion project.
But when it seemed that the generosity and goodwill was done, yet another force stepped up to the plate. The 8th grade graduating class wanted to give their own gift back to the school, so they have donated a part of the proceeds from their class trip fund-raising efforts toward the cost of the railroad ties. Undoubtedly, when the 8th graders are planting the flowers this week, they will be looking over their shoulders in admira- tion at the vast line-up of tulips that have sprouted along the side of the school building, yet another student effort from last fall by Wentworth students.
Shakespeare Book Discussion At Haverhill Corner Library___ public.
A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award, this modern biography of Shakespeare will also be the perfect introduction to the series of performances scheduled to begin the following week. The Alumni Hall cultural center as
arranged for the Theatre Under the Stars troupe to offer weekly performances of Shakespeare’s plays in July and early August; these will be held Wednesday evenings on the lawn between Alumni Hall and the library, and they will be free and open to the public.
Will in the World is a brilliant combination of biography, cul- tural history, and criticism by one of the foremost living schol- ars of Shakespeare. Greenblatt edited The Norton Shakespeare, teaches at Harvard University, and is one of the founders of a school of criticism known as New Historicism. Will in the World was named one of the top ten books of the year by the New York Times and the best non-fiction book of the year by Time magazine.
“Greenblatt’s account of Shakespeare’s life is brilliantly illuminated by his encyclopedic knowledge of both the Elizabethan era and of

Shakespeare’s own works,” notes library trustee John Landrigan, who will lead the discussion. “The Theatre Under the Stars troupe is devoted to performing Shakespeare in the rollicking, populist style of the Bard’s own era, and readers of Will in the World will come to those performances with an enhanced appreciation for what they’ll see.”
Copies of Will in the World will be available to borrow from the library in advance of the discus- sion
