  • Every child and adult is empowered and enjoys his or her work

SMS Community Outreach Programs

Martha LaPerle Outreach

Dear Community Members,
As the holiday season approaches, many people begin to think more about those less fortunate among us.

Local elementary schools along with the Cooperative Middle School (CMS) and Exeter High School (EHS) are in the process of requesting donations to help prepare food baskets for families.

Coordinated by our wonderful School Nurses in honor of long-time CMS Nurse Martha LaPerle who was known for her outstanding and unselfish commitment to local families--especially through food baskets over the holidays--once again donations are being sought.

These contributions may be in the form of tax-deductible monetary donations made directly to one of the schools or in the from of grocery gift cards that help individual families purchase what they most need.  

Please consider helping those among us in this way.

Donations may be made directly to you local school nurse or mailed directly to:

School Health Office
Exeter High School
1 Blue Hawk Drive
Exeter, NH 03833 

Thank you for your consideration and assistance with this important part of our collective mission to help others.
