CBNA Student Awarded New Hampshire Seal of Biliteracy

“Though she is not a native speaker of Spanish, her work has been exemplary and she scored a perfect score of 5 on the AP exam.” – Jennifer Sommerer, Spanish Language Teacher and President Elect of the New Hampshire chapter of AATSP—American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese

 

Northwood, New Hampshire…Coe-Brown Northwood Academy Headmaster David S. Smith is pleased to announce that senior Emily Huebel has earned the New Hampshire Seal of Biliteracy. Although Huebel is not a native speaker of Spanish, her exemplary class work and perfect score on the AP exam resulted in this important recognition. She will be awarded this distinction at graduation with the Seal of Biliteracy on her diploma. Huebel is CBNA’s first recipient of this prestigious honor.

Huebel has long recognized her interest in languages. Although she never had the opportunity to travel out of the northeastern United States and Canadian Maritimes as a child, she was exposed to the basics of the Spanish language in elementary school at Saint Mary Academy in Dover, NH, and junior high at Strafford School in Strafford, NH. In fact, when her junior high Spanish teacher became her homeroom teacher, Huebel enjoyed the interplay of Spanish in daily homeroom conversations. Huebel notes, “Spanish was cool. I liked learning it, and in junior high it was like a secret code we used with friends.”

The opportunity to pursue Spanish in high school was a welcome one, and Huebel started 9th grade at Coe-Brown in Spanish 2 Honors. She loved the language and how it sounded, expanding her vocabulary whenever possible, and reading Spanish-language articles over and over until she understood them perfectly. The year prior to the AP exam, Huebel’s Spanish teacher, CBNA faculty member Jennifer Sommerer, worked with the students to improve their conversation techniques, listening skills, and understanding of Spanish culture worldwide and its influences. That in-depth immersion made the difference on the AP exam, according to Huebel, allowing her to, in her own words, “get into the zone” and power through all four components of the exam with confidence.

With Biology and a pre-med track on the horizon at St. Michael’s College, Huebel plans to add a double major in Spanish in hopes that when she becomes a doctor, her knowledge of a second language will help her communicate more effectively with all of her patients, especially those in urban centers like Boston, where she hopes to be eventually.

The Seal of Biliteracy is a national award that has been adopted by more than forty other states across the country. The award recognizes students who have studied and attained proficiency in two or more languages by high school graduation. The New Hampshire Seal of Biliteracy award was made possible through collaboration between the NH Association of World Language Teachers (NHAWLT) and the NH Statewide English Learner Educator network. The NH Association of World Language Teachers has agreed to be the stewards of this award.

CBNA Student Receives Silver Medal in 2022 National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

“We can say for certain then that a program like [The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards] doesn’t just honor artists. It creates them. It nurtures them. It gives them permission to shine brighter, to think differently, to be bolder.” – Jennifer Garner

 

When Coe-Brown Northwood Academy junior Samara Kern sat down to tackle her Flash Fiction writing assignment for her ‘Creative Writing’ class, she was not feeling particularly inspired. Kern notes, “Out of all that I have written, that was not the one that I thought would win anything. That was a surprise.” Kern’s writing piece titled “His Forgetfulness” was one of three works that Kern submitted to the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards at the New Hampshire state level where it won a Gold Key. The same writing piece went on to win a Silver Medal in the National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.

In “His Forgetfulness,” Kern creates a snapshot into the lives of two old men living in the country, former farmers, who are coping with the passage of time. One of the two men struggles with the onset of what might be dementia, but together, the two of them work together to remember, and in doing so illustrate the power of friendship, companionship, and the power of memory, or in this case, the impact of the lack thereof.

Flash Fiction is characterized as much by its brevity, as the plot and character development required within its short framework. Although Kern excels at flash fiction, she doesn’t see herself as a fiction author, preferring other genres instead. “Personal narrative is easiest, but poetry is my favorite. Fiction, nope. I just don’t see myself as that creative.” The assignment that resulted in this award-winning work gave each student in the class 30 minutes to write only 5-1,500 words, using a teacher-provided photograph as a prompt.

Kern’s teacher for her Creative Writing course, Amy Usinger, a ten-year veteran of the Coe-Brown faculty, was impressed that a sixteen-year-old young woman could so accurately portray the voice of these elderly men. Usinger commented on Kern’s “economy of language and understanding of the breadth of human experience,” and says Kern’s, “mature insight captured the subtlety of gesture for these two men who were so nostalgic over a forty-year friendship that is fading fast.”

When the email from the National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards judges arrived in Kern’s inbox, she was very surprised and promptly texted her parents, “Guess what!” Kern plans to pursue her writing skills through workshops this summer, possibly at New York University or through The Knowledge Society’s Global Virtual Program.

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards annually recognize student achievement in the visual and literary arts in twenty-eight categories, including drawing and illustration, photography, flash fiction, poetry, film and animation, journalism, and more. Since the program’s founding in 1923, the Awards have fostered the creativity and talent of millions of students, including renowned alumni who have gone on to become leaders in their fields, including Amanda Gorman, Tschabalala Self, Stephen King, Kay WalkingStick, Charles White, Joyce Carol Oates, and Andy Warhol. An Award signifies to parents, teachers, the community and colleges that a student is an accomplished artist or writer. The Awards offer opportunities for creative teens to earn recognition, exhibition, publication and scholarships.

In 2022, only twenty-four students from eight different New Hampshire high schools, both public and private, representing thirty-one written works, received National awards. Each work of art and writing is blindly adjudicated, first locally through the more than 100 affiliates of the Alliance, and then nationally by panels of judges comprised of renowned artists, authors, educators and industry experts. Works are judged on originality, technical skill, and emergence of personal vision or voice.

The Scholastic Art Awards of New Hampshire
The Scholastic Art Awards of New Hampshire (SAANH) is a regional visual arts affiliate of the prestigious national Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Each year in September, the call goes out from SAANH to all New Hampshire’s Art Educators, grades 7-12, to register and submit their outstanding student artwork.

There are 17 individual categories that students may enter work in. They range from Drawing and Painting to Sculpture and Mixed Media. Seniors may also submit a body of 6 pieces of work in a portfolio to compete for a number of cash and scholarships.

The SAANH believes that a moment of positive recognition can inspire a student to pursue a lifetime of creative expression. It is critical to provide each emerging generation of creative leaders with early encouragement and to support artistic development. Acknowledging that these skills are best nurtured in an environment in which creativity is valued, it is also essential to recognize and reward educators for their classroom efforts to encourage creativity, and to cultivate support for young artists.

CBNA Theatre Program Features “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown”

Northwood, New Hampshire… Coe-Brown Northwood Academy’s theatre program is pleased to announce their 2021 fall musical You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown! This spirited musical about a beloved icon of American popular culture features music, scenery, and acting by CBNA students that will knock your socks off! Come join Snoopy, Linus, Lucy, Schroeder, and the rest of the Peanuts gang as they search for the meaning of true happiness.

The CBNA Theatre program participants are thrilled to perform for a live audience again this fall. Junior Clair Burbank (playing Sally), freshman Ethan Welch (ensemble and swing), and freshman Emma Perry (ensemble) all agreed that they loved, “…just getting to play being kids and without having any big worries.” Junior Sam Marcotte, who plays Charlie Brown, loves the sense of community this production has had, while Junior Chris Reed, who plays Linus, echoed those thoughts, noting that, “… he just loves getting to work with this group of performers and crew.” All of the actors agree that the set and costumes, and especially the dog house, make rehearsals even more fun. The production’s logo was student designed by CBNA Junior Ian Helm.

This production is directed by CBNA faculty member Jennifer Moynihan, with additional faculty support from choreographer Kolby Hume and music director Erin Davis. Moynihan notes:

For me, I would like to say how lucky I have been to work with such a dedicated group of students who have learned so many aspects of theatre beyond acting in this show. We have had amazing volunteers in Danielle Muir and her artistic eye, and Dana Haley who helped us build some of our set pieces. Erin Davis is our new music director and she has been a wonderful asset to our students in learning the music and learning how to make character and music work together. Kolby Hume is the other essential piece of our puzzle- she choreographs, costumes, and takes care of many behind the scenes aspects, which allows me to focus on the big picture and dedicate time to blocking and character work with students. Without many dedicated hands this performance would not be possible.

Evening performances will take place Friday, November 12 and Saturday, November 13 at 7 pm, with a matinee performance on Saturday, November 13 at 1 pm. Mobile tickets are available online now. Tickets will also be available for cash purchase one hour before curtain on the day of the performances. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for students/seniors, and $5 for youth. This show is appropriate for kids of all ages. Seating is general admission, although special need requests will be honored when possible.

The logo for this production, shown here, was designed by Coe-Brown Junior Ian Helm.
