At the end of each school year, the SAU 39 Brick School Staff comes together to enjoy a BBQ on the front porch of the 1854 Brick Schoolhouse in which they have the pleasure of working.
At this year’s BBQ, staff honored Peter Warburton as he finishes up his 7th and final year as Superintendent of Schools for SAU 39- Amherst, Mont Vernon, and Souhegan Cooperative School Districts.
Given Peter’s appreciation for the arts and the historic Amherst Village, staff presented him with a framed watercolor print of the Brick School by artist Joyce Kingman. Joyce resided in Amherst for 25 years and currently resides in California. She returns to New Hampshire each summer to visit family and was able to stop by the BBQ. Peter was speechless when presented with the print and simultaneously introduced to the artist. It was a special event for all.
