Shaker Regional School District

Serving the Communities of Belmont and Canterbury, New Hampshire


BHS chorus & drama student, Michael Sanborn, in his score in the November of '13 All State audition, scored highly enough to win a spot in the 2015 All Eastern Music Festival Chorus, an ensemble comprised of music students chosen from the 13 North-Eastern United States.  Up against power houses like New York and Massachusetts, little ol' Belmont High has a student singing in this very competitive ensemble.


As it turns out, there are 7 students from NH in the Chorus, another 15 who are in one of the ensembles, the Treble Choir, the Orchestra and the band.

To put that into a little closer perspective, only three New Hampshire students have earned this honor this year.

The ensembles are chosen only every two years, and we are so very proud to let you know that Michael and his chorus teacher, Scott Lounsbury, will join the other musicians and teachers at the National Association for Music Education Eastern Conference in Providence, RI, in early April.


Welcome Volunteers


The Shaker Regional School District recognizes the valuable contribution made to the school program through the volunteer efforts of parents and other community members. Anyone interested in volunteering, please contact the principal of the school for which you wish to volunteer.


Anyone who volunteers in the Shaker Regional School District must complete an annual volunteer affidavit. A criminal background check including obtaining the results of district processed fingerprinting is also required. This must be completed prior to the beginning of any volunteer event or activity.
(Fingerprinting does not need to be completed annually)


If you plan to coach a team, chaperone a field trip, work on a school-wide activity or help in the classroom anytime during the upcoming school year you should plan on taking advantage of one of these fingerprinting clinics.

Please note that it may take up to four weeks for the fingerprints to be processed. Volunteers cannot begin until the background check is completed.




You may also contact the SAU office to schedule an appointment during the day if you cannot attend any of the above clinics.
