9 TOP 10 REASONS TO VOTE YES # 10 – Every Lakes Region School but Franklin and Belmont have an auditorium - Bow High School – capacity of Derryfield High School – capacity of Gilford High School – capacity of Interlakes High School – capacity of Laconia High School – capacity of Merrimack Valley High School – capacity of Moultonboro High School – capacity of Newfound High School – capacity of Prospect Mountain – capacity of Winnisquam High School – capacity of 350

10 TOP 10 REASONS TO VOTE YES # 9 – Belmont High School has a capacity of 500 students. We now have 445 and expect 485 next year.  This construction will free up 3 classrooms in the High School 1.Existing Band/Music room becomes 2 Special Education Classrooms 2.Existing Art Room becomes a Mathematics Classroom 3.Existing Special Education Classroom becomes English Classroom 4.Frees Alcove in Cafeteria for larger lunch numbers or for future classroom space  Eliminates the need for portable classrooms in two years  The classrooms are presently used at 90 – 100% capacity  Existing Band Room and Practice Room are too small and provide inadequate storage.

11

12 TOP 10 REASONS TO VOTE YES # 8 – We need this now  We already have groups using the hallways for practices (i.e. Jazz Band, Chorus and Drama)  The Lakes Region is one of the fastest growing regions in New Hampshire, with Belmont and Canterbury particularly desirable communities  Many new housing starts approved in Belmont and Canterbury with considerable impact on space needs  The reputation of the schools and staff in the district is a drawing card for prospective residents

13 TOP 10 REASONS TO VOTE YES # 7 – Our Music Program is a shining light in the District and deserves an adequate venue in which to perform  Over 25% of our student population participates in the Music Program  Residents have complained for years about the bleacher seating and heat at concerts  A gymnasium is not acoustically designed as a performance venue for concerts

14

15 TOP 10 REASONS TO VOTE YES # 6 – The auditorium will provide a venue for our performing groups, from the elementary and middle schools as well.

16 TOP 10 REASONS TO VOTE YES # 5 – We will be able to expand our offering in the Dramatic Arts  We have had to turn people away from performances in the past  25% of our students participate in Drama  Alcove in the Cafeteria is woefully inadequate for any big production and residents have complained about viewing and hearing performances  Alcove in the Cafeteria may be needed for larger lunch numbers or as future classroom space

17 TOP 10 REASONS TO VOTE YES # 4 – We will be able to rent out the facility for events.  Dance and Music Recitals  Summer Theatre  Revenue received will help defray operating costs

18 TOP 10 REASONS TO VOTE YES # 3 – Presently we have very low debt.  Retired the Elementary Bond last year  High School Bond has only 7 years remaining before that is retired

19

20 TOP 10 REASONS TO VOTE YES # 2 – This building serves the entire communities of Belmont and Canterbury, not just the school district.  Currently no facility of this kind in either community  More conducive site for town and school district meetings  Allows space for cultural events for our communities

21 TOP 10 REASONS TO VOTE YES # 1 – The State will pay 48% of the principal – that’s almost ½ off!  The Alternate Building Aid Formula is based on the average of the Equalized Valuation per pupil and the Median Family Income of the communities  In all likelihood, Shaker Regional School District will never again receive this much State Building Aid

22 WHAT DO WE GET?  23,200 square foot addition  800 Seat Auditorium  Band Room (2,000 sq. ft.)  Band Storage (300 sq. ft.)  2 Practice Rooms (100 sq. ft. each)  Chorus Classroom (900 sq. ft.)  Art Room (1,200 sq. ft.) with Storage  3 – 4 classrooms made available in the existing High School  30’ x 78’ Stage (2,430 sq. ft)
