STRATHAM – For some students, the transition from hours outdoors in the summer to being herded into classrooms may come with a bit of a struggle. Let’s face it, not all kids flourish in a traditional classroom, which may lead to frustrations with school and learning. The Acorn School of Stratham allows kids to develop healthy, encouraging learning habits by forging (maybe even disguising) their love of outdoors and hands-on activities with education. To celebrate the new school year, and the unique atmosphere The Acorn School has created, they are hosting a Back to School Comedy Night from 5:00 – 8:30 p.m. on Nov. 15 at Portsmouth Gaslight Co. The night includes food, drinks and laughter by comedian Wes Hazard, named one of “5 Boston Comedians to Watch” by the Boston Globe.

The night of the event the Acorn School will announce the winner of their ongoing 50/50 raffle. Only 200 raffle tickets are being sold at $50 a piece for a chance to win $5,000. Ticket purchases for the raffle will help support the Acorn School. The winner will be drawn at the fundraising event on Nov. 15, but participants do not need to be present to win. Those interested in the raffle should contact Chrissy Caron at cbakercaron@gmail.com for ticket information.
