Dear Parents / Guardians:

We’re excited to begin the month of April, which will hopefully, after this latest storm, bring a warm spring and exciting end to the school year.  March featured some wonderful events.  Some brief highlights included our Community Service Club who carried out a random act of kindness by celebrating our teaching staff with treats in each of the faculty rooms.  It was a really nice gesture from our students.  Our Marching Band & Color Guard performed at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City and did a fantastic job.  On Saturday, March 25th the Rotary Club hosted a Speech Competition and we’re pleased to announce that sophomores Ashley Lynch and Vincent Del Signore took home first and second place respectively. They each earned monetary prizes and Ashley will advance to the district semi-finals on April 2nd.  Congratulations to Aiyana Herrera for taking gold in the SkillsUSA 2017 Cosmetology competition at the Manchester School of Technology.  She will advance to the national competition in KY.

The Londonderry High School Hall of Fame was resurrected in 2016 after a 20-year hiatus. Looking forward, the 2017 Selection Committee will induct its next class on Mack Plaque weekend in September. In consideration of this induction date change, the application process will begin April 1st and run through April 30th. For more information regarding nominations, please click the link to the left of the webpage.  Our Students of the Month for March are: Emily Powers (Gr 9), Morgan Gosselin (Gr 10), Kacey Krawic (Gr 11), and Anna Kimball-Cook (Gr 12).  Our Teacher of the Month is Mrs. Dyson, & Staff Member of the Month is Mrs. Selinka. 

As the proud Principal of Londonderry High School, it pleases me greatly to announce the Top Ten academicians in the Class of 2017.  The following seniors have earned cumulative weighted grade point averages of 4.4 or higher after seven calculated semesters of schooling. Congrats to: Isabella Ziolek (10th Honors), Brian Frechette (9th Honors), Christopher Zaino (8th Honors), Alexa Mayo (7th Honors), Elise Goodspeed (6th Honors), Declan Hotter (5th Honors), Samantha Mauceri (4th Honors), Lindsey Guenther (3rd Honors), Kiersten Hoglund (Salutatorian), and Alena Pursel (Valedictorian).  These students will be honored at a Top Ten Dinner, Baccalaureate awards ceremony, and recognized at graduation.  We also wish to congratulate Chris Zaino on being named a National Merit Finalist! 

The Athletic Leadership Council selected its newest members who attended the NHIAA State Leadership Conference.  Congratulations to Lauren Misiaszek, Maeve McPhail, Sarah Fawcett, Luke Cava, Jake Dionne, Ricky Perry, Emmy Dumaresq, Anthony Federico, and returners Cole Britting, and Catie Derhak.  They will proudly represent LHS athletics as next year’s council.  Congratulations to Julia Fitzgibbons who was selected to All-Eastern and will participate in the music festival in Atlantic City, NJ!  She has been an All-State musician all four years at LHS!

Our juniors will take the SAT Exam on Wednesday, April 5th.  The Drama Club will perform Thoroughly Modern Millie April 6 – 8 at the Derry Opera House.  The Futures Lab will host a Hospitality and Event Planning Career Breakfast on April 12th.  Academically, third quarter grades will be posted by Thursday, April 13th.  Mr. LHS is on the 20th at 7:30 pm in the gym, Spring Pep Rally is on the 21st, and our April Vacation runs from the 24th – 28th.  For a complete list of activities please visit our school calendar and sports website.  Have a wonderful spring break!
