Dear Parents / Guardians:

We can’t believe a quarter of the school year is already completed.  There have been a lot of exciting things going on at LHS over the fall as we wrap up the end of our first marking period (Oct. 31st) and now enter the month of November.  Our students have already received some well deserved recognition for their excellence.  Two journalists from the Lancer Spirit were nationally recognized for their work.  Kara Gil and Tim Gore received Gold Circle Awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association for their submissions.  We had three musicians accepted to the NH Jazz All State Music Festival!  They are Trevor Senecal (Jazz Band - Trumpet), Dylan Solano (Jazz Choir - Drum), and Carleigh McRitchie (Jazz Choir – Soprano Voice).  The Prism Concert led by Serge Beaulieu, Danielle Loschiavo, and Joseph Mundy showcased hundreds of talented musicians and was a wonderful way to end the month of October.  We also enjoyed the World History Renaissance Fair led by Mrs. Marzik, Mrs. Donovan, Ms. Gibson, and Mr. Willis, who all worked with their freshman students to put on this amazing event. All of our fall athletic teams made the playoffs, and we wish to congratulate our Girls Soccer team who finished as the #1 seed in the Div I tournament and are in the Final Four, and Boys Football who are the Conference Champions and will be a # 1 seed in the South / East bracket.  Finally, we also wish the best of luck to Unified Soccer and Spirit who are continuing their playoff paths.

Congratulations to our October Students of the Month: Harry Feig (Sr.), Liam McIntyre (Jr.), Jessica Chadwick (So.), and Laura Bowen (Fr.).  Our Teacher of the Month is Lindsey Currier and Staff Member of the Month is Beth Wehner.  Also, congratulations to Mrs. Lawson and Mr. Burgess who designed curriculum guides to accompany Amazon Aid Foundation’s documentary River of Gold

All club photos will be taken for the Yearbook on November, 5th in room 221.  Students should contact their club advisor for the specific time their club photo will be taken.  First Quarter report cards will be issued on Nov. 7th.  The Veteran’s Day Breakfast put on by Pay It Forward will be held Nov. 10th. Many thanks to the Londonderry School Community for donating gift baskets to our local Veterans!  The Dodgeball Tournament will begin Nov. 13th and our annual Powder Puff football game will be held on the 15th.  The annual Craft Fair will take place at LHS on Nov. 17th, and PTSO is once again hosting the annual Floral Workshop on Sunday, Nov. 18th in the LHS cafeteria at 2:00 pm. Please click the “Floral Workshop” attachment for more information and to register.

November tends to be a shorter month in our school calendar.  There is no school on Nov. 6th (Elections), Nov.12th (Veterans Day), Nov. 16th (Parent Conferences), and Nov. 21st – 23rd  (Thanksgiving Break).  During this month we’re asking for your help in reminding students to wear their ID’s each school day.  The New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) will issue a student, parent, and staff survey as part of the reaccreditation process for Londonderry High School. The survey will be sent to you soon and takes approximately twenty minutes to complete.  Parent Conference Day at the high school is designed for parents to visit and meet with their child’s teachers as needed.  Please review the Parent Conference Day attachment which outlines our protocol for the day.

Sincerely,

Jason Parent
