Dear Parents/Guardians:

Thank you for sharing the positive feedback regarding Parent Night.  It was a great opportunity to introduce our outstanding teaching and administrative staff, along with showcasing our College & Career Ready Goal, assessment suite and Futures Lab.  The LHS College Fair will be held Thursday, September 28th from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm in our gym.  Over 100 college and career representatives will be in attendance. Our standardized testing will be held on October 11th.  The morning will be devoted to the PSAT exams for all freshmen, sophomores, and juniors.  Upon completion of the exam, students will be released home to work on CCR goals and activities. Our seniors may attend a college visit, work on college essays or the Common Application on this day. The following websites for College & Career exploration may be helpful to your student:

We had a spirited pep rally heading into Mack Plaque; our Homecoming against rival Pinkerton Academy.  A video of the pep rally will run on our education channel 21, and on our high school YouTube channel on our website.  DVD copies of that pep rally are also available in the main office.  I was very proud of our students not only during the pep rally, but also in their show of support for our school throughout the entire week.  Hundreds of fans enjoyed exciting games on the PA campus, and our student-body was fantastic! Many also donated cans or money to the New Hampshire Tackles Hunger event.

The monthly calendar will keep you apprised of all the events and co-curricular / extra-curricular activities taking place.  Highlights for October include the Aviation Career Breakfast 10/4, Drama Club’s Haunted Woods 10/17 – 10/19 from 6:00 - 8:30 pm, World History Renaissance Fair on Oct. 27th, and the Prism Concerts which will be held October 28th and 29th in the LHS cafeteria. Finally, Quarter 1 grades close on Oct. 31st.

We continue to recognize a Teacher & Students of the Month who best exemplify what we value through our Mission Statement and Expectations.  September selections include Madison Walden (Frosh), Grace Chicko (Soph), Ian Goodspeed (Jr), Sarah Fawcett (Sr), Mrs. Goulet (Teacher), and Mrs. Hutchins (Staff).  Over 1.6 million students took the PSAT Exam, and the 50,000 highest scores were honored. Londonderry High School is proud to announce that we have six students being awarded.  Congratulations to Bethany Costello for achieving Semi-Finalist status and to Jeffrey Cieslikowski, Nicholas Demers, Meghan McCudden, Heather Ricker, and Connor Toth who are Commended Students.  We’re very proud of their academic achievement!

In closing, you will soon receive notification on how to access electronic progress reports which will be available on Thursday, October, 5th.  Enjoy the fall foliage!

Sincerely,

Jason Parent
