Dear Parents / Guardians:

We’re excited to begin the month of April and welcome a warm spring as we approach the end of the school year.  March featured some wonderful events.  Some brief highlights included our Reflections Yearbook being nationally recognized in the “Look Book” contest.  Our Destination Imagination high school team placed 1st in the technical challenge and 2nd in the improvisational challenge in their regional competition.  National Geographic premiered a science series called One Strange Rock which features a curriculum contribution from two of our science teachers, Patty Lawson and Rich Levergood, and three of our students, Micheal Carco, Jillian Fitzgibbons, and Ellen Kester.  The Rotary Club hosted a Speech Competition and we’re pleased to announce that Erika Tillis, Ashley Lynch and Maxwell Tsekrekas took home first, second, and third place respectively. Congratulations to Emily Johnston for advancing to the state semi-finals of the “Letters About Literature” competition.  She is among thirty applicants to be recognized out of over 500 who participated. Finally, our PVC Pirates are performing well in their first two regional robotics competitions of the season, ranking among the top teams in New England! 

The Londonderry High School Hall of Fame was resurrected in 2016 after a 20-year hiatus, and two classes have been inducted since. The 2018 Selection Committee will induct the next class on Mack Plaque weekend in September. The application process will begin April 1st and run through April 30th.
