Dear Parents / Guardians:

Students received their first semester report cards on Thursday, February 1st, 2018 in their C Period classes.  On your child’s report card, you will see the grade earned and credit awarded.  Guidance counselors have been conducting course orientations with students, going through the Program of Studies in classrooms.  Please review course selections at  http://lhs.londonderry.org/  by clicking on the “Academics” tab, where you will find the Program of Studies link.  We encourage you to work with your child and have them consult their teachers and guidance counselors in choosing a challenging academic schedule while pursuing electives in areas of interest.  For example, our Microbiology / Biomedical Science and Technology lab-based course is a dual credit double block class where our students can earn high school and college credits, and learn more about career opportunities that exist in these fields.  This and other interesting electives are featured in the Lancer Spirit Online by accessing: https://www.lancerspiritonline.com/5763/showcase/spotlight-on-electives-build-your-perfect-schedule-with-these-must-have-classes/   Registration for 2018 – 2019 courses are completely online for all classes, and selections begin Monday, Feb 5th and are due by Friday, February 16th. 

There were some wonderful highlights in January, and February promises to be filled with a variety of community events.  Led once again by Mr. Juster, we are very proud of our 177 students & staff who participated in the Pantene Beautiful Lengths hair donation by cutting at least eight inches of their hair to help cancer patients have access to real hair wigs. A complete list of donors will be added on a tab to the left of the Principal’s Page.

We are proud of our 29 Lancers who will take the Penguin Plunge Feb. 3rd.  Led by Mr. Rosa and Mrs. Donovan, they raised $5,650 with proceeds going to Special Olympics.  We are also happy to celebrate the NH Jazz All-State Musical Festival.  Performing at Pinkerton on Feb. 4th are Danika Dixon, Trevor Senecal, and Aaron Kenison. Congratulations!

Our Boys & Girls Indoor Track Teams will compete in the Div. I meet on Sunday, Feb. 4th at Dartmouth. February 5th – 9th is National School Counseling Week and we’d like to thank our Counseling staff for all that they do!  The School District Deliberative Session will be held on Friday, Feb. 9th at 7:00 pm.  NHS will provide babysitting for the event until 10:00 pm.  Gymnastics will be competing in their Div. I competition on Feb. 10th at UNH, while the Swim Team will compete in their Division I Meet on Feb. 10th at UNH. The Ski teams will compete on Feb. 12th & 13th at Gunstock.  The Div. I Wrestling meet will be held Feb. 17th at Londonderry High School.  Finally, Night of Jazz will take place on Feb. 21st at 7:00 pm.  School vacation is the week of February 26th.  There are also winter athletic games hosted by LHS nearly every night this month.  Go Lancers!   

In closing, we’re proud to recognize our Students and Staff Members of the Month: Erica Waters (Gr. 9), Colleen Furlong (Gr. 10), Ethan Nicholson (Gr. 11), Abigail Whitcomb (Gr. 12), Mrs. Giguere (Teacher), & Mrs. Butler (Staff).  Enjoy your February Vacation!
