Dear Parents / Guardians:
Londonderry High School wishes everyone a very Happy New Year! I hope the holiday break allowed you to spend some quality time with your family and friends. Our students and staff continue to embrace the spirit of giving, which is what the holiday season is all about. Many of our school organizations provided significant contributions over the holidays, including our Student Council who ran a canned food drive where over 3,000 cans and a check for $1,515 went to St. Jude’s Food Pantry. Our staff participated in our annual “Adopt an Angel” event, purchasing presents for less fortunate families in this community, and the Class of 2017 donated $290 to Harbor Homes. One of the most altruistic gestures our students and staff will take part in is the Pantene Beautiful Lengths hair donation to make wigs for cancer patients across the country. Over 160 “Angels” will be cutting eight inches or more of their hair at our Day of Giving assembly on January 6th. These gestures of giving are frequently modeled within our school community.
Our December Students, Staff Member, and Teacher of the Month are: Kerry Daley (Fr.), Morgan Torre (So.), Gabriel Ortiz (Jr.), Billy Croteau (Sr.), Lori Painter (Staff), and Serge Beaulieu (Teacher). Lauren Ferraro, Christopher Stanley, and Madison Martin will represent LHS in the NCTE Achievement Awards in Writing, and Ashley Lynch is our 2016 – 2017 Hugh O’Brian Youth Foundation (HOBY) Award winner. The monthly calendar is filled with exciting school events, including our assembly (Jan 6th), Adult Ed Graduation (Jan 9th), PTSO Meeting (Jan. 10th), Band & Jazz Concert (Jan 11th), Teacher Talent Show (Jan 26th) and athletics all month long. We will also have a Parent Night for the Class of 2021 on Jan. 19th, a Semi-Formal “Winter Ball” Dance on Jan. 21st, and our Unified athletes and helpers will be hosting the “Unified Snowball Dance” on Jan. 28th, with proceeds going to Special Olympics. LHS has invited other Unified high school programs from Alvirne, Hollis Brookline, Nashua North, Nashua South, Pinkerton Academy, and Concord to participate with us. Please check our school calendar for all event times and places.
