WELCOME TO LONDONDERRY HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 2020!
The new school year is off to a great start and our 9th graders are finding their way around and feeling at home and comfortable in this new place. A place where they will continue to mature and be " learners" for the next four years. It's been a busy time. Seeing so many familiar faces from years past, has been exciting and at the same time, a reminder that it truly seems like just yesterday these young adults departed from LMS to begin a new chapter at LHS. For some, graduation is around the corner. Time has a way of fleeting . Our hope is that in four years, our 9th graders will feel prepared and ready for that next chapter.
This year, I will be case managing 9th graders and will have an opportunity to check in with them daily during Study Lab. This is a time to offer assistance, direction, and maybe just a listening ear.
I am also available after school most days. I can best be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 432-6941 x2777. I can also be reached at x 2355 from 9:00 - 10:30. If there is a serious question or concern, please call the Special Education Office at x 2101.
In keeping with the District's objectives and tenets from the movie "The Martian" ; Perseverance, Being A Martian, The Power of Yet, and Growth
Mindset, I would like to conclude with a favorite line from the movie by Mark Watney, with hopes that together with the knowledge we impart, our young adults may never forget an important, basic instinct.
"Every human being has a basic instinct: to help each other out. If a
hiker gets lost in the mountains, people will coordinate a search. If a train
crashes, people will line up to give blood. If an earthquake levels a city,
people all over the world will send emergency supplies. This is so
fundamentally human that it's found in every culture without exception."
