Dear Lancer Families:

Thanks again for attending our Parent Open House in September. It was a great opportunity to meet our outstanding teaching and administrative staff, along with showcasing our courses and introducing our Competency-based Education model. LHS also held an informative College Fair featuring almost 100 school representatives. Our standardized testing will be held on October 12th.  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 College & Career Ready goals and activities. Our seniors may attend a college visit, work on college essays, or complete the Common Application from home on this day. The following websites for College & Career exploration may be helpful to your student:

We celebrated a wonderful Mack Plaque weekend; our Homecoming against rival Pinkerton Academy.  Our student-body exhibited tremendous school spirit, and the LHS campus was filled with positive Lancer fans who enjoyed exciting games.  In addition, the New Hampshire Tackles Hunger event generated thousands of canned donations from our greater school community.  Progress Reports will be available in Aspen on October 6th. Picture Retakes will be held October 20th from 10:00 am – 1:30 pm in Room 221.  School ID’s are in and will be distributed to all students. As another layer of school safety, we ask that they please visibly exhibit them in some fashion with a lanyard or clip to their clothes or backpack.

Over 1.5 million students took the PSAT Exam last year, and the 50,000 highest scores were honored. Londonderry High School is proud to announce that we have six students being awarded. Congratulations to Kathryn Martin, Aaron Owre, and Michael Pitts who are National Merit Commended Students, and to Joshua Fitzpatrick, Sean O’Mara, and Dylan Wrisley who have been named National Merit Semi-Finalists. We’re very proud of their academic achievement!  We also wish to congratulate staff member Michael Bicchieri who received the 2022 New Hampshire Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance, Teacher of the Year! The LHS Community Service Club will be hosting the 2nd annual Walk to Defeat ALS on the Londonderry High School Track on Sunday, October 23rd.  We will soon be contacting our Hall of Fame Inductees and will release this distinguished list in next month’s newsletter. Enjoy the fall foliage!

Sincerely,

Jason Parent

Londonderry High School Principal
