Dear Lancer Families:

There have been a lot of exciting things going on at LHS over the fall as we wrap up the end of our first marking period and now enter the month of November.  Our students have received some well-deserved recognition for their excellence.  Eight journalists from the Lancer Spirit were nationally recognized for their work.  Alana Wyatt, Ash Barnoy, Alexa Naar, Olivia Yerian, Bella Cossette, Taylor Hand, Laynie Holk, and Anna Drabik received Gold Circle Awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association for their submissions.  We had six musicians accepted to the NH Jazz All State Music Festival!  They are (Jazz Band) Anthony Iovino - Trombone, Dylan Solano - Drum, (Jazz Choir) Janiah Bergendahl and Faith Gormley – Soprano Voice, Emily Thomas – Alto Voice, and Jason Cain – Tenor Voice who received the top score in the state!  The All New England Band Festival will feature seven other talented musicians: Betsy Brown and Ash Barnoy (Bassoon), Katie LaCerda and Jessica Popoloski (Clarinet), Luke Pascarelli (Horn), Anthony Iovino (Trombone), and Dylan Solano (Percussion).  The Prism Concert led by Serge Beaulieu, Danielle Loschiavo, and Joseph Mundy showcased dozens of Lancer musicians, and was a wonderful way to end the month of October.  The New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) visited our high school during a Collaborative Conference and they were very impressed with the culture of our school, our student-body and teaching staff, and with the learning environment.  Their observations and recommendations to identify priority areas will help continue to move Londonderry High School forward as an Accredited high school. 

Many of our freshmen are participating in the World History Renaissance Fair led by Mrs. Marzik, Mrs. Donovan, Mrs. Gordon, Mr. Willis, and Mr. Berting, who all worked with their students to put on this amazing event. Our fall athletic teams are competing in the playoffs, and we wish to congratulate our Girls Soccer team who finished as the #2 seed in the Div I tournament and Boys Football who are the Conference Champions and will be a # 1 seed in the South / North bracket.  Finally, we also wish the best of luck to Unified Soccer and Spirit who are continuing their playoff paths. Congratulations to our October Students of the Month: Jasmine Brown (Sr), Jasmin Conde (Jr), Aiden Washington (So), and Jessica Stewart (Fr). Teachers of the Month are NEASC Steering Committee & Staff is Nanette Villandry. 

All club photos will be taken for the Yearbook on November, 6th in room 221.  Students should contact their club advisor for the specific time their club photo will be taken.  First Quarter report cards will be issued on Nov. 6th.  The Veteran’s Day Breakfast put on by Pay It Forward will be held Nov. 9th. Many thanks to the Londonderry School Community for donating gift baskets to our local Veterans!  The Dodgeball Tournament will begin Nov. 19th and our annual Powder Puff football game will be held on the 22nd.  The annual Craft Fair will take place at LHS on Nov. 23rd, and PTSO is once again hosting the annual Floral Workshop on Sunday, Nov. 24th in the LHS cafeteria at 1:30 pm. Please click the “Floral Workshop” attachment for more information and to register.

November tends to be a shorter month in our school calendar.  There is no school on Nov.11th (Veterans Day), Nov. 15th (Parent Conferences), and Nov. 27th – 29th (Thanksgiving Break).  During this month we’re asking for your help in reminding students to wear their ID’s each school day.  Parent Conference Evening / Day at the high school is designed for parents to visit and meet with their child’s teachers as needed.  Please review the Parent Conference Evening / Day attachment which outlines our protocol for these two days.

Sincerely,

Jason Parent
