Good afternoon.  That snow yesterday wasn’t fun to move around, was it?  Hopefully, we’ll miss next week’s storm(s) and get out of school before Old Home Day…..

I have attached three documents to this email:

  • Gilford’s 1st  Annual Flapjack Breakfast (this is open to current 4th and 5th graders)

  • Gilford Youth Softball information regarding clinics and registration

  • Gilford Cal Ripken Baseball registration

If your child is interesting in playing a spring sport here at school, they must first register at the FamilyID website regardless if they played a sport previously this year.  Also, all athletes will need to take the IMPACT Concussion test. This will happen during the school day during the week of March 19.  Also, there will be a parents meeting for spring athletes here at the middle school cafeteria on Monday, March 19 at 6:00.

Two weeks ago, 7 of our talented theatre students traveled to New York City to audition fo the “Itheatrics Summer Theatre Academy.”  This is a very exclusive summer program. More than 650 students from around the country auditioned for 200 spots; as well as 50 “waitlisted” spots.

The purpose of the program is to work on and develop new adaptations of current and past Broadway shows suitable for middle school performers.  Our kids will work on this material before any school gets to perform it on stage. We are very proud of their hard work. And it has paid off as all 7 students were either chosen or waitlisted.  Kudos to Anna Cook, Brenna O’Connor, Maria Uicker, Sam Leggett, Heather McKenzie, Sydney Eastman, and Avery Hennig.

Next Wednesday from 2:30-3:30 in our cafeteria, we will hold our first ever Cribbage Tournament.  This is open to students, teachers, and even parents who want to play Cribbage or learn how to play.  We’ll even have some snacks! Hope some of you can make it!

Other than Cribbage, two important dates for next week are the Town Elections at the Gilford Youth Center (7:00am-7:00pm) and the end of the second trimester next Friday.

Thank you and have a nice weekend and remember to spring those clocks forward one hour on Sunday!
