Good morning.  I hope that this email finds you and your families well.  Overall, the students have been pretty awesome these past couple of weeks; this March to April vacation stretch can be a tough one on them (and us).  Kudos to you folks and my pretty awesome staff for helping the kiddos stay focused on school.

There is still time to order yourself or your child some cool Gilford Schools gear and help support the PTA at the same time!  Just visit the Gilford Store website to order some cool SWAG!

Our annual DARE culminating event for 5th graders will take place next Thursday at 6:00 in the high school auditorium.  Parents should drop off students in our cafeteria anytime between 5:15 and 5:45. Many thanks to Mr. Donovan and SRO O’Neill for taking the time to teach our students very valuable lessons on how to better make good decisions in their lives.

Please follow this link to Laconia High School’s HUOT Center and their summer program offerings.  They have two offerings this year for middle schoolers:  “Girls Technology Camp” from June 27-29 and “Arts and Technology Camp” from July 9-13.  Please visit the website for more information and on how to register.

Next Wednesday is our second 5th/6th grade after school social.  This is free to students and will run from 2:30-4:00. This is put on by our Student Council with great help from our volunteer steering committee.  They’ll be fun activities and treats for the students to enjoy!

Please remember that the PTA sponsored after school French program is currently running.  If you have signed up and have yet to attend; they’ll be at it again next Tuesday. Hope to see you there.  Merci!

I have attached to this email, the Gilford Parks and Rec newsletter for you to check out the wonderful offerings Herb Greene and his crew provide for the community.

I have also attached two flyers regarding our summer theatre camp program.  One for those interested in being part of the tech crew and the other for our wanna be thespians!

Thank you and have a wonderful weekend.


P.s.  How about those Red Sox?!
