Good afternoon.

Pumpkin CarvingMiddle Schoolers Carving Pumpkins

We are looking for some “certified” volunteers to help us out with our annual Pumpkin Carving event that will take place on October 17. We will once again do our part and support the city of Laconia’s Pumpkin Fest. Marc Bourgeois has, once again, offered to not only purchase the pumpkins for us but also deliver them the Laconia the next day. If interested in helping us out, please let me know!

Anti-Drug Advocacy Challenge

Next week students in Health class will participate in an “Anti-Drug Advocacy Challenge” by decorating 5 doors in the main lobby area that have a message of a drug-free lifestyle or an anti-drug slogan. This is a performance task that Mrs. McLane developed during this summer’s Performance Assessment Institute. Students will use information from the most recent Youth Risk Behavior Survey (and other sources) to draw conclusions from the data to help create an anti-drug door campaign.

Career Exploration

Mrs. Moynihan has some exciting plans for her 5th Grade Guidance class in the coming weeks. As part of her “career exploration” component of her class, she has invited parents to come in and share with the students about their jobs. She has quite the mix; Insurance Agent, Veterinarian, Occupational Therapist, Private Chef, Pediatrician, and an owner of a plumbing company. Thanks to you parents for volunteering to do this!
