Good morning. No matter where you are spending the time, I hope you’re having a nice vacation with your families.

Mathalon Congrats:

Congratulations to Ben Suranyi, Ben Wolpin, Georgia Eckhardt, and Haukur Karlsson for being selected to represent our region at the MathCounts State Finals next Saturday (3/7). All four of them placed 13th or better (out of 65) for our region!


Our Math Team made up some good ground at their last meet by placing second. They are now just one point out of second and three out of first. It’s anyone’s “game” now! Congrats to our mathletes for working hard and taking time to represent our school.

Message from our School Nurse:

From our school nurse, Beth Haddock: When your child receives immunizations at their yearly well-child visit, please forward a copy of their updated record to the school. This is especially important for 6th graders as the school needs documentation of the Tdap Booster. This vaccine is a NH state requirement before entry into the 7th grade. Thank you for your help in this.

Softball News:

The middle school softball clinics are beginning once again. They will be held out at the Gilmanton School from 11:00-1:00 on March 7, 14 and 21.

Chess Club Update:

Chess Club is also resuming after the break. All levels are welcome to play/learn right here in our cafeteria from 2:20-3:20 on March 4, 25 and April 1, 15, and 22. If you defeat the chess champion, you can with a $10.00 gift card of your choice!

School Social:

We had a very successful Valentine’s Day After-School Social for our 5th and 6th Graders. More than 120 students were here! Many thanks to these people for making this happen: Paul Warnick, Aaron Witham, Jack Donovan, Mike Neveln, Heidi Bourgeois, Gigi Johnson, Tracey Clayton, and Gladys Clausen. I helped eat the cookies….


Next week’s events:


Monday = School Board Meeting (6:00)

Friday = Lakes Region Junior Music Festival; Francoeur/Babcock Basketball Tournament at GMS

Saturday & Sunday = Francoeur/Babcock Basketball Tournament


Take care,


Peter
