Hello Parents & Guardians,   

This is the time when the schedule in the school really seems to fly, so keep an eye out on the events moving forward, particularly as it applies to AP testing, end of the year activities and graduation. Congratulations are in order to Julia Martinage whose Alvirne team came in first in NH and she placed fourth in a recent state veterinarian science competition. Julia will have a chance to attend the National competition with her teammates in Louisville, KY in October. 

A tip of the cap to Dennis Perreault who has been offered a summer teaching position in the prestigious St. Paul’s Summer Program.  A final reminder that the Booster Club is sponsoring a fundraiser to benefit CHS athletic teams, April 23 from 10AM – 1 PM @ Merrimac Ten Pin for $20.00 per person for 3 hrs including shoe rental.  Tickets are available at Town Hall or from Booster Club Members. 

Work on the Master Schedule is continuing, and we hope to have student schedules done before school ends.  Next week is Spring Break, so enjoy the time off from school with your children.  Finally, a reminder that CHS Administration will meet with parents on Wednesday morning from 7:00-7:30 in the Library for coffee and conversation. 

Have a great week everyone!

Hello Parents & Guardians,   

Just a heads up that the Booster Club is sponsoring a Bowling Fundraiser on Sunday, April 23 from 10AM – 1 PM @ Merrimac Ten Pin, 698 Daniel Webster Hwy in Merrimack. The cost is $20.00 per person for 3 hrs & includes shoe rentalTickets are available at Town Hall or through any Booster Club Member. Tuesday was a much lighter election turnout, so things were quieter throughout CHS. I am appreciative of that. 

Although we are early in the process, I really appreciate Jodi Callinan and Andrea Stern’s commitment on the early phases of our master scheduling process. I am psyched about the early progress! Thanks to Eliot Bamford for his willingness to present on Google R &W on Tuesday. The SAT exams for Juniors went well on Wednesday. 

Just a reminder that Quarter 3 ended last Friday, so eligibility reports will occur this Wednesday. Thanks to all who attended the past two School Board meetings. There was a great deal of passion and logic demonstrated throughout supporting CHS which resulted in retaining a full-time music position in the District. Finally, the CHS administration has nominated Nate Cooper for the VFW Loyalty Award. Thanks to Nate for all his hard work on behalf of students and the community. 

Have a great week everyone!

Hello Parents & Guardians,

Thanks to all who supported the music and French positions at Wednesday’s School Board meeting.  In particular, our students who addressed the Board were very impressive in their impassioned, mature, and reasoned statements.  Congratulations to senior Dylan Coates for his gold medal for Diesel Technology at Skills USA.  I neglected to mention Cleo Schultz was elected a member of the Senate and Matt True was elected Chair of House Ways & Means at Youth & Government along with Pat Rochford as House Speaker. 

 Congrats to the Jazz Ensemble students and Jill Pennington for their hard work and their performance this week.  Another congratulations goes out to the CHS recycling students for their 2016 Recycle Bowl State Recycling Championship and their Energy Reduction recognition in the Green Up New England Challenge.  Students who are at junior status are taking the statewide SAT assessment on Wednesday.  They will be released following the completion of the testing process.  For those interested the Athletics Booster club will be meeting tonight at 7:00 in the Library.  Have a good week, everyone.

Hello Parents & Guardians,       

First and foremost, a hearty congratulations goes out to CHS faculty member, Dennis Perreault, who is the 2017 NH Council for the Social Studies Teacher of the Year! On a community note with respect to the recent voting, I want to thank the Litchfield community for supporting the schools in last week’s elections. And speaking of last week, our CHS Math Team with Advisors Diane Angelini and Shaun Hastings took 6th out of 12 teams in their Math Competition at Plymouth State.   

Mark Lawrence Studios, our yearbook photographer, met with juniors in Advisory this past Wednesday to begin informing them about Senior Pictures and scheduling photo sitting appointments. More information will be forthcoming through regular mail and email from CHS and from Mark Lawrence about that process. 

Also this past week we had a “Lock Down” emergency exercise, and all went smoothly with minor exceptions, and I want to thank Litchfield PD Officer Gary Gott for assisting and providing some observations and suggestions to the Administrative Team. I did not wear my pajamas to school, but students did Friday as last week was SADD’s Sleep Awareness Week informing students about healthy sleep habits.  

Looking ahead, on Wednesday CHS students will be taking the Youth Risk Behavior Survey in an extended Advisory. There will be a PTO meeting on Thursday, March 30 in the CHS Library at 6:30 pm.  Finally, the CHS Athletics Booster Club rescheduled their postponed fundraiser, and it will be held April 5 at Margaritas Mexican Restaurant in Nashua.  20% of pre-taxed food and beverage sales will support CHS athletics.  And speaking of the Booster Club, they put out a call for parent volunteers to assume leadership for next year if you have some free time to assist.  

Have a great week everyone!

Hello Parents & Guardians,  

With the heavy snows playing havoc on our local elections, the teacher workshop day, and March’s PTO meeting, I freely admit I am tired of winter. Keep in mind town elections are going to be held at CHS from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm on Tuesday, we will have school, and there will be a monitor at the hallway doors ensuring that voting and the school day proceed uninterrupted. 

Also, the winter Sports Awards will be Thursday evening in the CHS Auditorium after being postponed from last week.  Speaking of last week, congratulations to Jill, Phil, and all the District music teachers on two entertaining concerts this past week.  I thoroughly enjoyed all the student performances, and it was fun to be included with the other District administrators.  

Congratulations are due to Dala Johnson on being a finalist for the 2017 Fernald Prevost Mathematics Award. We had a number of our students attend the NHIAA Leadership conference on Thursday and Friday last week, and also Patrick Rochford was voted Speaker of the House at this past weekend’s Youth & Government conference. Thanks to advisor, Nate Cooper, for his work with the students in Concord. Finally, I want to recognize and thanks Computer Technology teacher Shawn McDonough and his wife Cathy for their terrific St. Patty’s Day meal on Friday.   

Have a great week everyone!

Hello Parents & Guardians, 

It is clearly still winter in New Hampshire still as we continue to hear about the storm coming in Tuesday, although your children are not scheduled to be here at CHS.  As of this writing, elections are still occurring on Tuesday at CHS though.  It would be great if the weather does not prevent people from getting to the polls.  We did have a PTO meeting scheduled for Tuesday evening, however, that meeting is now canceled. 

Here at CHS we have officially begun the transition for 8th grade students as they have chosen classes and we had a well-attended 8th Grade Parent Orientation last week.  If you do happen to visit CHS, please look above the entry at the school name sign that was recently installed.  It looks great up there.  Thanks to the Class of 2016, Barlo Signs, and the School Board for seeing that installation through.  If you are looking for some musical entertainment, the School District concerts are being held at CHS on Wednesday and Thursday at 6:30 pm.  

Have a great week everyone!

Hello Parents & Guardians, 

We are hoping all had a nice winter break, and this time between February and April break tends to be a busy time.  We have had our first graduation planning meeting, but keep in mind setting a final date is still up in the air due to the numerous snow days and potential for more.  As soon as a final date is set, we will quickly forward that along to the community.  

Speaking of graduation, congratulations to the following students as we recognize Valedictorian Madison Taylor, Salutatorian Jess Manning, and others of the “top ten” of Class of 2017, Chris Woods, Hannah Cote, Carolyn Spaulding, Maddison Reczko, Ella Hogan, Jake Scopelites, Samantha Molinari, & Harrison Vedrani.  We do have an athletics Booster’s Club meeting tonight at CHS in the library, 8th Grade Parent Night is March 7 at 6:30pm, and the administration will be here to meet with parents from 7:30-8:30 in the library after that.  Looking ahead to next week, don’t forget our local elections will be held on March 14 (also a Teacher Workshop Day, so no school for students).   

Have a good week!

Bill Lonergan, Principal

Hello Parents & Guardians,         

Hello, and I bring news from the snowy Northeast, As of this writing, it appears we will be making it through a day of school for only the second day in the last six school days.  

Speaking of those challenges, we have missed on several opportunities to inform students or parents of our programs.  One of concern to parents of sophomores was the opportunity for them to meet during the school day with Pinkerton and Alvirne CTE representatives about their programs. Due to tight course selection constraints, we do not have time to fit these in. Students do have the opportunity to pick up information from the Counseling Office, so please advise your children to head there if they have interest in these valuable programs.  

So all of you are aware, our students will be selecting courses for 2017-18 over the next few weeks in our extended advisories.  Juniors will be doing their course selections tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb 15.  On a different note, we just announced our Student of the Month for February, and it is senior Harrison Vedrani, and our Star of the Month is Liberty Pelletier. Congratulations to both of them.  One reminder before I close that the PTO will be meeting this evening, February 14, at 6:30 in the CHS Library.   

Have a great week everyone!  

Bill Lonergan, Principal.

Hello Parents & Guardians,       

First of all, congratulations to Coach Renee and her Spirit Team for raising their 2016 State Division III title banner to the rafters of the Cougar Den last week. On a separate note about last week, there was terrific support for the schools at Saturday's Deliberative Session. My hope is that we have a strong show of support to vote at the budget elections in March. 

Today AD Mills and I are going to Concord to celebrate our Scholar Athletes at CHS. We will be bringing 19 of our top student/athletes for recognition at that event. Also three events of note for this week: there is an Athletics Booster Club meeting at the school today in the library at 6:00 pm, and on Wednesday, juniors will be completing their course selections for next year in their Advisories. On that same date, freshmen class elections will be held as well.   

Have a great week everyone!  

Bill Lonergan, Principal.

Hello Parents & Guardians,     

Things are busy at CHS this week, but first I would like to thank Payton Musco, Teddy Douris, Harrison Vedrani, and Luke Hogan for going to GMS last week to speak to 4th graders about healthy peer relationships.  Nice job guys!   

Also if you were not aware, our last year’s wrestling team had its 2016 championship banner hoisted to the rafters in the Cougar’s Den last Friday. Don’t forget on Wednesday that we have a 2 hour delay for teacher professional development as we will continue working on our NEASC Self-Study process. On Saturday two events are occurring. First, the Penguin Plunge is occurring at Hampton Beach supporting the Special Olympics and a number of our students and staff will participate.  While I would love to bathe in the 40 degree Atlantic Ocean in early February, I have an alternative obligation at the School Deliberative Session from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm in the CHS auditorium, and I would love to have supporters of CHS there advocating for the schools.  Finally, just a reminder that if you have a Twitter account, you can follow the CHS administration (@wlonerganchs, @CHScounselor17, or @mperezCHS) as we tweet out about school events and activities..  

Have a great week everyone!  

Bill Lonergan, Principal.

Hello Parents & Guardians,

Students are taking semester 1 exams at this week at CHS. The schedule and practices are on the front page of the CHS website http://www.litchfieldsd.org/campbellhighschool_home.aspx
It appears some wintry weather is coming, so please be alert to possible changes to the exam schedule. I neglected to give a shout out to a locally-owned company, McNulty Catering, who provided full holiday meals to four of our CHS students’ families over break.

Speaking of locally-owned, done forget that Valentino’s Restaurant is supporting us on January 25th by donating 15% of your total check back to CHS. You must provide them the coupon for CHS to benefit. If you need another copy, please contact the main office at CHS at 546-0300 for help.

A number of our staff, myself included, participated in Mrs. Gnaegy’s “Cupcake Wars” last Friday. It was a superb demonstration by her students of their baking skills. A quick congratulations is in order to student-athlete Dayton Chandonnet who won his 100th wrestling match this past week. Two brief reminders: Our Art Portfolio Night was rescheduled to Jan 18 @ 6:00 pm in the CHS Library. Please come and check out the student displays.

Also, teachers will be finalizing grades in Infinite Campus as we move through exams, and the Parent Portal will be available on January 26 at 7:00 am to view grades.

Have a great week everyone.

Hello Parents & Guardians,

We had an active week this past week at CHS. Our students did a nice job performing “Check, please!” about the perils of blind-dates. Our recycling course received a grant to buy an automated wire-stripping machine, our RAD PE course completed their physical attack simulation for students, NHS ran a blood drive with the Red Cross, and Denise Freeman, art teacher, was recipient of our monthly teacher-sponsored, Golden Bell Teach of the Month Award.

Kudos to Dennis for his work to get a grant to support the CHS recycling program. Nice job to all of our staff involved. Coming up this week, on Tuesday there is a PTO meeting at CHS at 6:30 pm, on Wednesday morning, we are sponsoring a coffee with the admin at 7:00 am in the library (topics to be sent out later in a separate Blackboard announcement), and on Wednesday, our Art Portfolio students will be presenting their art portfolios at 6:00pm in the library. Also on Wednesday at 6pm, the school board will review our Program of Studies for the 17-18 school year. Finally, congratulations to Madison Reczko for receiving a $1,000 Comcast Scholarship.

Have a great week everyone.

Hello Parents & Guardians,
Happy 2017 to all as we move toward closing out the first semester at CHS in the next few weeks. I would like to say thank you to the entire CHS staff, students, and families as well as the larger Litchfield community for all the support through the holiday break. I took several days off last week to take care of some family concerns, and it is good to be back in school and working with students and staff.
Regards,
Bill Lonergan, Principal

Hello Parents & Guardians,

And here we are back to a full week here at CHS with three more full ones to follow before our next break. On a note of Thanksgiving, I want to express a quick thanks to our counseling staff, Jodi, Michelle, Jeff & Bill for their hard work in bringing in 36 speakers for career day on the 22nd, and thanks to all who presented to our students.

Hello, while last week was again shortened, we were still very active at CHS. Our PTO was helping out greatly feeding teachers during Parent Teacher Conferences. We are so appreciative of that support. Speaking of PTC’s, many of our teachers had full schedules last Thursday afternoon and Friday. We appreciate your investment and collaboration supporting your children at CHS.
