Dear Parents,

I had the true honor today to introduce Chief Sklut to the NH School Administrator’s Association as the Southwestern NH Champion for Children. This was a wonderful event and it was truly enlightening to hear all of the good that is happening in NH thanks to the efforts of some truly dedicated folks.

I trust that you heard about our assembly with Monte Selby yesterday. If not, I have to say it was a wonderful time had by all. Mr. Selby shared some of his previous songs he created with other schools as well as some he wrote for his CDs. When he moved on to the songs written by our students, it was a great experience. Our students created some wonderful metaphors and imagery that really translated well into song. It was clear to me the students enjoyed the assembly and the 2017 DES Artist in Residence program was successful. If you are interested in purchasing a CD from the grammy award winning Monte Selby, you can download the order form here.

The PTO Reading Challenge continues for the next 2 weeks. The Reading Slip can be accessed here.

I wanted to remind all of you about our school wide Spring Concert on Thursday, May 18th at 6:00. I hope you all have a great weekend and I look forward to seeing as many of you as are able on the 18th. I also wanted to wish all the mothers who are receiving this email a Happy Mother's Day on Sunday. It is well deserved.

Owen Harrington
