submitted by Griffin Memorial School Mrs. Cote’s second-grade class at Griffin Memorial School in Litchfield has been studying

our world through a fun activity. They have read many stories about a character named Stanley Lambchop, in the series by Jeff Brown entitled Flat Stanley. When Stanley wakes up to find that he is half an inch thick, he is ready for some unusual experiences. For instance, Stanley travels by U.S. mail in an envelope to visit his friend in California. Our class used this story to launch a geographical exploration. We sent “Flat Stanley” to our friends and relatives in different parts of our world, requesting that they send us a postcard of their area or of a place they have visited. Our class is very much enjoying our study of geography in this meaningful way. We are keeping track of Stanley’s travels on our classroom map. So far, we have received postcards from 22 states and four countries, including Poland, Africa, England, and Germany. If anyone would like to send us a postcard of their travels, send them to: Mrs. Cote’s Class, Griffin Memorial School, 229 Charles Bancroft Highway, Litchfield, NH 03052.

“I think that this is the most amazing thing and that why I have this grin on my face,” comments Art Teacher Mrs. Freeman. “I am dealing with one of the most brilliant kids in CHS, and she says art is the hardest of all the subjects she takes. You [Jess] are a math genius and outstanding student. Art allows her that free sense of expression.”

Due to budget constraints, Jess and Mrs. Freeman will be making the trip self-funded, mostly at their own expense. Should you wish to help defray the cost of the trip, please call CHS school Principal Robert Manseau.

Garon. Caleb could have thrown in the towel when the team got off to an 0-6 start this year, but his leadership as co-captain and attitude set a fine example for the rest of the team, who fought through that adversity and made it to the final four. His parents admire his work ethic and are happy that “he is able to go out with this honor that shows that his hard work paid off.” Caleb began playing basketball in the third grade and went through the eighth grade in the Hudson Recreation program. He also played travel basketball from the fourth grade through the eighth grade with the Hudson All Stars, and played for the Hudson Memorial team in sixth through eighth grade. He would play for hours out in his driveway “just shooting around.” And all of his hard work paid off. Caleb competed in the Elks free-throw shooting contests since he was 9 years old at the suggestion of his dad, Frank. Early in his career at the age of 12, he won the Elks national free- throw shooting contest. Having won the local contest, district contest, state contest, and New England contest, he qualified for the National Championships held in Springfield, MA, and managed to beat out 11 other competitors for the title of national champion, hitting 23 of 25 free throws in the process and earning the

right to have his name on a plaque at the Basketball Hall of Fame. But basketball is not his only love when it comes to athletics. Caleb is also a standout track athlete. He currently holds the cross- country, mile, and 4x800 Alvirne records. He qualified for the New Englands last year as a junior in the 800-meter race and as a member of the 4x800 relay team.

Caleb is an excellent student, currently holding a 4.0 grade point

average and ranked eighth in his class, and is interested in attending college and studying chemical or biomedical engineering. He won’t lack for choices, as he is being sought after by Northeastern University, Boston University, University of New Hampshire (for track), and Worcester Polytechnic Institute for basketball. Caleb, the senior class president, is also very involved at school, holding membership in the National Honor Society, Spanish National Honor Society, Key Club, and Academy of Finance. Also, the honor of “Mr. AHS” was recently bestowed on Caleb in a contest held at Alvirne High School. When someone reaches the plateau of 1,000 points in a high

school career, it is customary to award the game ball that was used to that individual. As was eluded to earlier, Caleb was given the game ball from the Manchester Memorial Athletic Director.


was a well-worn basketball, which Caleb found out later was the only game ball used by that number three-seeded Memorial team all season. Many of the Memorial team members tried to get the ball back from Athletic Director Bonney before it was presented to Caleb, but that is one well-worn ball that will sit proudly in his trophy case.
