St. Francis of Assisi Celebrates Boston Marathon! Learning in Litchfield

by Elaine F. Cutler, Ed. D., Superintendent of Schools, SAU 27, Litchfield School District

Spring has arrived in New Hampshire and it is a time for much celebrating in the school district. We are proud to announce that Mrs. Patricia Waggoner has been selected as the Champions for Children state award winner by the New Hampshire School Administrators Association (NHSAA). A Champion for Children is the epitome of volunteer service and reflects the powerful spirit of community in the State of New Hampshire. I do not believe that any greater honor could be bestowed on an individual. She is a gift to the Town of Litchfield and the guardian angel of the school district.

The Memorial Day parade begins at 10 a.m. on May 30 at Litchfield Middle School and ends at the Historical Society and Litchfield Fire Station, where a poignant ceremony occurs that reminds us all of the sacrifices that generations of Americans have made so that we can enjoy the freedom we so cherish as a country.

psychologist, has also been selected as the New Hampshire School Psychologist of the Year and will be recognized at the “Eddies” on June 4 in Manchester. The “Eddies” are the Academy Awards for school districts throughout the state, and we are honored that Ms. Beckley’s outstanding work has been recognized by her peer group. Some noteworthy community

events this month include the Lions community barbeque and blood drive this past weekend and the Memorial Day parade on May 30. If you missed the Lions Club event, mark your calendars for next year. It is a wonderful, selfless event where families can

have numerous celebratory events at each school, which the public is invited to attend. A calendar of events is available on the district website. One notable event is Senior Projects at Campbell High School on May 19 beginning at 5 p.m. After you view the work of these graduating seniors, you will be assured that the future is in good hands. Graduation will be held this

year on June 10 at 6 p.m. on the grounds of Campbell High School. This is a proud moment for the community as our young people enter college, the workforce, and military service. The last day of school is June 22 for students in K-11th grade. The Litchfield School Board takes great pride in our schools and welcomes your comments and suggestions.

First-grade class celebrates

submitted by St. Francis of Assisi School Mrs. McNeill’s first-grade class from St. Francis of Assisi

School in Litchfield learned about technology and the history of the Boston Marathon by tracking a runner’s progress in the Boston Marathon. Her name is Marie St. Jean, formerly from Londonderry, and this was her fifth marathon. Marie has three brothers who also run marathons. She also happens to be Erin Cusson’s aunt, who is a student in Mrs. McNeill’s first-grade class. The students could track her progress and her time via a

microchip that was built into her bib. The students traced their sneakers, and every time she ran 5K, a sneaker would go up to track her progress. She finished the marathon in three hours and 30 minutes, which qualifies her for the next Boston Marathon. Her sister, Gabrielle, Erin’s mother, is also a classroom volunteer

Marie St. Jean and her mother, Maureen St. Jean, right after the Marathon

and was in the class to watch the exciting tracking progress! Mrs. McNeill would like to thank Marie St. Jean for allowing the class to track her progress and time during the Boston Marathon, and for the wonderful picture of her and her mother Maureen St. Jean. Congratulations on a job well done!
