preparing for their upcoming Shakespearean production. Several of the students added stage construction to the list of extended learning experiences they have gained under the direction of teacher and director George Kendall. With the help of parents and staff, the students framed, constructed, and painted an elevated outdoor stage structure within the Windham High School football field over the course of several weekends. While the outdoor stage lends an authentically Shakespeare theatre effect, the production takes a decidedly entertaining multi-cultural
turn. West meets East as a talented

by Barbara O’Brien Following a number of calls from area residents, all questioning the clear-cutting of trees that’s been taking place on property located on Route 111 (Indian River Road), Community Development Director Laura Scott informed Windham Selectmen on May 2 that the property owners do have a valid permit to cut down the trees along that stretch.
According to Scott, the tree cutting
was done by the landowner, which is RK Associates of Dedham, MA. RK Associates did file intent to cut with Windham Tax Assessor Rex Norman and the cutting of the trees was, therefore, permitted. However, RK Associates does not
have a New Hampshire Department of Transportation (DOT) driveway permit for the access road that was cut into the property. Route 111 is a state-owned road and, as such, any curb cuts along that roadway must be pre-approved by the DOT. Scott did contact the Department
of Transportation to report the activity going on at the site and it was subsequently shut down. No plans have yet been submitted to either the State DOT or town officials, Scott said.
Selectmen said that the property in question is located between Shaw’s Supermarket and the Village Green Shopping Center. State officials are currently investigating the issue.

their campaign, a group of Windham Destination Imagination
students, currently enrolled at Windham Center School, attended the May 3 School Board meeting. Students explained that Destination Imagination promotes “challenging, out-of-the box thinking.” This year, Windham’s project involves time travel and encompasses an eight-minute presentation called “Spinning a Tale.” Students told
School Board members that
Destination Imagination attracts those with a wide range of personalities and abilities. Students said they are inspired by what is being learned in school, and then take the knowledge a step or two further. The emphasis is on teamwork, with no adult assistance. Presentations include musical, visual, and literary components, as well as improvisation. Students in grades two through the university level are eligible for team participation. Annually, individual teams use performance,
art, technology, and real-world relevance as they tackle one of five Team Challenges. Each year’s “Team Challenge Solution” takes approximately three to six months to develop and finalize. The time commitment during this period is typically one or two meetings per week. During actual competition, each team will also be asked to solve an Instant Challenge; one that is either performance-based, task-based, or a combination of the two. A performance-based challenge involves the team ‘performing’ or acting out a solution for a group of appraisers. A task-based challenge involves the team using materials to move, build, change, or protect specific objects. “This is an amazing program,” School Board member Michelle Farrell said, commenting on the significant amount of time and effort it takes to put each performance together. School Board members wished the students the best of luck in both their fundraising and final competition. Although several fundraisers have been
held by members of Destination Imagination, donations are still needed to help offset the cost of the upcoming trip. Donations can be sent to Windham Destination Imagination, Windham Center School, 2 Lowell Road, Windham, NH 03087. For additional information, contact Windham Center School at 432-7312.
