The Puppy Palace: Havanese to Huskies

Recently celebrating her third year in business,

owner/operator Sharon Dussault continues to seek ways to improve her business, educate her customers, and above all, provide the best possible care for her puppies. When you visit her store, you will have a far different experience than most other supply or pet stores offer. The small, cozy boutique environment offers a little bit of everything, from necessity dog items such as food, bowls, and training needs to the absolute “OMG, I’ve gotta have that” treasures like jewelry, doggie couture, and color crates with coordinating cover/bed sets. Along with the retail amenities is the best part

of all—the Puppy Nursery. When she first opened in 2008, Sharon specialized in small breeds. Last year, due to overwhelming customer requests, medium and large breeds were added to the mix. Now, there really is something for everyone. When you arrive, you will be greeted by her

friendly, knowledgeable staff who are always happy to assist. The love, attention, and great care are apparent not only by the cleanliness of the entire store, but in each happy little puppy’s face. Between visits, stay updated on puppies

and products via the Website: www., and Facebook, and watch for the colorful “puppymobile” around town.

Where you'll find the cutest puppies in town!

603-952-4520 Hampstead Academy History of Hampstead Academy by Lyn Kutzelman – Founder

“It was 1977. It was my seventh year teaching Readiness/Grade One at the Atkinson Academy in Atkinson, NH. At that time, public kindergarten did not exist in New Hampshire and there was limited private kindergarten choice for parents. Encouraged by my colleagues, parents, and family, I decided to leave my secure teaching job and start my own kindergarten in Atkinson. At that time, my vision was simply to offer high-quality kindergarten for our community children. Looking back 34 years, I never imagined that vision would have become what it is today … a highly respected independent school for students in preschool through grade eight. Hampstead Academy evolved because of my dedicated staff, supportive parent community, and wonderful students.”

Lyn, 2011

Hampstead Academy was founded 34 years ago with a passion for educating the whole child. While aspects of the school have changed over the years—the growth of enrollment, the school’s physical space, the integration of technology into the curriculum, the development of competitive sport programs at the Upper School level—the school’s driving philosophy remains the same. That passion for whole- child education that called Lyn to open the doors of the Atkinson Learning Center decades ago remains evidenced today by the dedication of Hampstead Academy’s staff and programming to offer the highest caliber of academic excellence while attending not only to the cognitive developmental needs of our students, but to their social, emotional, physical, and creative developmental needs as well.

Melissa Hoffman Dance Center Melissa Hoffman opened Melissa Hoffman

Dance Center in Hudson in 1989. A member of Dance Masters of America Inc., Melissa and her staff are certified to teach. Melissa has served as the President of New England’s Chapter, as well as a National Vice President. Currently, Melissa serves on the faculty of Dance Studio Life Conference, and loves being able to help educate current and future dance educators. She is also a contributing writer for Dance Studio Life magazine. The studio has been featured on DanceLife TV, featuring the school’s highly regarded preschool program, as well as being featured in Dance Teacher Now, Dance Magazine, and Dance Life Magazine. Though truly proud of all the accomplishments of her dancers, Melissa is most proud of the community service she and the dancers have accomplished. Through their performances, over

$100,000 has been raised to grant 17 terminally ill children a wish through the NH Make-A-Wish Foundation. They also perform annually as part of Dancers Making A Difference and The Santa Fund, both raising money for those in need. In the summer of 2005, their service also expanded internationally to the country of Namibia in Africa. The studio offers all forms of dance, including

Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Acro, Pointe, and Music Theatre, as well as wellness opportunities, including Zumba, Yoga, and—new this summer— cardio hip hop and ballet conditioning for adults. Summer also brings great happenings, including Princess Camp and Boys’ Hip Hop, to name a few.

Melissa resides in Londonderry and considers her best work to date the choreography of the daily needs of her four children.
