North Salem School News
submitted by North Salem School An annual end-of-school tradition is almost here with a new twist! We will celebrate Field Day on two days this year. On Monday, June 6 (rain date of Wednesday, June 8), students will participate in activities planned for the day with the entire school divided into red, white, and blue teams. The Fifth Grade Water Balloon Toss, which typically takes place at the end of the day, will be held on Wednesday afternoon, June 8, followed by distance run awards. The distance runs were done during PE this year due to construction and loss of field space. If you are interested in volunteering for either day, please return the form that was sent home with your child. The magical world of Disney came alive last week as the North Salem
Fifth Grade Chorus gave a spectacular final performance with songs from Disney. Directed by Mrs. Minkle and entitled “Disney Spectacular,” the show featured a variety of dance performances by Davin Demmer, Cameron Gurley, and John O’Neill, as well as Sydney Barlett, Ava Bradley, Lily Chartrain, Meredith Harvey, Kylee LaCreta, Meghan Prince, Mackenzie Redmond, and Alexa Shevlin. The entire fifth-grade chorus sang wonderful renditions of some Disney classics, and soloist Morgan Prescott beautifully sang “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes,” while soloist Madison Cavanaugh also beautifully sang “Candle on the Water.” Disney characters were portrayed by Matthew Bergeron, Justin Dilendick, Damian Falcione, Nicholas Gore, Angela Naser, Deanna O’Dwyer, and Jordan Turner. Thank you to the entire Fifth Grade Chorus and Mrs. Minkle for all your hard work throughout the year and for such a grand farewell show! Get ready for Grade 5 “Move
Up Day,” which will be held on Tuesday, June 7. This is a special day when fifth-grade students visit the Woodbury School for the morning. They will have an opportunity to meet Woodbury School teachers and staff and take part in an abbreviated daily schedule. They will visit each of their classes and be introduced to their grade six teachers. As the school buses arrive at North Salem, the grade five students will remain on their bus and be brought directly to Woodbury School. If you are driving your child to school that morning, please have them at North Salem between 8:15 and 8:25 a.m. so that they can then be transported to Woodbury School on one of our remaining school buses. This is a wonderful opportunity for your child to meet their teachers and new teammates and hear all about the sixth-grade program! If you haven’t done so, please
Bloom, DMD – Master Dentist
It’s been an exciting week for
the practice. We are thrilled to announce that for the third time Dr. Bloom was voted one of New Hampshire’s top dentists for 2011 by NH Magazine (a distinction based on outstanding peer review and reputation), in print in the August issue. And, in continuing his excellence in clinical practice last week, David was in Boston, MA, attending the annual conference for the AACD (American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry). It was an energized four days, taking courses in advanced clinical methods and scouting out the latest technologies to keep the practice state-of the-art. “This is always an exciting conference. I trained in a very exciting cosmetic solution called the “no-prep“ veneer (ideal for those who want less invasive treatment) and bought a dental laser and will be offering laser dentistry in the practice,” said Dr. Bloom.

Te Northern Pass is the biggest construction project for New Hampshire in the past 30 years.
We all contribute to the culture, society, and economy that make New Hampshire a special place. And we all care when changes are proposed to the state we call home. But sometimes changes need to occur in order to solve the tough challenges facing our communities and our families.
In these uncertain economic times, Te Northern Pass will create more than 1,200 jobs for New Hampshire residents. Surveyors and lineworkers, construction workers and the industry that supports them will have money in their pockets.
Te project will generate $25 million in additional tax revenues for schools, public safety, and to help maintain the infrastructure of New Hampshire. Tat means improving libraries, keeping our snowplows moving, and fixing our roads after long winters.
It will provide us with 1,200 megawatts of clean, reliable energy. Tat’s enough to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to five million tons a year—equal to the annual emissions of 900,000 cars! And importantly, this is the affordable and sustainable energy we need to attract new businesses and support new manufacturing in our state and throughout the region.
Right now the project is exploring partnering with local telecommunications providers to expand broadband access in the North Country, an effort that would remove the single biggest obstacle to true economic development and job creation in the region.
Because at the end of the day, this discussion is not just about energy—it’s about jobs, about local tax revenues, and about a sustainable future for the communities we call home.
