Carol Holleran - Hudson Alvirne Students Volunteer to Rake Leaves

submitted by Alvirne High School As part of Alvirne High School’s annual Spirit Week, representatives of each class will be volunteering to come out into the community to clean up yards on November 11. The leaves should have just about all fallen by then and there will be two teams of students out in the morning, and two teams in the afternoon. We would like to focus the student efforts towards senior citizens in town or families that have a hardship in getting the fall clean up done in their yards. If you need to have leaves bagged, we ask that you please

provide the bags. If you have a place in your woods or your yard to put them, the students will be glad to take care of it. To take advantage of this service, contact Principal Bryan Lane at or by phone at 886-1260, extension 2513. Make sure you leave your address so that the volunteers can get to you. This will be the fourth year we are doing this and it has been an enjoyable experience for our students while also providing a service to our community at large.

Bring the Paraprofessionals Back to Campbell

I would like to thank the school board for their quick action in setting up the town meeting to distribute the state money back to the schools. However Campbell High School (CHS) is another story. We

have now completed four plus weeks and not all the positions have been filled for the paraprofessionals. My question to the school board, SAU 27 and the administration for CHS is what will be done with the several thousand dollars saved by not filling these positions? For example my salary would have been approximately $1,950 based on four weeks. I would hate to see this money going into a general fund when it was meant to bring the staff back to the original size. I think it is time for the voters of Litchfield and the members of

the board to ask questions about the money we voted to give them. Te money should go to the proper place it was meant for, the paraprofessionals. My final thought: When members of the administration are invited to a school board meeting, I would expect these guests not to act as a member of the school board.
