6 - November 25, 2011 | Hudson - Litchfield News Tooth Bleaching

Predictable tooth

whitening is a relatively new treatment in cosmetic dentistry. The

bleaching process

actually reverses extrinsic and intrinsic discoloration of enamel caused by aging, consumption of staining substances, fluorosis, and tetracycline.

It employs the use of a custom fitted appliance that fits over the teeth to keep a neutral peroxied solution in contact with the teeth. The process requires wearing the appliance for several hours a

day for a period of several weeks depending upon the degree of the discoloration present initially and the degree of whitening desired. Maintenance bleaching may be required periodically to keep the desired tooth shade. This treatment should only be initiated under professional care with periodic monitoring during the treatment necessary. It is ideally recommended for those who have a healthy mouth. In cases where crowns, bonding, and tooth colored restorations exist it may be necessary to replace them following completion of treatment. Now the whiter, brighter smile you have always wanted can be yours.

Alvirne High School Participates in CU4 Reality Financial Fair

Student Ryan DiCicco met with Granite State Financial Counselor, Julie Brodeur to review his choices during his CU4 Reality Financial Fair.

by Doug Robinson Alvirne High School ninth grade students

participated in a CU4 Reality™ Financial Education Fair. The CU4 Reality curriculum creates a fun and interactive learning environment where students can practice specific financial management skills and learn early- on the consequences of getting in over their heads when it comes to financial matters. Prior to the fair, students will have researched and selected a career. More than 330 students will complete a monthly spending plan as they visit employers representing various categories of expenses they can expect to incur. Granite State Credit Union

and Triangle Credit Union are funded the $5,000 cost for the

fair. More than 25 employee volunteers helped

out the day of the fair. In addition, employees from Comcast, AT&T, NH Animal Rescue League, NHHLC (New Hampshire Higher Education Loan Corporation. The fair was sponsored and managed by Granite State Credit Union and Triangle Credit Union. As students visited the various

vendors stationed around the room, students made decisions about how much to allocate for items such as food, clothing, housing, transportation, insurance, savings, investments, entertainment and credit. Students will also be presented with spending temptations and have to make choices based on their own values, goals and resources.

Freshman Jameson Bloom reacts his “spin on the Wheel of Life.” Students were required to spin the wheel which offered the students the opportunity to earn unexpected money, or have an unexpected bill hit them. Jameson landed on $40 bounced check. He was required to refigure his budget to include that debt.

JROTC ‘Own’ Program and ‘Exceeds Standards’

submitted by Colonel Kevin Grady Every three years, the Headquarters

for Air Force Junior ROTC sends a representative to inspect their Junior ROTC Programs out in the field. On Thursday, November 10, it was Alvirne High School’s turn to show off their impressive Program. The day began with Cadet Group Commander Kayla McWalter presenting a Mission Briefing on the Alvirne JROTC Program’s activities, goals, and successes. The inspector, retired Air Force Colonel Wade

Williford, told her that it was one of the best briefings he’s heard from a high school cadet. Several Alvirne cadets then showed

Williford their mastery of the new computer program that JROTC uses to keep track of uniform items, computer equipment, individual cadet data, and community service event hours. The highlight of this portion of the inspection was the cadets taking Williford to compare individual uniform items with their master list. The Air Force also requires that

second year cadets memorize a 30-step drill routine and put on a demonstration for the inspector. Alvirne sophomore Carolyn Deneault flawlessly led her class through this routine with what Williford described as the best command presence he’s seen this year. The seniors joined Williford for

lunch in Checkers Restaurant at Alvirne to discuss their career plans after graduation. The inspection concluded with a Retreat Ceremony with the entire cadet group. At the ceremony, Williford presented Superior Performer Awards to junior Brandon Dumais and sophomore Carolyn Deneault for their leadership in the Program. At the end of the day, Williford

gave his findings to Alvirne Principal Bryan Lane, Director of Guidance Bill Hughen and Dean of Academics Susan Bureau. The unit received an “Exceeds Standards” rating which is the highest rating possible. Particularly noteworthy to Williford was how much

the cadets “owned” their Program, running every aspect of it with strong cadet leadership from freshmen to seniors. Every item in the Cadet Programs section of the inspection

exceeded standards, which Williford said was very rare, even in the best Programs. The Alvirne community can be justifiably proud of their Junior ROTC Program.

submitted by Campbell High School On Monday, November 21, the Campbell High School Key Club inducted 48 new and returning members for the 2011-2012 academic year in an informal ceremony in the school’s library. Principal Robert Manseau addressed the members and praised them for serving as one of the largest and most active organizations at the high school. Manseau said he was “tickled-pink” by the enthusiasm and dedication of the Key Club in the recent months. Assistant Principal Laurie Rothhaus echoed Manseau’s remarks and shared her own excitement in watching the club continue to grow and serve the Litchfield community. Since the start of the school year, the club has participated in six events in October alone and most recently honored “World Prematurity Day,” but volunteering at the March of Dimes Signature Chef Auction in Manchester and hosting a Prematurity Awareness table during Parent-Teacher conferences on November 17. Club officers, led by President Andrew Picard, honored new members by presenting them with a certificate of appreciation, official Key Club International pins (which will later be worn during graduation) and their official Key Club membership cards and handbooks. Following the official presentation, members enjoyed a delicious cake and spent time socializing and brainstorming new ideas for the
