by Tom Tollefson March Madness may be a few weeks away, but the annual basketball game between the Hudson Police Department and the Hudson Memorial School Staff had some “basketball madness” of its own on February 21. The game served as a fundraiser for Memorial’s annual eighth
grade trip to Washington, DC during the first week of May. This trip includes a trip to the White House and a tour of the U.S. capital city.
“We’re having a blast. The Hudson Police and the school are
enjoying it. It’s worthwhile anytime we can help support the kids,” Memorial Assistant Principal Keith Bowen said during the halftime break. “We did this three years ago and then we took a few years off and we hope to make this an annual event.” The Hudson Police ended up edging out the Hudson Memorial
staff by a score of 64-54. “I was expecting the Colts to win, but they did their best,” said sixth grader Mason McGovern.
Despite the loss, Memorial staff fans were in full support of their teams.
“HMS brought the competition and competed like real athletes,” said eighth grader Kailee Darisse. According to Master Patrol Officer Roger Lamarche, the strategy
was to “wear out them out.” “It’s always fun. We have a great working relationship with them (Hudson Memorial staff). We have a little rivalry. We’ve played them in the past in flag football. It’s a compliment to the professional relationship we have.” The students also enjoyed the opportunity to see their teachers in action on the court instead of the classroom.

“It was cool because they don’t just teach, they play sports,” eighth grader Ryan Sevigny said. Some students were also surprised by the game. “I would never expect to see teachers have this much basketball
talent,” said eighth grader Kevin O’Halloran. Other students were amused by their teachers. “It’s entertaining and hilarious to see teachers play,” said eighth grader Desiree Fazio.

LMS Celebrates School Counseling Week
submitted by Litchfield School District Litchfield Middle School (LMS) celebrated School Counseling
Week February 6-10. This week is sponsored by the American School Counseling Association (ASCA). The focus is to bring attention to the unique contribution of professional school counselors within the U.S. school systems and to bring awareness of how students are different as a result of what school counselors do. More than 29,000 school counselors nationwide participated in the week’s activities. School counselors work together with teachers and parents to provide an educational system where students can realize their potential and set realistic goals for themselves. Professional school counselors are certified, experienced educators, and have a master’s degree in guidance and counseling. They are an integral part of the total educational program. Last week, Litchfield Middle School celebrated by having morning announcements about character, contributing to the Appreciation bulletin board, and the staff enjoyed a continental breakfast put together by school counselor, Mary Cummings, with the support of the Litchfield Middle School PTO, hosted by hospitality coordinator Cathy Snyder.
