Luke Barker, Laura Duguie, Molly Gallagher, Reese Idell, Trey Loving, Bella
Snyder, and Joey Zheng. Names were also pulled for the “Caught Being Kind”
blue ticket jar: Jacob Brown, Ryan Moulton, and Jade Gagnon. The lucky winners
were given gift cards to O’neill Cinemas.
Good Moves / Bike Nomination: EMS has recently introduced our winter
incentive for following our guiding principles and being a positive member of our
school community. Students who earn a "blue ticket" will have their names given
to their core teachers. Teachers will then get to nominate a student from this list
who they feel displays positive behavior both in and out of the classroom. A new
mountain bike and helmet will be given out at an assembly this spring. Thank
you Epping Lions Club for helping to fund this great incentive!
Sports/After School Healthy Food Choices - The Food Service Department in
conjunction with the Life of a Blue Devil (LOBD) initiative is beginning an after
hour food program for students who may be traveling on long trips for away
games, going directly to work, or some other commitment that does not allow
them to have dinner. The program may be accessed by any student who has
money or money in their school lunch account. Orders will be accepted by
9:15am on the day of the needed meal. Food service employees in the cafeteria
and the main offices will have the required forms for students to complete when
ordering. After school meals will be ready for pick-up in the cafeteria at the end
of the day. For athletes, coaches will be issued coolers in order to keep the dinner
cold during bus rides.
The food choices will include a sub with choice of meat, cheese, a fruit, chocolate
milk, and a bag of baked chips. The cost for this meal will be $5.50. The menu is
at the bottom of the newsletter.
Video Recording Permission Form – Students were sent home with a
permission form to allow or not allow video recording for educational purposes.
Please return the form ASAP.

PHOTO CAPTION: Dan Holmes as Andy Hobart and John Seymour as Norman Cornell in
Leddy’s production of Neil Simon’s hilarious play “The Star Spangled Girl”.
Epping - Director Elaine Gatchell has chosen one of Neil Simon’s funniest shows to open their
42nd Season at Leddy Center in Epping. This classic comedy is about two underground
magazine publishers and the flag-waving girl who moves in next door. Recapturing the feeling
of the 60’s generation of protests, this story revolves around two radical journalists whose lives
are radically disrupted by an earnestly patriotic young woman and self-described “religious
follower of Sport Illustrated”. It may seem a little outdated, but it is not without its underlying
political message, although it has nothing to do with politics or clashing ideologies. Like many
of Simon’s plays this one is of the boy-meets-girl, boy-gets-girl genre, and as Paul McCartney
famously asked of silly love songs, “What’s wrong with that?” It is witty, fast-paced, and oh, so
entertaining. Starring John Seymour as Norman Cornell, Dan Holmes as Andy Hobart, and
Melissa Opalka as Sophie Rauschmeyer, this is one play you will love from beginning to end.
Shows are for March 11 through March 20, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays and
one Wednesday, March 16, at 2:00pm. Sponsored in part by NHPTV and partially sponsored
by Seacoast Coke and The Shark at 102.1 and 105.2 FM, tickets are $20. and can be
purchased on line 24/7 at leddycenter.org, or by visiting or calling the box office at 603-6792781, Monday through Friday, from 3:00pm to 5:30pm.
