Meet 6 Results:
The Math Team traveled to Amesbury High School on Wed., May 7 for the sixth and
final Tri-State Math League competition of the year and showed why they were the state
champions! It was a clean sweep, as the varsity dominated their division and JV
teams finished first and second (both shorthanded no less)! Incredible!!

The varsity and first JV also scored enough points to win their division for the year (a
first for Londonderry High School in many years) and the 2nd JV team finished 6th for the
year. Pinkerton, winner of last year’s division title, was reluctant to give up the plaque
but we assured their advisor, Mrs. Ellen Berchtold, a Londonderry resident, that it would
be in good hands. And hopefully for a very long time!

Leading the way for the Lancers with five perfect scores of 27 points were seniors Ross
Daly, Nate Littlefield, Christian Schenkelberg, Gregor Stocks and Alex Walker, with
a near perfect score of 24 points was senior Matt Gilzinger, with 21 points were
sophomores Aaron Beyea, Jess Fang, Jenny Heffernan and Nicole Peliccia and with
18 points were sophomores Rachel Moburg and Kyle Virgin and freshmen Brian
Eccles and Kevin Haddad. Great job guys!!

We also had two individual honors this year. The Tri-State Math League recognizes the
achievements of the top three members of the graduating class each year. This year LHS
was very proud to claim two of those three spots. Seniors Alex Walker finished in first
place and Gregor Stocks was third! They will be receiving scholarships from the
League for the terrific job they have done this year. Way to go Alex and Gregor!!



                See the wall outside Rm 105 for all the results!


    Team members who have not gotten the new tee shirt are asked to
       please stop by Rm 105 before the Pep Rally next Thursday!!!


ARML (Amer. Reg. Math Leag.)
Checks for $125 (made out to LHS) and permission slips are now being accepted for the
Penn State trip (just 3 weeks away - May 30, 31 & June 1).

I would like to have them by next Friday (May 16) if possible. We need to get
everyone registered ASAP.

More ARML information will be passed out at the Pep Rally.


Awards Banquet
Mark you calendar if you have not already done so - Tuesday, June 3 will be here
before you know it (just 2 days after we return from Penn State!!). Last year we
had a terrific pot luck dinner (right before the awards) and we are hoping to do the
same this year.

By now everyone should have received an email from Kathy Wolfe (Ross’ mom)
asking for
a reply as to what you would like bring for the pot luck portion of the evening.


Concerts on the Commons
A sign up sheet is on the front board in Rm 105 for the Monday night concert series
starting June 9 on the green (corner of Mammoth and Pillsbury). This is our biggest
fundraiser of the year and the main reason we can do some scholarships at the end of the
year.

We need everyone to sign up for one Monday evening; come out and enjoy the music.
 Concerts generally start at 7pm and go till 8:30. In case of rain everything is moved to
the Matthew Thornton gym.
