Dear South School Families:


We wanted to say a tremendous thank you to all our South School families for your generosity during our Thanksgiving Food Drive this year.  Your donations will help many food insecure children and families in the area during this time of need.  Our final count of donations is 1,623 items!  As a school our learners earned a Whole School PJ Day with Slippers or Comfy Shoes in the Classroom!  Also, thank you to our student council for organizing this event and assisting with the counting and packing of the donated items. 


BIG plans are underway for a WINTER WONDERLAND sponsored by the PTAs from South, North, Matthew Thornton and Moose Hill Schools to be held on the Londonderry Town Common on Saturday, December 11 from 9:00AM to 1:00PM. Come see Santa, write him a letter, play games, make a decoration and make crafts! Details will be coming soon!


We would like to extend a huge thank you to all our Adopt-a-Family contributors. All the slots have been taken.  However, if you are still looking for a way to give to families, a new line for gift cards has been added at the bottom of the Sign-Up Genius link. The most beneficial gift cards are for groceries and gas, as well as Walmart, Target or Amazon gift cards.


Adopt-a-Family Sign-up Genius 2021

We request that you deliver the unwrapped gifts, labeled with the family number, family member, and their age, if applicable, to South School (88 South Rd., Londonderry) during the timeframe of November 22 through December 3. Boxes labeled with each family number will be in the school lobby for drop off. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the South School PTA @

Registration is open for the 2022 Learn to Ski and Snowboard Club, sponsored by McIntyre Ski Area. Register online at (click the Learn to Ski Tab, click School Programs, select Londonderry South, and fill out the registration form). The deadline for registering is Monday, December 20. Hope for SNOW! McIntyre will be hosting fitting and information nights in the ski shop on Nov 21st 12-4pm, Dec 7th 6-7pm, Dec 9th 6-7pm and Dec 13th 6-7pm.


Many children came to school without coats today. It was very chilly at recess. As we enter this winter season, it will be very important for your child to have appropriate outer wear. When there is snow, children need all five pieces to play in the snow – coat, hat, snow pants, gloves, and boots.


Did you know that Amazon Smile is a simple way to help the PTA! Visit and choose "South Londonderry School PTA", and a portion of your Amazon purchases will automatically be donated right back to the PTA!


This week through to Thanksgiving, we are revisiting some of the breaths we have learned during morning announcements. This week we practiced Balloon Breath, Ocean Breath, Bumble Bee Breath, Washing Machine and Geyser (my favorite!). Have your child teach you their favorite from this list! Notice how you feel.


If you would like to view the most updated information on active COVID cases within the district, please click on the November tab of the Londonderry School District Public COVID 19 Dashboard 2021-22.


Don’t forget to look for our own Katelyn O’Neill, a former Hip Hoppin’ Hawk and now a sophomore at LHS, marching with a national jump rope team in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! Katelyn will be one of 130 jumpers from around the country that has been chosen to jump in the Macy’s Parade.


Since this is my last letter to you before the holiday, I want to take this opportunity to wish your families a heart-warming, and healthy Thanksgiving Day together. For those who are traveling, please be safe. (Please note that school will be in session on Monday and Tuesday, November 22 and 23.)


Be sure to visit the Londonderry High School Craft Fair tomorrow from 9:00AM – 3:00PM!


Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy your holiday preparations!


We Choose Love,                          


Linda Boyd
