Symphonic band will still be a part of the regular LHS school day

To The Daily Sun,

Dear LHS Community:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members of the Laconia High School community. It is quite evident through the outpouring of support from the community, teachers, and students that the music program at Laconia High School will continue to thrive. As you are aware, Laconia High School suffered a nearly $600,000 budget reduction for the 2016-2017 school year. In the light of this reality difficult decisions had to be made, and unfortunately each decision affected our LHS students in various ways.

However, through the collaborative efforts of the district administrators and the Laconia High School music program director, Symphonic Band will not be moved from the regular school day. Instead, it will be offered during Sachem Support, a multi-tiered flex block that provides academic interventions and enrichment opportunities for all students during the regular school day.
We believe this decision will best serve the students of Laconia High School.
David Bartlett
Interim Principal
Laconia High School

I'm running for state rep; I'd like to discuss your interests/concerns

To The Daily Sun,

My name is Tom Dawson. I am running for the position of State Representative for Laconia. I came to Laconia in 1972 and with one exception have been here ever since.

I don't walk very well, so I will be using my 1916 Cadillac as the centerpiece for my campaign. You may have seen me in the Fourth of July parade loaded with all the family cousins. I will not be going door-to-door, but will try to meet people at the farmers market and other events.

Watch for display ads and more Letters to the Editor concerning my qualifications and beliefs on various issues facing our state. If you have questions please call me at 524-5935 or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

I love this state and want to serve the people of New Hampshire, and especially Laconia.

See you around. Feel free to introduce yourself and discuss your interests and concerns. Don't forget to vote in the Primary on Tuesday, Sept. 13. Five of us are running for four seats.

Tom Dawson
