Hope for New Hampshire Recovery has launched a comprehensive new website. The new site is designed to make it easier for individuals and loved ones touched by addiction to find information and connect them with resources and recovery centers across the state. The redesign also makes it easier for people to volunteer. Visit hope for N H recovery dot org and check it out, especially if you or someone you know is in need of help.
Today is Leadership Day for the students of Manchester’s Gossler Park Elementary School. Students will celebrate the end of the academic year and their “Leader in Me” program by presenting the leadership skills they have learned throughout the year. Members of the community are invited to hear what the seven “Leader in Me” habits are. They’re based on Steven Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. Attendees will see the leadership skills that Gossler students have developed during classroom visits where the children will demonstrate how they put those principles into practice to achieve their goals. A school assembly will begin at 9:30 a.m., followed by student-led tours, classroom visits and light refreshments until 11:30 a.m.
Next week, Gossler will host a Neighborhood Block Party to celebrate its participation in the Community Schools Project. On May twenty sixth, seventy fourth and fifth graders from the school will receive a bike pack, which includes a bicycle, bike helmet, light and lock from the Q C Bike Collective. To get the stuff, the kids had to demonstrate their leadership skills on the Seven Habits of Highly Effective Students from the “Leader in Me” program we just mentioned and complete additional time each week in reading and math.
Last night, ninety kids at Beech Street School received their bike packs during their neighborhood celebration, which attracted more than six hundred people who were nicely entertained by a D J, police horses and more!
