Our Drama Club will present:
"Where There's A Will, There's A Murder"

Synopsis
When ten distant relatives learn that each of them is about to inherit a million dollars, wheels begin to turn and plots hatch. If someone doesn't make it through the stormy weekend ahead, their share will be divided equally among the others. It doesn't take a mathematical genius to figure out that less is more. As bodies pile up, the laughs come fast and furiously in this ‘whodunnit’ that proves that Where There’s a Will, There’s a Murder.

This is a play about not being in a play, ironically expressed through a hilarious series of monologues, duets, and ensemble scenes. From early traumas involving a glory-seeking elementary school teacher to possible disturbances in the global climate, 15 Reasons Not To Be in a Play keeps the audience guessing just what scenario will be next.

Congratulations Mr. Whited!

Congratulations to Mr. Jefferson Whited
2015-2016
Litchfield Middle School's Building TEACHER OF THE YEAR

. . . and a WONDERFUL ONE!

He gives so much to his students in the classroom and even more of himself and his precious time are given to our kids 'outside' of his classes and after school hours.

He has received grants for his students to take part in various activities including The Soap Box Derby and the Planning/redo of the Courtyard at LMS . . . He was the Coach for our Girl's City Champs Basketball Team and he organizes the Litchfield Ski Club every year . As Litchfield's Gateway to Technology teacher, Mr. Whited accompanies his students on various excursions like the Firestone High School Middle School Robotics Competitions each year and the Genius Project this year. Our teachers give so much to our children during these important and sometimes difficult years between elementary and high school. We are grateful for every one of them, but, today we shout about Mr. Whited . . .
He has monitored countless 'lunch periods' and 'recess basketball games' and every day the 'presence' he brings to our school hallway considering his classroom is across from the School Office in a very busy spot during class changes, he is, simply stated, what Fred M. Rogers would call 'a helper'.
Tell your kids to say Congratulations to him before the year comes to an end or, even better - Give him a 'Thank You'.




Side Note:
Many posts to our Facebook Page grab the attention of our followers, but, never has one been quite as popular as our Congratulations post for Mr. Whited.
So far it has been viewed by over 2500 people.
Thank You so very much Litchfield Community :)

LMS & Genius Project 2016

Litchfield students took part in the Genius Project held in late March AND they, along with other APS Schools, came home WITH HONORS.

The 35 teams, composed of 175 students from Canton City, Massillon City, Plain Local, Lake Local and Tuslaw Local schools, displayed their creations Monday at the Cultural Center for the Arts. Marble runs with names such as "The Flamethrower," "Space Jam," and "The Big Whale" filled table tops.

Science Fair 2016

Please forgive us, we are a bit behind in the Sharing Nice News Department.  We hope to gather more photos, but, for now, here are 3 Litchfield 7th Grade students at the APS Science Fair held earlier this year..

This event is a rather big deal for our students. The event is 'big' in size (number of participants) and 'big' with regard to the pressure on each student to be prepared.

A 'Big' Congratulations to All of our Argos Who Attended 🤗

Mock International Conference

Earlier this month 6th grade French and Spanish students took part in a 'Mock' International Conference during their classes.  Students were given the name of a country that shares the language they are currently studying.  The first step was to dress in the common style of the country they were representing. The main event included students getting questioned about 'their country' to which they needed to reply in the language of 'their country'.  

thank you to Madame Barnum for the information and Seniora Scott for the photos
