Out Of Your Attic
Thrift Shop News
Submitted By Carol Hendee
There is a saying “If you
see something, SAY something!” That goes for the Attic- if you
see someone dumping a load of stuff outside our shop after hours,
please record their license plate number or any info we can give to
the police. We have had two loads of unusable items left
outside. Magazines were soaked, dishes chipped, items not clean.
We do not have a washing machine. Clothes should be clean.
Help us keep this store open. We do not have the resources to deal
with items that should have gone to the dump.
This week through July
28, a nice selection of infant/toddler toys will be $1.00 a bag.
They will be on a shelf by themselves so they are easily identified.
The Household shelves (there are three) will also be 1/2 price. If
an item is15¢, take 2 for 25¢ from these shelves (that includes
flatware). Saturday, weather permitting, our outside 25¢ and
50¢ clearance sale (you may find some Christmas items, who knows?).
345 Suncook Valley Hgwy,
Chichester. Mon. 8-12; Tues. & Thurs . 8-4; Wed. 11-4 & Sat.
10-4. 247-7191. (WE do not carry large items-no
furniture, no electronics).
Chichester Town Library
There’s always something
going on with the Summer Reading Program. Tomorrow, Thursday
the 26th, at 10:30 a.m., the library will continue rocking with the
“School House Rock” show. This longstanding television show
taught a generation or two through music and illustrations about
subjects as diverse as math to how a bill becomes a law. There
will be popcorn for attendees. After the show, kids will play
with a mosaic puzzle.
Next Wednesday, August
1st at 3 p.m., there will be a presentation of the classic “Treasure
Island” by the Hampstead Stage Company, as part of the Summer
Reading Program. It is for both kids and adults and will be
held at the Grange/Town Hall, 54 Main Street, followed by a “have it
your way” ice cream sundae treat.
Mark your calendar for
the August 4th Down Under Book Sale, from 8 a.m.-1 p.m., with a
focus on pets and animals, as well as the stories of people’s lives.
There will also be a special half-price sale on vintage and
collectible books; and, a group of National Geographic magazines,
some dated back to 1918, will be sold at $5/dozen. It has been
confirmed by many that our prices cannot be beat.
A heads up to those
interested in our now annual farmers’ market: it is being planned to
coincide with the September 8th book sale. Interested vendors
are asked to contact our Library Director, Caroline, at 798-5613 or
There will be no fee to vendors, who must provide their own table
and pop-up shelter, if desired. Maximum space per vendor is

Upcoming School Year
Changes At Chichester Central School
There are many exciting
changes and updates that will be taking place at Chichester Central
School in the 2018-19 school year which will provide more detailed
information about student growth and progress. Competency based
education is a required system by NH state law in which students are
held accountable for identified standards and skills and are
assessed on their proficiency, or competency, of attainment of these
skills. The CCS staff have spent the last two years learning
about competency based education practices and writing competency
statements and performance indicators for each subject area and
grade level. The staff have also researched a variety of
grading scales that other schools throughout NH have adopted.
A competency is a
learning goal that students must reach. Teachers can assess a
student’s progress towards competency attainment through using
performance indicators that deconstruct a competency into various
skills. As students attain proficiency on these
indicators, teachers will be able to report to students and parents
a clearer picture of how students are progressing towards competency
attainment. For the upcoming 2018-19 school year, CCS
teachers will be implementing a new set of grading standards that
matches our mission and vision as a staff for our students as we
prepare them for high school and to be college and career ready.
CCS will hold student and
parent information nights at the beginning of the 2018-19 school
year as we move to this new grading system. More information
will be shared this summer; please follow this link now for
more information about competency based education in SAU #53:
Also in the 2018-19
school year, CCS and SAU#53, including Pembroke Academy, will be
moving to a new student information system called ALMA. This
will include student registration and student records being
intergated with our new grading system which students, parents, and
teachers will access.
Chichester Central School
is very excited about the upcoming changes and improvements to our
school. We look forward to working with our students, families, and
community as we continue to grow and learn together.
Thank You From CCS
On behalf of the
Chichester Central School staff, community and school district, I
would like to extend a grateful show of appreciation to the
Chichester Police Association for their dedication and effort in the
past year for the safety and security of our students, staff, and
families. During this past 2017-18 school year, Chichester
police officers have had an increased presence on school grounds
during the school day and during after school activities. The
personal connections that these visits create between officers and
our students will carry over to their future safety and security
within our community. Additionally, the Chichester Police
Association recently donated to the school over $600 worth of
mechanical security devices that can be installed at school and will
immediately and directly help secure students and classrooms in the
event of an intruder at school.
Thank you Chichester
Police for your dedication to our safety and for your continued
collaboration with our school!
