New principal named for Hallsville Elementary School

Superintendent of Schools Bolgen Vargas has named Christopher MacDonald the next principal of Hallsville Elementary School. Manchester’s Board of School Committee approved MacDonald’s nomination at this week’s meeting.

MacDonald moves into his new position from Northwest Elementary School in Manchester, where he was assistant principal since 2008.  His career in education also includes eight years teaching third and fourth grades in Hooksett.

“While they differ in size, Northwest and Hallsville have many similarities as neighborhood schools committed to the success of all students,” said MacDonald. “I am excited to get to know Hallsville staff, students and families and lead them in their continued efforts toward high achievement.”

“Mr. MacDonald will be a terrific asset to the Hallsville community,” Dr. Vargas said. “His leadership experience and commitment to excellence will help students reach their highest potential.”

MacDonald succeeds Bonnie Skogsholm, who retired at the end of…

Middle School at Parkside gets gift from construction industry: Career Exploration program is poised to serve as state-wide model

Local politicians, school district officials, and educators joined Associated Builders and Contractors of New Hampshire/Vermont (ABC) and its Young Professionals Group as they delivered a $2,000 donation, in addition to commitments from local companies, to help support the Middle School at Parkside’s new careers in construction exploration program.

“We are delighted to deliver this money and industry support to the school,” said Joshua Reap, President of ABC. “And the investment is more than just this check. Our contractors will invest materials to give the students projects and dozens of hours from their skilled workforce to teach the kids what a career in construction looks like.”

“For ABC, this is an investment in our community to create a better tomorrow,” added Reap.

According to ABC research, over 500,000 construction jobs need to be filled across the country. This need led Manchester Board of School Committee member and local construction executive Jimmy Lehoux to push for the…

Manchester City Library eliminates overdue fines for young learners

Manchester City Library staff and trustees and Mayor Joyce Craig announced all Manchester public libraries will eliminate overdue fines on children’s and young adult collections, starting October 1.

“With this move, we can truly say any child in our community can afford to check out a book at our libraries,” said Mayor Joyce Craig. “The libraries in Manchester are much more than a collection of books — they’re pivotal centers of our community. No child should be unable to engage in learning because of their family’s income level.”

The decision to eliminate overdue fines is part of a growing national trend in library policies to promote reading. Manchester library staff also noticed there was an issue once they held discussions with families who said they hadn’t been to a library in years due to their inability to pay late fees.

“We’ve recently begun working more closely with the Manchester School District, and we realized we needed books to be as accessible as they can be to our chil…
