It was like a Day at the Ballpark at LMS

It was opening day at Litchfield Middle School last week and everyone celebrated.  Starting the day, students wore their baseball and softball gear from the Red Sox, Litchfield or other favorite team.  At lunch, everyone got a bag of popcorn and watched baseball bloopers as they ate.  PTO parents sold hot dogs and ice cream, just like at the ballpark, while drawing names for door prizes.

Thanks to great local businesses like Hidden Valley Golf Course, Lix Ice Cream, Mel’s Funway, Granite State American Kenpo, and Play the Game, as over 40 students went home with fun prizes.  Following lunch, students were able to head out into the sunshine and cheer their classmates on as they threw their best pitches.  The Litchfield Police Department stopped by with their radar gun so students could see how fast they can pitch.  There are some great arms at LMS, with pitches topping out at over 60 mph.  It was a great day to celebrate LMS, sports and spring.
