Eight different enrichment offerings promise interest to students at many levels. Programs include Camp Kindergarten, Science Inquiry and Design, Creating Kinetic Contraptions, Computer Camp, Nature by Design, Somewhere Off Broadway, Fitness Fanatics and Cooking with Mrs. Gallagher.

Enrichment sessions will be held mornings and afternoons at various times and dates in schools throughout the district from June 25 through July 26. Registration information is available online at londonderry.org. Information will also be available in school newsletters and through school offices, at town hall or the library.

The deadline to register is June 7. Fees will be collected through June 18 at the school district office.
