Second, Bartlett High School senior Tyler Adolfo deserves a huge shout out for his victory this pat Saturday in the youth speech contest hosted by the Lions.  Tyler was sponsored by the Webster Lions and has continued to rack up victories.  He is seen below with his coach and English teacher Mrs. Hensel and John Kalinowski of the Webster Lions.  This past Saturday Tyler faced stiff competition in taking the MA District 33 championship and walking away with a scholarship and the opportunity to compete at the state competition in Sturbridge this May.  Congratulations to Tyler and special thanks to Mrs. Hensel and the Webster Lions.  

Third, today the football team had their annual end of season banquet.  Above and beyond the teams accomplishments, I would like to thank Ed Kunkel (pictured below) and all of the members of the Gridiron Club.  Their selfless work and volunteerism are a beacon for the greatness we can attain here at Bartlett.  All that is need to change our reality is a small group of dedicated people.  Imagine how much we can grow and improve if we have a larger group!  Reach out and help your child's school  We need you!
