Dodgeball fight is on in Windham

Matthew and Michael Senibaldi, both 12, have circulated an online petition in hopes of convincing the Windham School Board to reconsider their recent decision to remove dodgeball from the district curriculum.

WINDHAM - When it comes to the School Board's recent ban of dodgeball in their district, two Windham seventh-graders are calling foul.

Upset about the discontinuation of dodgeball and other such games in their gym classes, Matthew and Michael Senibaldi, twin sons of School Board member Dennis Senibaldi, have taken matters into their own hands.

The 12-year-old boys, whose father was the sole board member to object to the ban of all "human contact" games earlier this month, posted an online petition this week in hopes of convincing the board to let the games go on.
