From Administration

What happens to Lost and Found items once they are collected and have been sitting in the school for a month?  Items are taken to the home of the Lost and Found Parent Volunteer.  All items are cleaned and sorted.  Torn, stained, or otherwise damaged items are either recycled (via textile recycling groups or local transfer stations) or disposed of if they are beyond use.  Items that are still usable are distributed as follows:

Adult clothing and shoes:  given to the Clothes Closet for Homeless Veterans at the WRJ VA
Smaller sized clothing and shoes:  offered to DCYF and HCRS.  If not needed, donated to Listen
Water bottles:  given to local elementary school nurses for children who cannot afford or do not have access to reusable water bottles
Towels in good shape:  given to the Haven Community Shower program
Towels that have seen better days:  given to the Upper Valley Humane Society
Backpacks, lunch bags, sports bag:  offered first DCYF, HCRS, and the Haven.  If not needed, donated to Listen
Random items:  donated to Listen

This system keeps unclaimed items out of the landfill and places them directly with organizations who will share with individuals in need.  Items are provided free of charge to individuals via DCYF, HCRS, Haven, and the VA.  Items donated to Listen are sold at a nominal price and the profit of the sale goes back into the community to subsidize winter heating, summer camps,  healthcare, and food security programs for vulnerable populations in our community. 

All items will go to these places if not claimed in the lost and found by 6/14!

HHS Survey Results Parent Meeting

Do you have an opinion about Hanover High School future plans, March Intensive, and athletic fees, among several other topics? Do you want to hear what others think about these issues? Please join Superintendent Jay Badams, Principal Julie Stevenson and Hanover School Board Chair Ben Keeney for an interactive session as they present the specific Hanover High School findings from the 2022 Strategic Planning and 2023 Comprehensive Family Cost surveys. 

For these combined surveys, we heard from over 1,000 parents across the SAU who provided over 6,000 free-text answers; we are excited to share your collective thoughts on various aspects of the HHS and SAU 70.

The meeting will be held from 5:00-6:30pm on Wednesday, June 12th, 2024 in the HHS library. 

This Zoom link https://sau70.zoom.us/j/93935571400?pwd=V3Q5Y3liSzgwNUU0UmlFWDVTcVdDZz09 can be used for those unable to attend in person.


BeSmart- Firearm Storage

Recently, the Dresden and Norwich School Boards passed the Secure Firearms Storage Resolution.  As part of that resolution, we are committed to promoting best practices in firearm storage.  Here is a PDF from BeSmart about this topic.  


HHS Theater News


Playbill for Proof

Come see David Auburn's contemporary drama, Proof, winner of both a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony Award, directed by Hanover HS seniors Paul Ashton and Eli Hoffer! Set in Chicago near the turn of the century, this brilliantly written play is a nuanced exploration of themes of betrayal, trust, sexism, and (in)dependence.  The play follows Catherine's relationship with her family before and after the death of her mathematical genius father. Produced by Students on Stage. Cast: Elizabeth Chambers, Kai Adams, Martin Mosdal, Devidan Belisle.

 

June 7th at 7pm & June 8th at 2pm, Hanover HS Auditorium. 

Tickets at http://footlighters.ludus.com or at the door.
