From our Principal
This week I wanted to highlight the Podcast Series that the SAU has started. They created a Podcast about the Strategic Planning Process. There will be a community meeting on Feb. 13th at 6pm in the HHS library.
Also, please do not drop off your student in the front parking lot from 7:30am to 3:30pm. This is our Staff and SAU parking lot and there are two signs stating this request in the lot. Using this area as a drop off zone is putting students at risk. You can, however, drop off your student in the student drop off area on Lebanon Street.

SPRING SPORTS REGISTRATION NOW OPEN
Spring sports registration is now open through FinalForms. If your student plans to play a spring sport, please register as soon as possible. Spring sports begin their seasons in mid- March. Registration is open until March 1.
If your student has participated in athletics at HHS this school year or already registered on FinalForms, simply log into your parent FinalForms account, choose the spring sport, make sure all the information is up-to-date and pay the registration fee. If you have not used FinalForms (new athletic registration system as of Fall 2022), you will need to set up an account to register your student. More detailed information on registration and winter sports can be found at Hanover High School Winter Sports Information.
Please reach out to the Athletic Department at 603-643-0655 or nikkiboyle@

Course sign-ups for next year will occur via students’ PowerSchool portal between 2/27 – 3/3. All students have been asked to schedule an appointment with their Counselor to assist in the process.
Please participate in the HHS Equity Audit!
To complete our school-wide equity audit, we need your participation! Please click here to complete the HHS Parent & Guardian Equity Audit Survey. Your participation will be instrumental in moving this work forward. At the time of writing, we have insufficient parent responses to analyze our parent data in a meaningful way. The survey should take 10-20 minutes. Thank you in advance for your help!

This week, Council passed the Diversity Club Allocation, providing the club with $300 to put towards hosting an event where students can learn how to DJ. Council then continued to discuss the Religious Holidays Motion. An amendment to change the motion to read that students would receive a week long extension was made and passed. Members continue to express their many opinions on this motion and its necessity and possible flaws. Many offered alternative solutions to the issue of students needing time off for religious holiday observances. Our debate will continue into next week.
Council will meet again on Wednesday from 11:00-11:50 in the HHS auditorium. The full agenda and minutes of Wednesday’s meeting can be found here.

We tried something new this month - a group of students went to the R. Black Rec Center to play games with seniors in our community. We had a great time. If you know of any seniors needing to get out for a couple hours, please invite or encourage them to join us on the second Thursday of the month from 3:00-5:00 at the R. Black Rec Center. This is such a great opportunity for seniors and teens to connect.
Let me know if you are involved with an activity Youth-In-Action can join. We would love to help.
Attached is the link to the March Youth-In-Action calendar.
I am still adding events so check back for more activities. Challenge yourself to try something new in March. March calendar

"This film is about the pacing of life and the close observation of our natural environment. It's about land stewardship as well as a tribute to a love lost and a place rejuvenated." The film was directed by Ben Silberfarb, who graduated from HHS in 1986.
