Dear Hanover High School Community,
Today US Veterans from the Tuck School’s Veterans Club will be making their annual visit to social studies classes to share their experiences. I would like to publicly thank the Veterans for taking the time from their busy schedules to make history come alive for our students. More importantly, I would like to thank them for their service. I would also like to thank our social studies department for always working to make learning active and experiential.
Thank you to all who have served in our community and beyond! Have a great weekend,
Justin M. Campbell

Congratulations to the November Student of the month, Ethan Skirvin. Ethan's contributions to the music department spread far beyond just his performance on the drums. He has performed with Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, Jazz Lab and the Symphony Orchestra at some point in his high school career. He has even been heard lending his drumming skills to the Chorus, Footnotes and Footlighters productions as well. He never turns down an opportunity to challenge himself and learn more about his instrument.
Not only is Ethan an exceptional musician, but also a kind and caring member of the Music Department community. As the leader of the percussion section, he frequently assists any student that needs support without hesitation. He shares parts and roles so that the entire section can grow as one. Ethan moves, checks on and cares for department equipment as if it was his own. The countless hours he practices, models for other students what can be achieved with hard work. He is playing at a professional level and will find success beyond high school with his music. Ethan has an infectious smile and spreads joy to those around him in the music department.
Congratulations to Kate Henggeler (Computer Science) as Students of the Month at the Hartford Area Career and Technology Center (HACTC)!!
