Weekly Announcements

Dear HHS Community,


I would like to thank our junior and senior classes for helping make our first dance of the year a success. There were no behavior issues and it was a pleasure to serve as a chaperone and see so many of our students having a great time in a safe environment.


On the topic of behavior - we are entering the athletic playoff season. Our fall athletes have been quite successful so we will have many different contests taking place. I would appreciate everyone’s assistance in making our expectations clear to our students regarding appropriate conduct by our fans. Specifically:

  • Hanover fans will hopefully cheer loudly and energetically for our teams. We will not jeer our opponents. We especially will not direct comments towards any individual opponent.
  • Hanover fans will not direct comments towards any of the officials.
  • Hanover fans will not engage in negative banter with opposing fans.

We have had excellent conduct so far this year and I have every reason to expect this will continue throughout the playoffs. However, past experience has shown that with heightened levels of competition, increase numbers of spectators and, potentially, goading from opponents we can fall into patterns of less than ideal sportsmanship. I, along with staff, will be present at events to help remind students of our boundaries.


I hope everyone has a great weekend! Go HHS!!


Justin M. Campbell

HHS Theatregoers Club is planning to attend “Matilda the Musical” at Northern Stage in WRJ on Nov. 29th @ 2pm and Dec. 6th @ 2pm. Both casts feature several HHS student actors! Student tickets are $20 and adult tickets are $35. The club is planning to pay for several student tickets (to help make this performance affordable)

Students and parents, if you would like to join us or have questions please email the club’s advisor Yuliya Ballou for details at yuliyaballou@hanovernorwichschools.org. There is only a limited number of seats available. Reserve your seat (use the email address above) by this Friday 3:00pm. This Tony Award-winning musical follows the struggles of Matilda against her neglectful parents and cruel headmistress. An avid reader and brilliant young girl, Matilda dreams of a better life and a happy home. With the help of her kind teacher Miss Honey, the other students in her class, and a touch of magic, Matilda takes a stand against the evil forces in her life. The addictively raucous score propels this heartwarming story of empowerment. Here is a link to our current fundraiser if you would like to support our cause of making theatre a part of our students’ lives and making it more affordable. http://shop.meadowfarms.com/index.asp?PID=1648216

The Council Report : https://council.hanovernorwichschools.org/

This week and every week, learn about what’s happening at Council on the Council website. In particular, note the tabs for Minutes and Motions. If you have any thoughts to share, please attend a meeting or email Council here.

  • Council begins each year with a retreat to bring all members together to discuss goals for the upcoming year. This year was no exception, and the group hit the ground running.
  • Council videos: Prior to this year, recordings of meetings were available on CD in the library, as well as on CATV’s scheduled programming. Please contact council if you know of someone interested in do this for council. It is an important function for the group, and there is no longer a staff member who can do this.
  • Committees of council began work on various initiatives such as: organizing a council trip to observe another high school, clarifying the process for approving a motion,setting up elections for new and tuition students, surveying the student body about this year's winter carnival, and attending the monthly DSB meeting.
  • Fordy Daley offered his time to present ideas to the council members on what it means to be a council member. His insight and guidance is heartfelt and he is passionate about this body and what it means to be part of it.
  • Community Service Motion: The DSB will now vote on this motion in their next meeting Nov. 4th.
  • Freshman Off Campus Motion- a newly minted freshman council member brought forth a motion for 9th graders to have open campus 2nd semester. There has been much discussion and the motion has been amended to allow 9th graders to have open campus for 4th Q only. Council will review results of a survey sent out to parents, in next week’s meeting. The results will guide the discussion further. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VTePHLBarfKWcIMsiHVkrCCx9kkrxXyfQBSZEZp2qg0/edit?usp=sharing
  • Plebiscite Motion: this motion was brought forth by a council member to address those who feel council reps. Don’t always accurately represent the desires of their constituency. It would involve an amendment to Article XI in the student handbook, allowing the council to defer votes to the student body (majority vote would rule). Discussion is underway. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1KG2Enr5a82JQPWaBd2iNTDhvbqqidag58G1KI39d8tA/edit?usp=sharing
  • For those interested, the PR representative has created an Instagram account- https://www.instagram.com/hanoverhighcouncil/
  • Finally: catch up on council happenings in real time- by reading Caleb Benjamin’s blow by blow updates each and every week on the HHS Broadside- http://broadside.dresden.us/- Hover over “school news” then click on council to go directly to his reports.

*(The Council is the the governance body at Hanover High School, representative of students staff, & community members. It has the authority to act on all matters at Hanover High School not controlled by school board policy, state law, administrative regulations established by the Superintendent of Schools, and rules and regulations published in the Student Handbook of Hanover High School. )

**The motion now passes to Justin Campbell, who will veto or support the motion, with an explanation, within two weeks.

Please feel free to contact Community and Parent council member Kathy Marshall kmarshallvt@gmail.com with any questions or concerns about council.

Help us keep up our sponsorship of Partners in Health (see mission below) and sponsor a child in need this holiday season. Many Common Grounds work together to sponsor a child and this year we are reaching out to our community to do even more good! Please encourage your student to sign up their Common Ground or contact Katie (katie.lowery@hanovernorwichschools.org) or Stacey (stacey.smith@hanovernorwichschools.org) if your family is are able sponsor a child. We can provide the child's age, gender, needs and interests. Thank you for considering! Spread the good word!

Our mission...

For several years, HHS students and staff have provided holiday gifts for children suffering from chronic illnesses through the local Partners in Health organization. Common Ground groups, and anyone wishing to help, can support a child by purchasing a few items of clothing and gifts, or by providing monetary donations or gift cards. Families in the Partners in Health program have made significant financial sacrifices to access medical care for their children, who suffer from cancer, leukemia, chronic asthma, and several other illnesses. Providing special meals and gifts at the holidays puts an extra financial burden on them, which is why HHS comes together every year to provide much-needed support.


If you are interested in making a gift card or financial donation to help support the school's effort, you may drop off the donations at the Counseling Office. We will be collecting money and purchasing gifts during the month of November, and donations of any amount are much appreciated. Thank you!


For more information please contact Katie Lowery or Stacey Smith


Health Notes:

The Student Immunization Clinic will be on October 25th from 8:30 until 11:30. We sent the parent consent forms last week. Please fill them out and return them to the Health Office. We will be calling the students by grade starting with the freshman but will immunize students at any time if it better accommodates their day’s schedule. Please consider this preventive health care option.

Thank you!

Dear HHS Community,


It’s athletic playoff time!! The New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association sponsors neutral locations for later playoff games. These locations are exclusively in the southern tier of the state meaning a few hours of driving for fans making the journey. We will provide free fan buses to many (usually semifinals and finals subject to bus availability) of these events in order to provide a safe transportation option for our students. Details on the first such bus of the fall are immediately below...


If we can generate enough interest, we’d like to offer a free fan bus for the championship field hockey game this Sunday, October 28. Hanover will take on Derryfield for the state championship at 11:00 a.m. at Bedford High School. A minimum of 20 people will need to sign up by Friday at noon for us to offer the bus. You can see Carrie in the main office at HHS or call 643-3431 to sign up.


The anticipated bus departure is 9:00 a.m. from HHS with a return time of approximately 2:00. The bus is free and open to the community, but you must sign-up so we can make sure there is enough interest. A decision will be made by 4:00 p.m. on Friday.


Although there is no charge to ride the school bus for fans, you need to sign up and the bus is limited to the first 50 people. You will want to bring along some money, as you will need to purchase your ticket to get into the game and may want food from the concession stand. Tickets are $5 for students and seniors (65+) and $7 per adult.


If you have questions, please contact Megan Sobel at megansobel@hanovernorwichschools.org.

I hope everyone has a great weekend despite the pending rain and wind!

Dear HHS Community,


We are convening a team of staff, students and parents later this month and throughout the school year to evaluate our daily schedule. We will begin our work by listing and ranking our needs for time. We will be gathering input from all constituencies regarding your thoughts on our schedule. I anticipate using a combination of surveys and focus groups to give us both a breadth and depth of feedback. I will also send regular updates regarding our progress, our thoughts, research and best practices, etc.


My goal with this work is for the committee to bring a recommended daily schedule to present to the HHS staff, Dr. Badams and the Dresden School Board. If the committee develops a schedule that differs substantially from our current schedule I would see the earliest possible adoption as the 20/21 school year. Again, I will do my best to solicit regular feedback from our community and also to provide regular updates.


Lastly, thank you to all the veterans in our communities for their service. Our social studies classes spent the morning speaking with local vets about their service - truly an inspiring learning moment for all.


I wish you an enjoyable long weekend,


Justin M. Campbell

Health Office Notes:

We have had one confirmed case of Influenza A at HHS this fall. This person had not yet received the flu vaccine but had planned to. All of the 209 students and 55 staff persons who received the vaccine were vaccinated against two Influenza A and two Influenza B viruses. It is too soon to tell how efficacious this year’s vaccine will be.

Influenza Vaccine Composition for 2018-19:

An A/Michigan/45/2015 (H1N1)pdm09–like virus, an A/Singapore/INFIMH-16-0019/2016 (H3N2)–like virus; and. a B/Colorado/06/2017–like virus (Victoria lineage) and B/Phuket virus.

Influenza activity in the United States remains low, although small increases in activity have been reported. Influenza A(H1N1)pdm09, influenza A(H3N2), and influenza B viruses continue to co-circulate, with influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 viruses reported most commonly by public health laboratories during the most recent three weeks.

It is not too late to receive an influenza vaccine so please consider it as Influenza is a miserable disease. It also may have severe consequences in the very young, the elderly or the immunocompromised. Please remember if you child is staying home with flu like symptoms to inform the office when you call in as we send this information to the Department of Health every day.

Thank you,

Candace Nattie

Glass: Now You See It


Note: This will be the last presentation this semester. We will have more presentations second semester.


The HHS Math and Science Departments are working with Dartmouth Professors to present a series of talks we are calling ‘STEM Pathways’. Jane Lipson, Professor of Chemistry at Dartmouth and her research group develop theories and do simulations in order to understand how complicated molecules behave. For example, she has spent many years studying the large (macro)molecules that make up plastics. Lately, her focus has been on liquids that turn into glassy solids. We encounter these in a multitude of everyday objects - not just windows! So, it is a bit surprising that scientists are still arguing about some of their properties - but that is part of what makes them so interesting.


Date: Tuesday, November 13, 2018

When: Activity Period

Snacks will be provided.

The Hanover Christmas Mystery has been a tradition for over 100 years. It is a choral reenactment of the Nativity. It involves some Hanover High seniors and juniors, as well as community members. Hanover High seniors serve as angels and shepherds, juniors serve as ushers, and community members take on a variety of roles. Participation is voluntary and students of all faiths, or no faith, join their classmates in this special senior ritual.

This year’s mystery will take place on Sunday, December 16th in Dartmouth College’s Rollins Chapel, with performances at 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. There are a few rehearsals at the school and a few at Rollins Chapel, with a mandatory rehearsal the morning of Saturday, December 15th. Sign-ups for senior angels and shepherds and junior ushers have been posted on the wall across from the library for all wishing to sign-up. Parents, please let your seniors and juniors know about this opportunity or if you know any community members who would like to be elder shepherds, have them contact Melanie Golder (melanie.golder@hotmail.com) or Holly Taylor (holly.taylor@tufts.edu).


Dear HHS Community,


A few important upcoming dates:

  • The Thanksgiving break is a ‘no homework weekend’. I would like to encourage our entire community to spend the time unwinding a bit and being with family. Let’s stay off the screens, move and be outside!!
  • The next long period days are 12/4 and 12/5. We will be surveying students, staff and parents with regards to their thoughts on this experiment. I will send the survey in the month of December and our scheduling committee will use the data in their work to evaluate our use of time.
  • Our second dance of the year is this Saturday from 7:30 to 10 pm. All school rules are in effect for dances and all school events. Please speak with your child about your family’s expectations. I hope the dance will be a fun and safe time for all.


I hope you have a wonderful weekend,


Justin M. Campbell

Congratulations to the Girls Soccer team for winning the State Championship!

The girls soccer team played tough and determined soccer on Sunday, November 4 to defeat Milford and emerged as NHIAA Div. II State Champions. In a strong defensive effort, the girls held off a highly charged Milford attack for 80 minutes of regulation and 20 minutes of overtime. The girls then called upon their penalty kick special sauce to take the win 3-2 in the Penalties round . . . a great team effort. The girls finished the season with an overall record of 15-3-2 and took their third state championship in the last five seasons. Go Marauders!

Congratulations to the following students for being selected as Students of the Month in their respective programs at the Hartford Area Career and Technology Center!

This month the students were selected based on RESPECT, the first word in the HACTC Mission Statement. The HACTC is so very proud of these students!

Kate Henggeler - Hanover High School - STEM A.M.

Ruddock Smith - Hanover High School - Computer Sciences - A.M.



Glass: Now You See It


Note: This will be the last presentation this semester. We will have more presentations second semester.


The HHS Math and Science Departments are working with Dartmouth Professors to present a series of talks we are calling ‘STEM Pathways’. Jane Lipson, Professor of Chemistry at Dartmouth and her research group develop theories and do simulations in order to understand how complicated molecules behave. For example, she has spent many years studying the large (macro) molecules that make up plastics. Lately, her focus has been on liquids that turn into glassy solids. We encounter these in a multitude of everyday objects - not just windows! So, it is a bit surprising that scientists are still arguing about some of their properties - but that is part of what makes them so interesting.


Date: Tuesday, November 20, 2018 (rescheduled from last week)

When: Activity Period

Where: Room 302

Snacks will be provided.

See Ms. King or Mr. Hermanson for more information

57th Annual Norwich Christmas Pageant

Calling all HS Seniors and Juniors from Norwich……

This is your invitation to participate in the 57th Annual Norwich Christmas Pageant,

Every year, High School seniors from Norwich recreate this beautiful live reenactment of the nativity, complete with donkey, sheep and oxen, while Norwich Juniors act as Marshalls for the procession. This is your opportunity to become part of the history of this wonderful time honored town tradition, something we know many of you have been looking forward to since you were small children. We are looking forward to it being another wonderful evening.


The Pageant will be held on Thursday, Dec. 20th.

Rehearsal is Sunday Dec 9th, at 3pm, beginning at The Norwich Grange


We know this is a very busy time of year, and that you all have many family, academic, theater and athletic commitments. We truly hope you can carve out the time to be part of the Pageant this year.

We want you to know that the HHS, the Athletic Dept. and their coaches have been made aware of the date of the Pageant, as well as music and drama depts. If you have a time conflict with an extra curricular school commitment, please speak to your teacher, advisor or coaches. In the past they have been very gracious about making time for students to participate in this once in a lifetime tradition. There is nothing quite as glorious as angels and shepherds racing down Main Street holding on to their halos and headpieces, as they try to beat the crowd to the barn. It is always a very lovely and memorable evening, and we look forward to sharing it with you.


Starting this year, the high school can no longer give us a list of the names and emails of Norwich Seniors, so we are attempting to reach you with the help of some of your classmates on Facebook, so please spread the word.

To try to help us all negotiate this new hurdle, we have added a sign up sheet at Dan & Whits as well.


Please sign up there or email/text me if you would like to participate.


If you have any questions feel free to email or call me,

Sincerely,

AnnMarie Smith

Dear Hanover High School Community,

I would like to thank our entire community - students, staff and parents/guardians - for a great start to the year. I find the first quarter to be a particularly intense chunk of school. Our ninth grade students are busily transitioning from middle school. Our twelfth grade students are working to meet the 11/1 early admission deadlines. Our staff, on top of everything else, are writing letters of recommendation for each of our seniors. I’m truly thankful, in this Thanksgiving season, to work in this place with all of you.

Have a great Thanksgiving,

Justin M. Campbell

Table Talk

Table talk is a weekly message from the 9th -10th-grade counseling staff to ‘prime the pump’ for a discussion with your child at the dinner table or on car rides. Topics shared in the Principal's Weekly will range from what is being discussed in school to current events.

FOOTLIGHTERS GEAR SALE!

A Google Form for ordering Footlighters gear was sent out to the Footlighters mailing list this week. If you did not receive an order form and would like to order Footlighters gear, please contact Terry Samwick footlighters@hanovernorwichschools.org to let me know. Sweatshirts $18 (Maroon, with white writing), Sweatpants $25 (Black, with white writing on side of leg).

Dear HHS Community,


You may soon notice some unusual activity on the turf field, usually a quiet place this time of year. We are beginning a project to correct a drainage issue below the field. The plan is for the turf to be folded back along the far sideline. The town of Hanover crews will then bury a drain pipe beside the field allowing us to eventually disable (and fill) the compromised pipe which lies roughly 30 feet from the playing surface. The turf will then be put back in place.

I know this project will be of particular interest to our lacrosse community. Please know that we will do all we can to have the field ready for the season, including tryouts. Megan Sobel and I will be in touch with coaches with contingency plans (this doesn’t mean gym time), should the need arise.

Lastly, the carpet of our field is showing its age. Tony Daigle (Buildings and Grounds Director) has begun discussions with the Dresden School Board regarding replacement of the surface. Should the Board and, ultimately, the voters approve this project, we will try to do the work over the summer and avoid impacting the athletic seasons.


Have a great weekend,


Justin M. Campbell

Dear Hanover High School Community,

This morning we had just a dusting of snow, such a little bit you might not have even noticed. Standing at the front door I watched as approximately nine hundred students and staff filed into HHS. All of us tracked some amount of snow, salt and dirt into the building. Our daytime custodian, Earl, quietly and professionally went about mopping the atrium, spreading more salt on the entries and generally taking good care of us. Later this afternoon and evening Ted Stearns, our custodial crew leader, and his team will move throughout our school giving it a thorough top to bottom cleaning.

I’d like thank Earl, Ted, their colleagues and Tony Daigle (Director of Buildings and Grounds) for all they do to keep HHS in fine form. Their work gives us a warm, safe environment where education can flourish. Thank you all!!!

Have a great weekend,

Justin M. Campbell

Howe Library Maker Space planning

If you are a young person who likes exploring technology and making things and would like to make a difference in how your peers interact with community spaces, consider joining the Howe Library Maker Space Teen Advisory Board. The Howe Library is embarking on a new project to create spaces that consider the needs of young people—room to hang out and socialize, tools to create and share new things, and the spaces for exploring new ways of interacting and learning. We’ll be chatting about space design, furniture, programs, outdoor spaces, how you and your friends want to interact with technology, and more. Be a part of the conversation! We’ll meet monthly during the school year and maybe a few times over the summer, too. Snacks included! Email Rachel at Rachel.donegan@thehowe.org for more information or to sign up.

This year's Holiday Dance for Jrs/Srs/1 year alums and their dates was a huge success! Over 360 students attended, all dressed elegantly and ready to dance. They mingled to jazz piano then stashed their heels and boogied to DJ Omari from Boston. The Top of the Hop was all a glitter with holiday lights, flickering candles and the Hop's own mood lighting (have you driven by the front of the Hop building at night lately? Check it out). We were all struck by how appreciative the students were, coming and going, and not the least of their favorite things seemed to be the homemade cookies and milk we handed them as they scattered into the night.

We want to thank all the parents that helped, and would like to stress to parents of rising juniors and seniors that more help is really needed...please try to make some room on your calendar next year to check coats, bake cookies, decorate, set up the eventbrite invite, or chaperone during the dance. I guarantee you will find it worthwhile. As a parent of a senior, I found the evening poignant and heartfelt throughout, by all,

Congratulations to the remarkable success of the fundraising concert for the Haven! The concert was amazing! Nine talented upper valley young musicians performed at the concert on the 6th which included HHS students: Emily Bregou, Alice Garner, Joseph Goff, Miriam Herron, Jackson Lake, Miriam Viazmenski and Justin Zhou. $1130 was raised and will be used by the Upper Valley Haven Food Shelf to provide a half gallon of milk to 684 households and will keep the Food Shelf supplied for about 13 weeks. Well Done!


Dear Hanover High School Community,


This year we have a group of students, staff and parents evaluating our daily schedule. This work, while on it’s face a bit dry, is turning out to be incredibly deep and meaningful. At yesterday’s meeting, for example, the committee was given a short ‘brain development primer’ by one of our members, David Bucci, who is the chair of the Psychology and Brain Sciences Department at Dartmouth. The committee’s task is to step back from the status quo and look critically at how we allocate our most valuable resource - our time with students. What does the ideal learning environment look like? The list of topics that impact our work is long and varied - school start time, breaks in the day, ideal academic rhythms, mindfulness, technology usage, time for practicing new skills, time for physical movement, sleep, etc., etc, etc.


In the coming months and weeks we will be seeking feedback from all members of our community in a number of ways. We will circulate surveys (likely more than one) and will also be asking for volunteers to serve as members of focus groups. Thank you in advance for your time, this task is of critical importance to the future direction of our school.


Have a great weekend and watch out for the ice!!

Health Notes

Influenza has arrived at Hanover High School. Influenza A has been cultured from a student. Influenza A (H1N1) has been the predominant virus in the northeast with Influenza A (H3) being predominant in the southwest. This year’s influenza vaccine did contain similar viral components and the antiviral medications seem to be effective for these viruses. Those who received the vaccine should be somewhat protected. If they do contract the illness it will hopefully be an attenuated form.


If you suspect that your child has influenza please let the school know when you call to excuse them from classes. We then send this information to the N.H. Dept. of Health.

The symptoms of influenza are a cough, fever, body aches, headache, sore throat, runny nose, fatigue, and sometimes with young children vomiting and diarrhea.


Please let us know if you have questions or concerns.

Dartmouth XC Ski Center and Ford Sayre Present


Dear Hanover High School Community,


My children are five and seven years old and both love to ski. It’s fascinating, both as a father and as an educator, to watch them learn and develop their skills. My daughter, who’s younger, is much more willing to push her limits and try a new trail or lift. My son is more timid, only trying something new when he’s absolutely sure he can do it successfully. The parenting/coaching techniques that inspire one child to thrive causes the other to angrily regress.


Learning, at its core, is such an individualized thing. Different students require different approaches, pacing and supports. I love being part of a place where the community supports for education, the talented staff and the robust programming allow us to strive to reach each kid in their own way.


I hope everyone has a great weekend. I’ll be on the slopes attempting to suitably challenge, support and teach my kids as they tackle the Skiway.


With warm regards,

Justin M. Campbell

As you may have read in a January 12 Valley News article, several acres of trees in Hanover’s Pine Park have been diseased and must be removed to prevent the spread of disease to other trees and reduce the risk of accidents on the park’s hiking trails. Logging work to remove affected trees will start Jan. 28 and should be complete by Feb. 15.

· For the duration of the project, no parking will be available along Hilton Field Lane or in the College-owned parking lot across from the DOC House. The sledding hill and trail system along the west side of Pine Park—Cathedral Aisle, River Front, and Esker trails—will be closed to the public. The trail adjacent to Girl Brook will remain open.

Pine Park is located just north of the Dartmouth campus and is owned by the Pine Park Association, with shared responsibility for management of the park by the town of Hanover and Dartmouth College.

For more details, read the Jan. 23 Dartmouth News article or the Pine Park project website at:

Dear HHS Community,


Thank you to everyone for their flexibility with our recent string of delayed openings. I’m hoping we will see fewer ‘wintery mix’ days in the coming weeks!


I would especially like to recognize the extra effort our teaching staff has put into adjusting to our ever-evolving schedules. It’s no small task to revise carefully planned lessons in response to shrinking time with students. Thank you, teachers, for all you do for our students!!


I hope everyone has a great weekend. I estimate I will need to spend at least a couple of hours throwing sand on our driveway turned rink!!
