A big thanks to everyone who was involved in May Intensive (MI). It was wonderful to see the students participating in a myriad of activities in and around the school and community. The HHS staff worked hard to provide meaningful experiences to our students. The students I spoke with all had a great time and learned something new.
HHS is now heading into the final weeks of the 20-21 school year. Please remind your student to stay focused on their studies and to reach out to their respective teachers or counselor if they have any questions. All of the end of year dates have been posted in Schoology.
May 31 - NO SCHOOL
June 2 - In-person Day for in-person HHS students (remote for remote students) - Students will follow a Tuesday schedule
June 7 - Last day of classes for seniors. Teachers of seniors will expect attendance unless otherwise stated by course on this day
June 14 - Last day of school for underclassmen
Have a great weekend!
Notes from the Health Office:
It is that time of year…the ticks are out in full force, just when we all want to be enjoying the great outdoors.
Please remind your children to wear bug repellent when engaging in outdoor activities, and to do a complete “tick check” throughout the day.
Please see the link below to get information about proper tick removal technique, as well as signs and symptoms of Lyme Disease. Contact your PCP if you find a tick that is engorged and deeply embedded in the skin.

A note from RMS:
At the Frances C. Richmond middle school, we consider our library the heart of our school. It is a welcoming space, full of a myriad of authentic voices that allow our students to find books that speak to them. In an effort to upgrade the space RMS recently secured a grant to re-imagine the space to make it even more welcoming. At the current time we have raised over $75,000 through the Bryne foundation and multiple community donations. We are very close to our final goal of slightly over $80,000 to complete the entire renovation in one year. Please consider giving some money to our effort to build and enhance our heart.
To see a plan for the new library click here.
Please send a check, payable to the Dresden School district to 63 Lyme rd, Hanover, NH 03755.
We at RMS thank you for helping our community.
