Order your 2020 Yearbook
Online yearbook orders are open. Go to: https://hanoverhigh.picaboo.com to place your order and pay online. Or you can place your order by sending in a check for $65 payable to Hanover High School to Jessica Eakin (in the library).
The yearbook has several features specifically for seniors:
Parent Ads: Go to Picaboo to purchase and design your parent ad. Parent ads go at the end of the yearbook and are a message you send to your child or to the class of 2020. Learn about purchasing and designing your ad.
Senior Photos: The yearbook uses student ID photos, but seniors can submit an alternative photo. The photo does not have to be a professional photo. Send alternative senior photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Senior Sections: Every senior gets a third of a page to design. Seniors will learn more about creating their senior section at a class meeting in November. Students are responsible for creating their senior sections.
We are still in need of host families for the New England Music Festival-being hosted at Hanover High School March 19-21. Please email our housing chair Bettina Read at email@example.com if you can host 2 students for their stay!
From the Counseling Office:
We are pleased to announce registration for Destination College 2020 is now open! NHHEAF's (New Hampshire Higher Education Assistance Foundation) FREE signature event will be held Saturday, March 28th at Saint Anselm College in Manchester from 8:30-2:00.
This FREE event is a great way to start the college process for juniors. The day features many different 60 minute sessions that you can attend as a parent, as a student, or as a family; everyone who attends registers individually for their own sessions. Learn more about financial aid, essay writing, social media in the college process, how to choose a major, and many more informative sessions. Visit the Destination College Website for all the details of the day.
Beginning at noon, the event features a large college fair with over 70 colleges from across New England in attendance. It is a great way to meet and talk with college representatives who will be the first readers of your applications in September. Here is a great Destination College video (less than a minute!) to learn more.
Items needed for March Intensive
Do you have fleece, blankets, and/or flannel sheets (full size or larger) that you no longer need?

We are also looking for lengths of new cotton fabric for use in backing.
You may drop items off at the high school or contact Jeanine King (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange for pick up.
