Dear Hanover High School Community,
We use a product called ‘PowerSchool’ to manage all of our student data. Next week all SAU 70 schools will be undergoing some necessary data management related to a PowerSchool server migration we completed in August. This phase involves consolidating student contact information from our previous model to a new system. In isolated cases, modifications to the contact information results in an auto-generated email to the contact. We hope to have this project completed before the holiday. Please disregard these auto-generated messages from Monday, November 25 - Wednesday, November 27, 2019. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding while we complete this critical work. If you have further questions or concerns, please contact email@example.com.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

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.

Help save our oceans!
Reduce your plastic!
The town of Norwich has already banned plastic bags. But when you shop at Hannafords, Shaws or the Co-op, do you use the little plastic vegetable or fruit bags? That makes the amount of plastic in our oceans increase! To help further reduce single-use plastic MCS 6th graders are selling cotton mesh bags. The bags are washable and reusable and are made of 100% certified organic cotton. They make great gifts for family and friends!
The bags come in small (8”x10”), medium (10”x12”), and large (12”x15”) sizes. By using these bags you will be helping reduce the amount of plastic in our oceans. The money raised will go toward the end of year class 6th grade celebration and class gift. Pre-orders will be taken through 11/30 and will be ready for pick-up/delivery in December. To order visit our online store: https://marioncrosspto.membershiptoolkit.com/packet/11699421
