Dear HHS Community,
I hope everyone is able to unplug, get outside and spend lots of time with family and friends over the Thanksgiving break. I’m thankful that my family will be together in this gorgeous Upper Valley that we call home. Don’t forget that this is a ‘no school work weekend’!!
Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving,
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! Approximately 400 students need to be placed in caring homes.

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
