Dear HHS Community,
We recognize that many in our community are grieving right now. Our school counselors are available to meet with students and families as needed to provide support and connect you with resources. Please reach out to the Counseling Office if we can be of assistance. Below are some resources that offer information about caring for ourselves and our loved ones in times of loss.
I hope you have a restful weekend,

Climate Change and Glaciers - My Work in the Earth Sciences
Erich studies how climate change affects hurricanes and nor'easters in New England, and how warming in the polar regions is melting glaciers and raising the sea level. His research takes him to the tallest mountains of Alaska, the center of the Greenland ice sheet, and the South Pole to collect ice cores that record the history of climate change going back thousands of years. He'll describe the evidence his team has found for the speed and impact of climate change around the world. He'll also discuss how he went from a kid who just loved the weather, to a researcher trying to understand how climate change will impact his kids' future.
Winter Sports Registration - NOW OPEN
Registration is now open for all winter sports. All students that plan to participate in a winter sport must register online with FamilyID. FamilyID is new to HHS this year and is a secure registration platform that provides you with an easy, user-friendly way to register for our athletic programs, and helps us to be more administratively efficient.
Winter sport registrations must be completed by November 15, but we encourage early registration so we can plan accordingly for teams based on interest. The following winter sports are offered at HHS:
Basketball - Boys
Basketball - Girls
Basketball - Unified
Ice Hockey - Boys
Ice Hockey - Girls
Indoor Track & Field
Swimming & Diving
If you have any questions, please contact Athletic Director, Megan Sobel, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 643-0655. More information can also be found on the Athletics website at https://hanoverathletics.com/.
Help us keep up our sponsorship of Partners in Health (see mission below) and sponsor a child in need. 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.If your child's common ground chooses not to sponsor a child and you would like to contribute, we welcome monetary donations as well as gift cards.
Contact Katie (email@example.com) or Stacey (firstname.lastname@example.org) if your family is able to sponsor a child. We can provide the child's age, gender, needs and interests. Thank you for considering! Spread the good word!
Partners in Health is a community-based, family centered program that works to meet the needs of families who have children with chronic health conditions. Partners in Health (PiH) will assist families in getting the care and services that the families feel are important. We are in collaboration with schools, medical providers, social services and other community agencies to help enhance the quality of life for these families. We service families with children from birth until age 21 who have a chronic health condition expected to last 12 months or longer, and has a significant impact on daily life. Possible health conditions include, but are not limited to: asthma, cancer, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, epilepsy, and heart conditions.
