Hanover High School is an active learning community that provides broad academic and co-curricular programs. We engage students' minds, hearts and voices so that they become educated, caring and responsible adults.
All students are given the opportunity to use their
- minds to pursue excellence, academic challenge and personal success.
- hearts to respect and care for the emotional and physical well-being of themselves and others, and for the environment.
- voices to contribute to the democratic process and the common good.
The first two announcements below give an update on the RMS Principal Search and the proposed Ray School renovation. Both of these items will have a significant and lasting impact on our school district. I feel that one of the greatest strengths of SAU 70 is the involvement of our community, which clearly demonstrates the importance of our students’ education. Please take a moment to read the descriptions below. Wide parental and community input is crucial in both efforts. Thank you in advance for giving your time to assist us.
Enjoy the weekend,

RMS Principal Search:
Dear Hanover and Norwich Community Members:
As you may have read in last week’s Valley News, the Dresden School Board has announced two distinguished finalists for the new Principal of Richmond Middle School (RMS), who will begin on July 1, 2014. Our two finalists, Mr. Garon Smail, and Mr. Michael Lepene, will be visiting RMS Tuesday and Thursday of next week (December 10th and 12th).
The RMS Principal Search Committee will be hosting community forums with each of the candidates. There will be two sessions available each day, 8:15 to 9:00 AM and 4:30 to 5:30 PM in the RMS Library. We cordially invite our parents and community members to meet our two finalists during these scheduled times for an informal question and answer session. We will also have survey questions for folks to fill out at the conclusion of each forum, which will help guide our understanding of the communities’ observations and impressions of Mr. Smail and Mr. Lepene.
We know this is a busy time of year with the holiday season fast approaching, but wanted to extend every courtesy to our respective communities so that you may have the opportunity to weigh in on who will be our next principal of Richmond Middle School.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the superintendent’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org, or (603)-643-6050.
Hanover School Board To Discuss Ray School Renovation and Expansion Project
The Hanover School Board will be discussing recent renovation and expansion plans proposed for the Ray School during their regularly scheduled school board meeting of Wednesday, December 18th, at 7:00 PM in the Ray School Music Room. The Building Committee, chaired by board member Jona Roberts will be leading the discussion in concert with Banwell Architects, who are responsible for the architectural design of the project. This will be the second presentation to the board, and another will follow in January.
We would like to hear from our public and hope that you will have the opportunity to come to the meeting and offer commentary during the discussion phase, which will take place after the presentation. For further information, please see our website where you can find all building committee meeting minutes as well as detailed plans of the proposed project. We have tried to tailor our recommendations with an eye towards savings. We realize this is a major undertaking, and therefore, requires a great deal of communication with and consideration of our voting public.
We look forward to seeing you on the evening of the 18th of December, if your schedule permits. If not, perhaps you will be able to view it on the local cable channel. Please let us know your thoughts. You may contact any of the board members or the building committee chair, Jona Roberts, email@example.com, or you may email or call the superintendent’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org (603) 643-6050.
