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.
I had the pleasure of spending Thursday morning on the water with the HHS Crew Team. I pulled into the parking lot of the Dartmouth boathouse at 5:00 am. Many of the 120 student rowers were already present along with their coaches and other parent volunteers. Students were carrying oars down to the water while others huddled with coaches to discuss the goals for practice. After a few minutes crews hoisted their boats into the air and ferried them to the water. Coxswains immediately began to coordinate the efforts. To an outsider it was amazing to watch the effortless way that our students/rowers worked together.
Once we were on the water – I rode in a launch with Mrs. Stevenson – I realized what a wonderful experience I was in for. We saw the sun rise over the Connecticut River. The boats cut gracefully through the water, occasionally changing course to avoid the barely visible logs and other partially submerged obstacles. The rowers worked hard, receiving coaching from adults motoring along beside.
My deep thanks goes to the entire crew program for inviting me along and to all of our community who so generously helps us to support our rowers.
Enjoy the stunning weather this weekend!

Foreign Language Teaching at the Ray SchoolIn the March election, a petitioned article asked Hanover residents if they would like Spanish taught at the Ray School, beginning in Kindergarten. The article passed 540-240. The Hanover School Board would like more information from a larger number of residents about teaching foreign language at the Ray School, and is asking everyone to answer a short survey, which you can find at the the following link:
The survey will be open until Wednesday, April 24th. Thank you for your opinion!
